The central coast of California is home to numerous quiet, charming small towns. It's a different way of life here, surrounded by art and the peaceful sounds of the ocean. Small-town streets are filled with art galleries, eclectic shops and boutique tasting rooms. The drive on Highway One from Monterey to Santa Barbara is not to be missed, with rugged outcroppings, wildlife sanctuaries and coastal wineries along the way. The golf here is also a little different, with world-renowned courses perched on the coast, surrounded by breathaking homes and ocean views.
