Awesome town. Like a fairy tale. Bit notice it's a little expensive. Many art galleries. But with a beautiful beach. Pueblo encantador, ideal para un fin de semana. Precioso

Very pretty. The cafes/restaurants are fabulous. Everything you could want and more. It definately puts a dent in your wallet and definately is... More

We love to stroll the streets of Carmel Village, read the menus and find a place to eat dinner. In the morning we often stock up at the local market for picnic.

Grabbed a cup of coffee and muffin at a small shop between buildings,that a local had directed us too. Yummy to both,but can't remember the name. Enjoyed walking and shopping the small shops,even saw some interesting restaurants,but with a 2 hour parking limit we opted to have our lunch at Monterey Bay instead.

We drove through Carmel by the sea village a few times at the end of our 17 mile drive. We finally decided to park and walk around. We were there for the President's Day weekend so it was crowded. Parking is hard to come by. We were able to find a residential parking spot without the "parking with permit only"... More

This is a charming village filled with lovely shops, bistros and just the prettiest street to walk. Take in all the atmosphere along this Main Street, there are several side streets off Main Street that also have shops, bars, bistros . We went in the fall so it was just so nice to stroll along.

If your time in Carmel allows you the time, it is a wonderful town to walk around in. The streets are easy to maneuver, it's not so big that you can't walk around and get to see most of the town. There are wonderful art galleries, clothing stores with really gorgeous clothing store, jewelery stores, hand made and craft style... More
