The most important of the California missions, this was used as a headquarters during the late 18th cenutry for the building of the missions and the Camino Real. The experience for the visitor is pretty great too because the museum offers a lot of artifacts and information.

Open Monday - Saturday 9:30 am to 5:00 pm, adult entry is $6.50.

17 mile drive

recommendation by goose

This is a scenic drive through Carmel-by-the-Sea, a beautiful hideaway on the coast of the pacific that's probably best known for having Hollywood stars as mayors (Clint Eastwood, Sonny Bono, etc.) but it has an older history as an old Spanish settlement and later as an artist community. Either way, the city itself is gorgeous although most things to do there are a bit overpriced - so the best way to see it is just to cruise around. 17 mile drive is a great place to start.
