Things to Do in Carmel-By-The-Sea

View Map

The quaint and bohemian Carmel Village includes a five-block walkable shopping area on Ocean Ave. that is surrounded by rustic streets filled with vintage cottages and grand beach homes. The main business district is one-mile square packed with local art galleries, design boutiques, fine dining and elegant bed and breakfast inns.

Park and walk this unique village to really see the artistic history of each small block of homes and shops, all the way down Ocean Ave to Carmel Main Beach.

The village starts as you drive west down from Highway 1 and continues to Scenic Drive, which runs along the south beaches of Carmel-by-the-Sea and continues along the coast to Carmel Lagoon, Carmel Mission, Mission Ranch (Clint Eastwood's hotel and restaurant) and the Coast Highway.
