About Carmel

Formally known as Carmel-by-the-Sea, the quaint seaside city of Carmel offers the quintessential California experience to residents and visitors alike. More of a village than a metropolitan area, Carmel boasts natural beauty and world-class attractions. Local lodging options include upscale resort hotels, cozy cottages, budget beach motels and numerous hotel alternatives, including dog-friendly bed and breakfast inns.

Outdoor Activities

  • 17-Mile Drive Scenic Tour is a self-guided motoring excursion that takes you on a meandering ride through some of Carmel''s most charming neighborhoods. Be sure to stop at the Pebble Beach Golf Course for a light lunch before proceeding to the coast for a look at the seals. The small entrance fee includes a tour map and may be spent like scrip at a number of Pebble Beach shops and restaurants.
  • Point Lobos State Natural Reserve offers a nice selection of trail heads from which to view an assortment of coastal wildlife, including seals, sea lions, whales, dolphins and ocean-going otters. Bring your own food, and be sure to grab the first parking space you see, because there may not be another.
  • Carmel Beach City Park provides a pooch-friendly, white sand beach where dogs can run off-leash. There are several levels of stairs to the beach, and it''''s not wheelchair accessible. If you''ve got the gumption to climb a vast number of wooden stairs after watching a spectacular sunset, a visit to this public beach park will give you a wonderful workout.

Galleries and Museums

  • The Whaler''s Cabin Museum Located in Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, this small maritime museum offers a fascinating glimpse into Carmel''s past. Constructed in the mid-19th century, the building that houses the museum has served many purposes; it was an abalone cannery as well as the ad hoc headquarters of the U.S. Army Coastal Defense Squad following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Be sure to check out the impressive whale bone graveyard behind the Whaler''s Cabin Museum.
  • Monterey Bay Aquarium is not technically in Carmel, but entirely worth the short drive north to 886 Cannery Row. Here you may marvel at an astonishing collection of oceanic life, including sea otters, penguins, giant Pacific octopus and hammerhead sharks. Arrive early in the morning to participate in the breakfast "feeding frenzy" tour.

Carmel Nightlife

  • Terry''s Lounge is one of precious few Carmel locations that offers something to do late at night. Here you can savor tasty bar treats such as lamb meatballs and skewered Brussels sprouts while listening to mellow music until 11 p.m. on weeknights and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Co-owned by Hollywood actress Doris Day, pet-friendly Terry''s Lounge is located in the Cypress Inn near the intersection of Lincoln Street and 7th Avenue.
  • Forest Theater is the place to be on a starry summer evening. Founded as one of the first proscenium theaters west of the Rockies in 1910, Forest Theater presents an eclectic selection of live performances with a focus on the works of playwright William Shakespeare. Be sure to bring a blanket, because this remarkable outdoor theater can get quite chilly. Get there early to snag a seat near the fire pit.

Carmel Weather

Carmel''s seaside location along the Central California Coast is typical Mediterranean cool. Even in summertime, the weather tends to be overcast, especially when morning fog fails to burn away by noontime.
