For more than a century, California’s central coast has attracted visitors from all walks of life, from movie stars and sportsmen to some of the world’s most illustrious artists, writers and intellectuals. Carmel, in the early days, was initially populated, as John Steinbeck put it, by "starveling writers and unwanted painters."
The Monterey Peninsula became a magnet for Hollywood stars and other notables following the opening of the Del Monte Lodge in Pebble Beach in 1919. With the opening of the Pebble Beach Golf Links and its selection as the site of the prestigious U.S. Amateur Tournament in 1929, the Monterey Peninsula became the world capital of golf.
