Downtown Carmel-By-The-Sea, Monterey California

Description

Carmel-By-The-Sea's main strip is Ocean Avenue. Tall trees form a canopy over gingerbread-style shops and half-timbered hotel facades. As much as is possible in seaside California, it has the feel of a rich Swiss city- elitist stores and everything perfect and pristine, with the French and British countryside mixed in. It's charming in a country-club, unhip kind of way. Follow Ocean Avenue towards the sea and you will come to a heavenly beach of snow white sand and cold biting breezes.
