If you are into concert or want to just walk around great architecture, this is the place to be in Carmel. Since the time center of performing arts has opened, they brought many great musicians. I have been here a few times.

Exceptional venue with multiple stages. I have attended for Jazz, Symphony and acoustic performances. Coat check could be more convenient but seating is good, parking is easy and the staff is friendly.
