Carmel Beach City Park

This is a place where pets are as abundant as people, relatively quiet, and pet friendly. It is a nice place to relax and take a quick nap, there also many vintages points to enjoy the sunset. The best way to get here is to walk down from downtown, and follow the ocean street. Parking is generally full, but there are spaces on ocean avenue.

Carmel Downtown

Downtown Carmel is full of narrow alleys and courtyards to explore. A lot of greenery is ever-present, with many flower pots to complement the abundance of trees. This time round, with a toddler and a stroller, it was physically difficult to go into many courtyards and smaller shops, never mind mentally insane to try to do so in the first place. However, just walking the streets and doing window shopping are pleasures here.
