Carmel: So charming that Clint Eastwood even became mayor


Yes the title is true, and once you visit you can see why he would want to. This charming place is about two hours south of San Francisco – a perfect stop on a drive down the coast to Los Angeles.

Stay at L’Auberge Carmel, part of the Relais & Chateaux group which has some of the most charming hotels in the world.

The food and service here is excellent, the rooms are cozy, and the layout intimate. They even have small touches like milk and cookies and a personalized welcome note. Pre-pay for a cheaper rate with breakfast and parking on, but just be aware that you usually cannot cancel then. Tipping is included in the price of your stay so you don’t need to stress about calculations.
Visit the beach here – either to surf, run or just lay out on the sand and enjoy the peaceful nature.
Take a romantic walk around the town to visit the shops or grab a bite to eat, or if you fall in love with the place like most people who visit – do a bit of house hunting.
As always, have a great trip!
