Carmel's Warm Beauty

Located near the California's lovely Monterey Coast, about a 2 hour drive south from San Francisco, Carmel is to me one of the more charming small touristy cities off the California Coast.

Famous for being the city where Clint Eastwood was the Mayor, Carmel is an expensive city to lodge in only a short distance from Pebble Beach Golf Course.

In a cozy 12 block radius in the center of this small town, there are many fine art and photography shops, fine dining, and shopping.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great Food, Art Shops, Peacefulness
  • Cons:Expensive
  • In a nutshell:A very nice romantic getaway south of the Bay Area noise and traffic.
