Carmel-by-the-Sea, often simply called Carmel, is a city in Monterey County, California, United States, founded in 1902 and incorporated on October 31, 1916. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Carmel River State Beach and Carmel Mission. Get outdoors at Scenic Road Walkway and Garrapata State Park. There's still lots to do: admire the architecture and history at San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo Mission and immerse yourself in nature at Point Lobos.

To see more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Carmel trip builder site.
