  • My my if you're missing Europe in California visit Carmel. It's quaint, upmarket European village. French and Swiss village style shops and beautiful to walk and people watch too.
  • Absolutely beautiful here! We came to visit around Christmas time, and the entire plaza was decked out in gorgeous decor- trees upon trees opinion light upon ornaments and good cheer all around. Several cozy gas fireplaces with comfy couches make for a romantic setting. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main street, this one's a gem!
  • It is a mess with construction, two of my least favorite businesses are located here, but also one of my favorites, The Cheese Shop. One restaurant owner, driven out of business, is suing. If you park on Mission St. on the plaza side, mid-morning, you may be blocked in by delivery trucks that double park in a long line up that blocks cars from leaving. But the fires are nice, when they bother to light them!
  • Beautiful shopping area! There is plenty of dining and specialty food here, along with luxurious shopping. The flowers are so pretty too.
  • Carmel Plaza has about the only clean public restroom. They are not unisex. The restaurants in the plaza are good and easily accessible. The stores in the Plaza are boutiques, as can be expected for Carmel!
