This shopping and dining area is easy to park, beautiful gardens, and great affordable restaurants with lots of pet friendly outdoor dining options.

Great food, bakery and nice shops. Small complex, but worth the time to stop and check out. Lots of parking, that's a plus in Carmel.

A few cute spots to eat lunch and dinner. Shopping was ok but not great, a few cute stores for trinkets and things.

Looks like a commercial area at first but really cosy and cute once you get into it. Good choice of restaurants and bars and some lovely little shops to browse and all very reasonably priced

I've got to join so many others in saying I STILL MISS the old THUNDERBIRD BOOKSHOP, such a delightful relaxing place to spend an afternoon. With that said, The ORIGINAL Barnyard is still my favorite place to shop while in Carmel. Beautiful gardens and walkways to set an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, lovely shops that carry quality merchandise, art... More

This are is convenient to the Carmel Mission Inn. We enjoyed lunch twice and dinner one evening. There are a number of shops offering clothing and jewelry. A number of businesses offering a variety of services. The landscaping is beautiful.

A new venue for intimate concerts. A fab cover ban, Almost Cut My Hair, aka Crosby, Stills and Nash. The acoustics were wonderful. Seating on several levels. A pleasant drive south from Santa Cruz. Look for more of these music events through the summer. I believe the next one will be blues and later in the summer a Ferrari classic... More

I was so amazed at how beautiful this little place was. It's actually not so little once you get in there! Cute shops everywhere, and some amazing food. Very dog friendly. Everyone wanted to stop and pet my yorkie and chihuahua.

This place is kind of dead. It is a large complex, but it didn't seem as though all of the stores were opened. Kind of a disappointment.
