The name alone conjures up images of a sleepy beachside village, and the reality doesn’t disappoint. This picturesque one-square-mile town is perched on California’s Monterey Peninsula, bordered by famed Pebble Beach, Highway 1, the Carmel River, and the magnificent Pacific Ocean. A mere two-hour drive south of San Francisco and five hours north of the glitter of Los Angeles, Carmel-by-the-Sea remains a small peaceful community complete with European ambience and storybook style cottages.

The natural beauty isn’t just skin deep. Carmel offers a vibrant cultural scene built upon a longstanding foundation of impressive artistic history. Acclaimed writers, artists, actors, and photographers have all found inspiration in the town that once boasted Clint Eastwood as its mayor. Rich in scenery and culture, it’s no surprise that Carmel-by-the-Sea consistently tops best city and travel destination lists year after year.
