Another great drive south of the San Francisco Bay Area is around Carmel. Just south of Carmel, California, along the beautiful coastal Highway 1, sits this quaint little general store and gas station. It is so picturesque with old English red telephone booths, antique light-up gas pumps, and a general store covered with flowering vines. As you ride along the incredible Highway 1 coastline, south of Carmel, you can stop here and fill up. You will think you are in Europe!
