Walking is a most delightful way to learn about the rich history and colorful characters that have created our village in a forest. Wander through flower-filled courtyards nestled among historic buildings while listening to tales of artists, writers, builders and dreamers who have contributed to Carmel’s unique character. Gaze upon storybook cottages that have enchanted visitors for generations.
