Carmel-by-the-Sea in Monterey County, California, is a fairy tale town designed more than a century ago as an artist colony, and indeed it has been visited or occupied by world-famous artists, poets, and all kinds of creative dreamers. Buildings here don’t have numbers but proper names. Gnarly old trees and cascading flowers take over the sidewalks. There are no streetlights or neon signs; therefore the city life is calm and serene, and on every step there is a quaint inn, a charming restaurant, or an alluring art gallery.
