Forbes Magazine, no less.
People. Please. If you're going to discuss my home town, for cryin' out loud LOOK AT A MAP FIRST.
Distance: 72 miles on the Big Sur Coast Highway
Points of Note: You'll start in the idyllic Carmel-by-the-Sea and head north to Los Padres National Forest (complete with Redwood trees), then hit Carmel Mission, Basilica, Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, the Monterey Bay Aquarium. You'll see sea lion caves, cliffs and gleaming coastline.
For the record... Los Padres National Forest is NOT north of Carmel. Furthermore, neither the Carmel Mission nor the Monterey Bay Aquarium is on Route 1.
For you flatlanders, those points of interest, in the proper order, north to south, are:
- Monterey Bay Aquarium
- Carmel Mission
- Highway 1
- (a bunch of other stuff they don't mention in the article)
- Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park
Yes, I am feeling a bit curmudgeonly this morning. Thank you for asking.
