Time for some Californian history lesson! : I was really excited about visiting the place with all the research I had done prior to my travel. Exactly as seen in pictures, the Carmel Mission is well maintained with a gorgeous garden, architecturally beautiful chapel and the historical artifacts. We enjoyed taking a stroll by the premises and everything about the place that gave an insight into 1500 years of past!

avatarpicture eastonboyer THE BEST REVIEW
Another great museum in California: This is a museum dedicated to John Steinbeck with interactive exhibits. The museum is relatively small but they have some interesting exhibits. We took about 2 hours to explore the place. The set-up is really fantastic and took us through exhibits that showcase life from the past. It is a very interesting memorial dedicated to the author John Steinbeck.
