Escorted Rail Tours to Carmel

The dramatic coastline of Monterey County

Set on a rocky cliff above the dramatic coastline, Carmel is known for its magnificent natural scenery and neat rows of quaint shops lining its Ocean Avenue, as well as its rich artistic history. A number of the city's mayors have been poets or actors - none more famous than Clint Eastwood, who held the post from 1986-1988. Like much of California, Carmel was colonised by the Spanish. It was named by the explorer Sebastian Vizcaíno, who named the town and surrounding valley for Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

In the 1770s the Spanish set up a mission in the town, building the first stone mission in California. Since that time Carmel has become famous for some beautiful architecture, much of which is found nowhere else in the state. Today, many of these buildings house an attractive array of individual, independent shops along with some appealing art galleries and tearooms. With the largely untouched nearby coastline also proving a popular draw, the charming town of Carmel is a highlight of our USA rail tours.
