If you've never been to Carmel-by-the Sea, California, picture a quiet English village along a rugged Pacific coastline. On the Monterey Peninsula just a two-hour drive from San Francisco, this seaside enclave is as charming as its name. Quaint, moss-covered cottages, a budding art scene, and streets lined with boutiques and restaurants make this town a relaxing escape.
