Carmel by the sea or known as Carmel, is a city in Monterey Country in California.
Carmel is known for its natural scenery and rich artistic history. If you are getting off from the 17 miles drive like i was, you will either pass or end up in this cutest little town of Carmel.
As you stroll around town you will notice every building/house and every alley way have its unique personality. Everything is so artistic and makes you feel like you are walking in a fairy tale! You will get the vibe that the town was dominated by artists! If you are into paintings, there are a ton of art galleries in town that you can browse through.
If you are window shopper like me or just want to enjoy what the town shop has got to offer, you will see a lot of unique clothing, art, decorative through the window! You will be so amazed by the number of unique items you will see in this town. Like I mentioned, this town is full of cutest little things 🙂
Dinning in this little town is a experience! First of, if you are a coffee lover like me, this town has great coffee! Definitely get yourself a cup of coffee before strolling around town!
If you are interested in dining in this town, i would recommend that you dress up a little. Most restaurant in this town is quite formal dinning style. If you know where you want to go eat, i would do a little research before heading there. If you are unsure where you would like to dine, no problem! Do what i do, walk around and see what sounds good to you and what environment fits you the best. I highly recommend that you take sometime and explore the alley way because every alley has a secrete little place hidden inside.
You will be surprised how romantic and beautiful the hidden alley ways are! It always amaze me every time in turn into a alley way and see what is has to offer.
If you are planning on staying in town for the night, i highly recommend that you make a reservation first, especially during busy seasons. If you don’t have reservation, don’t panic. Look around the little Inns in town and see what is available. There are are a ton of hotels and Inns available but they do fill up fast! But of course, the town is so beautiful, who wouldn’t want to stay for a night 🙂
This town does seem like a dog friendly town so if you are traveling with you dog or want to go on a little mini vacation with your dog, i highly recommend that you guys go explore this town together!
