The historic city of Carmel-by-the-Sea, known simply as Carmel, is located on the Monterey Peninsula in Monterey County, CA. Famous for its coastal scenery and artistic history, Carmel covers just over one square mile of land, housing a full-time population of roughly 3,900 people in addition to a steady flow of tourists.
The town was founded in 1902 when developers filed a subdivision map of the village that became Carmel, and the post office opened that same year. A number of scientists with the new Coastal Laboratory moved to the area in the following years, and Carmel incorporated in 1916. Today, Carmel strives to maintain its original character as a quiet town, with no big roads, street lights or parking meters, plus no chain restaurants or even mail delivery to individual addresses. The Carmel Bach Festival has been a main annual event for more than 80 years.
