Mid to late October is a good time, but don't be put off by July and August. While fog is a possibility, it isn't a total given. Fog can happen anytime through out the year. Summer just happens to be when it's more prevalent, but it often "burns" off by late morning to afternoon sunshine. At least for a few hours until it rolls back in around 5 pm.

I agree that October is the best time of year here. Though it's still a busy time, it's not as hectic as the summer. The weather is so unpredictable these days--we're in the middle of the warmest January that I can recall--but one thing you can count on is some fog in the summer. Whether it burns off or stays foggy all day, you can't predict.

I wouldn't avoid Pebble Beach because of fog. Fog can offer a refreshing cool-down if you're coming from summer heat. It can also be quite pretty in its own way. And as others have mentioned, it usually burns off in the afternoon, though there may still be patches here and there.

If you like music, the Carmel Bach Festival will be July 19 - August 2. Timing your visit to catch a concert or three might be worth your while. http://www.bachfestival.org/2014-festival

But whatever you do, avoid Classic Car Week which will be August 10-17, 2014. The entire Peninsula, and Pebble Beach in particular, will be a zoo that week!

I can't think of a month I wouldn't go to Carmel! Winter and spring can be absolutely stunning, and clear.

Although we are hoping for rain, this week will be prime.

Also, the fog I isn't the type that obscures everything. Its usually pretty high fog that makes things generally overcast.
