Monterey Peninsula

The best way to enjoy the charm of Monterey Peninsula with
its fascinating blend of romance, history and natural beauty is to
take the famous Seventeen Mile Drive. If it's a sunny day you'll
understand afterwards why tourists leave reluctantly and why so
many come back to live here. On this drive, which follows the
irregular outline of the peninsula, you'll see swanky Del Monte
hotel ... the waterfront of Monterey with picturesque old
Fishermen's Wharf and its colorful fleet of sardine boats . . .
many old adobes dating from colonial times when Monterey was
the first capital of California . . . marvelous views of the blue bay
with its crescent shore and the Santa Cruz mountains . . . historic
landmarks, including many of California's famous "firsts" Colton
Hall, where the first state constitution was drafted; First Theatre,
still used for hilariously given plays by the modern Troupers of
the Gold Coast; first Custom House, and others. You'll catch
glimpses of enchanting gardens as beautiful as when the Spanish
grandees lived their romantic, lavishly hospitable lives; and per-
haps you'll remember the lacy shadow of trailing pepper tree
fronds against sunny old adobe walls long after you've forgotten
Monterey's historic data. . . . You'll see neat little Pacific Grove,
the town where John Steinbeck wrote "Tortilla Flat." . . . You'll
have to pay four bits to get through the toll gate into exclusive
Pebble Beach, but it's worth it to see the world-famous Monterey
cypress, wind-blown into weird shapes . . . Bird Rock . . . Seal
Rock and its colony of playful sea lions . . . much-photographed
Midway Point . . . the costly marble palace of the Crocker
family . . . Del Monte Lodge where movie stars vacation. . . .
You'll come to Carmel, called the "paradise for writers and
artists," where you'll get glimpses of charming little homes half
hidden among the trees . . . streets without sidewalks ... a mile-
long beach of the whitest sand in the world . . . the house where
Lincoln Steffens lived . . . and down close to the sea in a rock
house with a tower built by his own hands the home of America's
foremost poet, Robinson Jeffers. . . . You'll see Carmel's business
district with trees in the middle of a steep main street at the
foot of which the ocean rises in a blue wall; where tourists are
delighted by shops as varied and self-consciously quaint as ingeni-
ous architects can make them. ... If you could stay long enough,
you'd find that an unusually cultured, mentally alert class of visi-
tors and residents is drawn here by the flourishing little theatre
group, a community art gallery and the annual Bach Festival, as
well as by the lure of Carmel's exquisite natural beauty. . . . South
of Carmel you'll find the old Carmel Mission, second of the many
started by Father Serra, whose bones rest in a sculptured sar-
cophagus visited every year by thousands of the faithful.
