Wonderful window shopping

Love the downtown Carmel area. So much to see and lots of great little shops and art galleries. A fun time for anyone.

Carmel is a wonderful place to browse, whether is it artwork, parks or neighborhoods, it is still quaint tho not the Bohemian Carmel of 40 years ago!!! We've grown up! Some stellar restaurants, fun celebrity sightings, great people watching and you can do it all with your doggie by your side:)

This place is my ultimate favourite place to visit. Such a quaint little place with a beautiful beach with the best sunsets. I go at least a few times a year. Go. Now!

Just as you would a storybook town to look like! The late Thomas Kinkade touched this little town, plenty of fine dining places to eat and charming hotels. Even if you don't golf take the drive to Pebble Beach

A lot of nice shops, but over the years things have changed. The Sockshop and Diggity Dog shops were fun to walk through. The Cheese Shop was a great place to sample cheese, the staff was very helpful and friendly. The Norwegian shop, Fjorn, was a disappointment. A lot to see, buy, and enjoy.

Charming town. Better than average tourist shopping, good quality restaurants and upscale shopping. Nice to stroll around.

This is a one hour walking tour from the tour bus stop at Carmel Plaza down Ocean Avenue and back. Many tour buses arrive and give their fair only one hour to tour our town. This is meant for those people who have but a few short minutes to see Carmel Village. Please click on my blog site below for... More

Everything is beautiful in Carmel Village, and you'd be sorry you don't live there by the time you get back to your car. Avoid parking in the crowded "business district" where you only get 2 hours of curb parking and instead either head to the free, unlimited-time parking at Vista Lobos public parking lot i(behind the Vista Lobos building at...
