Carmel has some beautiful beaches bordering small cliffs and steep hills, much of it in view from Highway 1. The town features the Carmel Mission as the main historic site, while downtown offers a wide variety of upscale shops and restaurants in a small village atmosphere. Carmel is about 15 miles from picturesque Bixby Bridge and just down the road from posh Pebble Beach and its array of golf courses along the beach. Clint Eastwood was mayor of Carmel back in the 70s, and you can stop into Hogsbreath Saloon which he still owns, but leases out to another company to operate, and where he still occasionally visits. He also owns the Mission Ranch, a local favorite restaurant and inn near the Carmel Mission, and the Tehama Golf Club near Carmel Valley.
