Hotels in Carmel

The interesting southwestern coastal community of Carmel lies 120 miles south of San Francisco. Known for its oceanfront beauty and artistic history, the Classic Art Gallery is one of dozens of galleries boasting locally created pieces crafted from different media. Walking tours offer a look at the unusual array of residential architecture, as homes were often constructed by local citizens. The Silvestri Vineyards are one of many venues offering facility tours and wine tasting opportunities. The white sandy shoreline along Carmel Beach welcomes locals and guests to enjoy jogging and surfing by day and beach fires by night.

Key Facts

Ocean Avenue runs east to west and the Cabrillo Highway travels from north to south through the notoriously dog-friendly community. The Monterey-Salinas Transit bus system offers transportation services throughout the city.

Hints and Tips

The Native American Esselen people were the first to inhabit the area that later became a renowned artist's community. The city enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate characterized by warm summers and cool winters. While seafood restaurants are plentiful in this beach town, other options include American, Italian, Mexican and vegan. The cultural center and theaters offer nightly presentations ranging from concerts to dramatic plays. A night out might also be had at vineyard wine tasting rooms, local wine bars or pubs.
