Whether you have a day – or two or three – Carmel will reward you with some of the world`s finest scenery, historic sites, art galleries, restaurants, and boutique shops. Carmel is a small beach city on California`s Monterey Peninsula. Enjoy its museums and library of the historic Carmel Mission, and the fairytale cottages and galleries of its village-like center. The Scenic Bluff Path runs from surf spot Carmel Beach to bird-rich Carmel River State Beach, with a scuba entry point. Be sure not to miss the sea animals and whaling museum of Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. Today Carmel Village is home to nearly 100 art galleries, and some of its earliest residents included writers Mary Austin, Sinclair Lewis, and Jack London.
