Carmel-by-the-sea's love for classic cars runs deep, which makes this little roadster #distinctlycarmel. do you know where this sweet ride can be found? hint: you're more likely to see it in a window than on the street.

Only a short walk to the beach, the seaview inn earns its name as a cozy and comfortable retreat that neighbors the shores of carmel beach.

With a lush garden exterior for a "cottage in the forest aesthetic", a little bit of sunshine gives the briarwood inn a truly angelic look. photo by @amandapomillaphotography

Splish splash, it's time for a bath! relaxation is #distinctlycarmel, and there's nothing more relaxing than a hot bubble bath. do you know where this tub can be found? leave your guesses in the comments below!

Known for her contributions to film, music, and animal rights, doris day has given back so much to the city of carmel. as co-owner of cypress inn for several decades, and through her passion for animals, day helped establish cypress inn as carmel-by-the-sea’s original pet-friendly hotel. we will remember her for her kindness, generosity, and commitment to her community. ❤️

Nothing beats getting nice and cozy in the lamp lighter inn's outdoor patio area on a beautiful day. except of course when the fire place is on, which makes the experience even better.

Carmel-by-the-sea has a rich literary history, with noted authors like jack london, sinclair lewis, mary austin, and beverly cleary having lived or stayed in carmel. because of its roots as an arts colony, literature has become one of the things that make this town so #distinctlycarmel. do you know where this bookshelf can be found? leave your guesses in the comments below, and maybe find your next summer beach read!
