    Carmel-by-the-Sea: Off the Beaten Path Walking Tour

    Hello and welcome to this off-the-beaten-path walking tour of Carmel by the Sea. I am Lynn and I have been visiting Carmel since 1964. I have also lived here full-time for many years. When in town, I frequently find myself helping visitors with directions, or giving impromptu tours.

    This led me to writing a blog, Adventures of A Home Town Tourist, and developing numerous walking tours of the area. Today’s walking tour will take you, not only to Carmel’s world-famous white-sand beach, but through the northwest end of town on the largely unknown Jane Powers Walkway. It was named after one of Carmel’s early resident artists, Jane Gallatin Powers.

    You are standing in one of Carmel’s charming courtyards, the red-brick patio of the Pine Inn. If you look around, you'll see the Il Fornaio gazebo, unique shops, and the garden-view guest rooms of the Pine Inn.

    Now let’s get going.

    With the gazebo to your back, walk toward the black-wrought iron archway that leads out to Lincoln Street and make a left on Lincoln.

    While you walk, I will briefly explain how VoiceMap works.

    It uses your location to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. This means that I will be silent at times, when I am not giving directions or telling stories. It also means that you can put your phone away now. Though if you ever feel lost there is a map on your phone screen. And if you do get way off track, VoiceMap will let you know.
