This quaint location reminded me of a childhood storybook. People were out and about, walking in the early morning, alone, in pairs, with dogs, strolling, power walking. The automobile traffic was calm, almost non existent. A wonderful place to explore at your leisure.

After lunch we strolled down to the end of Ocean Avenue, then headed south along Scenic Road. We had a delightful walk, speculating which house we would buy if we won the lottery. The architecture of the houses varies from traditional Victorian, to storybook charm,...More

One of the top ten locations for sunset-viewing in my opinion. Awesome views of the sun setting into the Pacific. Always a "must-do" when in Carmel.

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

Drive down Scenic from Ocean and after you've reached the bend where 13th comes in, park wherever you can and walk back. :) If you do what Mittyc201 did, I suggest going the opposite way: walk down San Antonio to see the... More
