According to the Carmel Chamber Of Commerce "Carmel has consistently been
voted one of the top tourist destinations in the country and you have to
see it to believe it. It is located on a breathtaking white sand beach
and the quaint European style village offers romance, gourmet dining,
shopping and fun." "Carmel has been a mecca for artists, writers, actors
and playwrights intent on creating an intellectual and cultural oasis.
Each year, visitors are drawn to the diverse festivals and events which
promote and enhance the creative traditions of Carmel. The annual Carmel
Art Festival, Carmel Bach Festival, and the Carmel Shake-speare Festival
are just a sampling of events presented by professional artists, actors
and musicians from Carmel and around the world."
