    Discover charming and characterful Carmel

    An upscale and charming city that refuses to play 2nd fiddle to neighboring Indianapolis, Carmel has a range of attractions that will appeal to the whole family. Travelers love to explore the city's eclectic Arts & Design District, kick back and enjoy a spot of patio dining in Carmel City Center, and stretch their legs along the historic Monon Trail. Carmel vacation rentals are as varied as the city's hotspots, so whether you're looking for a cute condo, a dashing downtown home, or a historic hideaway, you can count on finding the perfect spot.

    Explore Carmel's Arts & Design District

    No matter which Carmel vacation rental has taken your fancy, you'll find a range of activities on your doorstep. Kick things off by exploring the city's Arts & Design District, home to art galleries, antiques stores, and specialty shops for that perfect souvenir. Outside the brick building facades, you'll find that life-size castings of living people give the streetscape an appeal of its own. Time your stay to coincide with the district's Second Saturday Gallery Walk or visit in September to catch the annual International Art Festival, a lively event with pop-up stalls, live music, and meet-the-artist events.

    Get your culture fix in Carmel

    Whether you're a budding historian or prefer your culture fix with a modern flavor, Carmel has it all. Conner Prairie, an indoor/outdoor museum and the first Smithsonian Institute affiliate in Indiana, counts a recreated 19th-century village, a Lenape Indian camp, and a fabulous 4-storey tree-top outpost among its many family-friendly attractions. Traveling without kids? While Conner Prairie is certainly not just for little people, you might be more tempted by a night at the city's Center for the Performing Arts where venues such as the Palladium and the Studio Theater serve up song, dance, and almost everything in between.

    Enjoy Carmel at its best in summer

    Carmel is at its most animated over the summer when hot sunny days bring with them scores of travelers keen to experience the city's charming vibe. Temperatures in July and August, however, can easily reach 90 and beyond. Fall can be more comfortable, although if you don't mind a bit of snow, consider booking a Carmel vacation rental over the holiday season when events such as the Christkindlmarkt and Holiday on the Square provide plenty of reasons to throw on your cold weather garb. With transitional weather and the threat of thunderstorms, spring is considered the off season.

    Soak up the scenery in Carmel

    Nature lovers can get their fix at a variety of scenic spots in the city. The Monon Trail, a former railroad connecting Indianapolis and Chicago, now serves as a glorious backdrop for hiking, biking, and rollerblading, while the 90-acre Cool Creek Park Nature Center offers a chance to take a look at local wildlife. The city's Central Park features a fishing lagoon and natural wetlands while the Kawachinagano Japanese Garden offers a tranquil setting for walks and picnics. Don't rule out a beach day, either! The small sandy beach at Eagle Creek Park lies within a 30-minute drive of many rentals.
