Carmel is more than just a city, it's a cultural hub where art, music, and creativity thrive. Here, you'll find a dynamic downtown district, 17 parks and trails, and a calendar packed with events and festivals year-round (Don’t miss out on the authentic German Christkindlmarkt in winter complete with an outdoor ice skating rink!).

Nothing is boring about this suburban city! Explore the picturesque Coxhall Gardens, where 125 acres of natural beauty await, complete with biking trails, playgrounds, and a scenic fishing lake. Head to Midtown Plaza for interactive fun for all ages, featuring outdoor billiards, ping-pong tables, and more (and don’t worry parents, there are plenty of places to stop for a beer). Don't miss the opportunity to wander through the charming streets of the Arts and Design District, where galleries, showrooms, and specialty shops beckon with their unique offerings.
 

Places to Eat/Drink:

Indulge Your Senses in Carmel's Culinary Scene
 
You will never find yourself hungry in Carmel, the options here are endless! Vivante is a great all-day option, the signature restaurant of Hotel Carmichael, offering vibrant seasonally curated menus against the backdrop of the scenic Monon Trail. They even have outdoor heated igloos in winter to enjoy privately with your group. For elevated pub fare and craft cocktails, head to Matt the Miller's Tavern, they offer unique appetizers and tavern favorites. One of my favorite spots when I’m craving Sushi is Monterey Cuisine, they have a phenomenal menu and ambiance inspired by the California Coast. Finally, end your evening on a high note at 3UP (above Anthony’s Chophouse), Carmel's swanky rooftop bar offering unparalleled views of the city skyline. Cheers!
