Carmel is such a quaint seaside village nestled in a pine forest . The tree lined streets are full of boutique shops, art galleries,cute cottages, lots of cafes & restaurants.It is also home to a historical Spanish Mission with Mediterranean fountains & gardens.No streetlights, mailboxes ,tacky signs or discount warehouses are allowed here.It is also against the law in Carmel to cut trees & if mature tree roots break a side walk they just make a new sidewalk that goes over or around it There are no tract houses or mass produced anything.

The beach has soft white sand & is a very beautiful part of the California Coastline.
