Hog Wild in Carmel

By Linda Tancs

Did you know that the Hog’s Breath Inn restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea is owned by actor and former mayor Clint Eastwood?  I’m sure you’d make his day if you stopped by for a visit, but that’s not the only attraction in this city in California’s Monterey Peninsula.  The town is known for its story book-style cottages, characterized by turrets and stone chimneys, like those at Torres Street and Sixth Avenue.  Another feature is its mile-long pure sandy beach.  And then of course there’s the visual and performing arts centre along with the third oldest art gallery in the country, Weston Art Gallery–not surprising, considering Carmel’s origin as a bohemian art colony.  This pet-friendly destination was rated a top ten locale by a leading travel magazine.  If you go, consider a scenic walking tour.  Then eat, shop and explore some more and find out for yourself why they call it California’s Jewel City.
