Carmel, like Yellowstone and Barcelona, is not a secret; it is beautiful. As such it does attract a lot of people. It is obviously a very affluent area and I’m not sure that I would like to spend millions of dollars on a house to...More

Lovely unique homes on one side and beautiful Pacific views on the other make this a pleasant experience. I recommend to all.

Weather was perfect and it's not crowded at all on a Friday morning. We get to walk along the beach and take in the views of the pacific ocean. The little houses (albeit in the millions of dollars) reminds one of story-book homes.

In contrast to the busy Ocean Drive, there were very few people who were walking along Scenic Road when we were there on a lovely sunny morning. And the wide sandy beach beside the town was absolutely deserted. Charming houses.

A great way to see the best of Carmel. You won't be disappointed when you drive this amazing scenic road in Carmel, CA. This one-way road is unique and winds through amazing architecture and breathtaking views. Don't miss it. What a treat!

A beautiful stunning drive, seeing all the cottages and how everyone is a little different. The drive is amazing. I am so glad we drove, we love Real Estate!

This is one of our go to walks. If you are coming from town take 8th Avenue down to the beach. The Scenic Road Walkway starts here and goes about 3/4 of a mile out to the Frank Lloyd Wright House. Here you can continue...More

I walk along the Scenic Road almost every day and never tire of the different moods of the sea and the sky! Yesterday I saw 4 groups of pelicans passing overhead! I also love seeing the cormorants sitting on the rocks.

We did not walk the scenic road but drove along it as there are plenty of places to stop and get out and take in the views. Apart from the great views there are also plenty of quirky houses to look at along the route...More

Yes you can drive through the area. The road paralleling the walk has a few parking spaces which may allow the elders to get out and enjoy the view
