SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE
Big Sur and Monterey, California

 

There’s nothing like road tripping the Pacific Coast Highway. My favorite section? The picturesque drive from Monterey to Big Sur. Along the way, I learn about underwater sea life at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, then pay a visit to the “Artichoke Center of the World.” In Carmel by the Sea, I shadow a 14-year-old beekeeper who took a homework assignment to a full-fledged family business. Throw in an incredible bike ride followed by a ping-pong game with epic views, and you’ll see why Monterey and Big Sur are places to love.

Visit the quaint seaside town of Carmel for a coastal episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking.
