Carmel-by-the-Sea: A Fairy Tale City

October 22, 2014

Carmel-by-the-Sea and Hearst Castle are two of my favorite places in California. Its cute little houses make you feel as if you were in a fairy tale. Carmel has inspired artists, sparked romances, and attracted celebrities for decades. Rated a top-10 destination in the U.S. year after year, Carmel is an amazing, European-style village nestled above a picturesque white-sand beach.

There are some interesting facts that make this city unique:

  • There are no street addresses.
  • Selling and eating ice-cream in the streets is prohibited.
  • You need a permit to wear high heels.
  • There are no fast food or chain restaurants.

From 1986 to 1988 Clint Eastwood was the major of this town. He owns a restaurant called Hog's Breath which is a must if you are visiting the city. If you are a fun of the actor you'll find tons of memorabilia decorating the walls. From the menu, I recommend you try the burgers, they are scrumptious.
