"Don't miss the monkey and organ grinder" Carmel-by-the-Sea Favorite Tip by Shaft28

Carmel-by-the-Sea General: 25 reviews and 46 photos

  not the guy in carmel, but you get the picture
by Shaft28

Favorite thing: My favortie thing about Fisherman Wharf in Carmel is that since I was a small boy to today you can find the organ grinder and monkey there.
Small children can walk up, give change and the monkey will perform little tricks, kiss you etc...
Seems hokey, but I love it. A definite Carmel tradition.

Fondest memory: What monkey isn't your friend?
