Carmel By-the-Sea, California
Found on California’s Central Coast, this coastal town is one of the most picturesque destinations in the United States Of America. The Scenic Bluff Path is a stunning walking trail with views of the wild coastline and smooth white sands of Carmel Beach below.
It’s also a popular area for surfers, and the views are even more spectacular from the water advancing from Pebble Beach to the north and Point Lobos in the southern part.
Tourists and locals alike have the perfect opportunity to roam the streets lined with English cottages and Mission-style architecture in town. You can shop at upscale international or locally-owned boutiques or visit one of the town’s renowned art galleries.

I grew up in Old Greenwich, CT with Tod’s Pt., now called Greenwich Pt. It’s about 64 acres of beautiful beaches, hiking trails, picnic areas & a lovely view of the New York City skyline. No place could be better.
Went there in the 1980’s. Too expensive!
Where is Charleston, SC on the list ?
Visited 17 years in a row…July 4th week is great!….found a great inn 4 miles south of town…great seafood, shops. As a veteran loved the July 4th parade. Go back every year.
I love Cape May and their lovely “Painted Ladies”. The Victorian homes are beautiful; so glad to see them preserved. The beach is wide and not as crowded as other NJ beaches. My favorite beach town. Enjoyed the most in off-season without crowds.
