A city in Indiana just north of Indianapolis that everyone hates. People who live there hate all the stereotyping, and people who don't live there insult them as much as possible and know that they're actually just snobby rich kids. Most Carmel High School attendees are either super rich, rich, or not that rich at all. There is no medium. The only other High School in Carmel is the ridiculously small and lame University High School. Everyone who goes there is either on a minority scholarship or is ridiculously rich.

If you ask anyone who lives somewhere else, say, Zionsville or Westfield, people in Carmel are rich, stuck up snobs who like to flaunt their wealth. A lot of them are, and they know it. Most aren't really all that rich, but they like to think so because they live in Carmel. Other people who live there are probably pretty rich, but they most likely aren't all that stuck up and snobby.

Everyone outside of Carmel loves to hate on Carmel because of their cocky football team and their snobby residents. When people enter Carmel they often make jokes such as, "Hey, I think I need to upgrade to the new iPhone and buy a car that looks much more expensive than it really is."

In all fairness, people either like or hate Carmel. To be honest, a lot of the rich people there aren't all that bad, even a decent amount of University kids, but some of them are stereotypical snobby Carmel kids that makes you proud you don't live there.
"Oh god yes, we get to play Carmel's football team. I can't wait to see that idiotic stuck up fan base so we can laugh at them behind their backs."

"Look at that kid, he's obviously from Carmel, he has a Mercedes and a $5000 watch."

"I wish people would stop associating me with all those other idiots in Carmel." "Yeah, well just look at your house, it's at least $2 million."

A city in Indiana where a bunch of rich people live. Filled with Paris Hilton wannabes who drive huge cars and listen to rap music when they clearly shouldn't.
Every single teenage girl in Carmel has a pink RAZR. Every single one.

A city in Indiana. Many people think all the people who live in Carmel are rich brats. However, there are only a couple of rich neighborhoods and the rest are modest sized. People need to stop thinking that all "Carmelites" are rich brats. There are rich brats in Carmel, but there are rich brats everywhere. Please, don't stereotype us :)
Person 1: "Ugh that person is so Carmel!"
Person 2: "You know, all Carmel people aren't rich"
Person 1: "Whatever"

A name associated with talented pretty girls. She is very smiley and doesn't know how cute and beautiful she is. She brightens your day. Carmel is very smart and would be fit to be a model, actress, journalist, or author. Whoever is friends with her or likes her is very lucky because they picked the right person to admire. It's a very unique name associated with unique girls.
What's her name?
Carmel
Wow, she's pretty
Ikr!

Carmel, CA is a small town located on the southern tip of the Monterey Peninsula. 90% of the population are tourists; the rest are known fondly as newly weds and nearly deads. Any non-tourist seen below the age of 60 in Carmel (aka, the city employees) actually live in Monterey, Seaside, or Salinas: this is due to the fact that even in the worst economy, a 1-bedroom, 1-bath shack can sell for more than $3 million.

Carmel is most famous for its beach, which is one of the few left in California that allows unleashed dogs. This results in a large number of territorial, dog-obsessed old ladies walking the beach at all hours of the day, screaming at tourists/adolescents who use the beach for non-dog related purposes.

Carmel is also known for its shopping. Its main street, Ocean Ave, is packed full with art galleries and jewelery shops: the only shops capable of supporting the city's expensive rent. Nobody who lives in Carmel can afford to shop there, instead going to Monterey or Seaside for those things that Carmel lacks, such as food or clothing.

Carmel houses a number of special events that always attract a fair amount of tourism. The Bach Festival celebrates great musicianship and is held at the gorgeous arts theater, the Sunset Center. In July, rich men come from all parts of the world bringing their never-driven, hourly waxed, and extremely loud antiquated cars for Carmel's car show and race, the Tour de Elegance. Carmel's Forest Theatre runs performances throughout the year, and has remarkably excellent shows, considering the Monterey Bay's small population.

With all this in mind, it is surprising to think that Carmel has such things like a city council, church, school, local newspaper, and local radio station (AM 1416, KRML). Clint Eastwood was once the mayor of Carmel-by-the-sea, giving Carmel's undeserved reputation of being packed with Hollywood celebrities. More notable figures in Carmel history include San Junipero and Bill Bates, who draws cartoons of Carmel but can't afford to live there.

Carmel has been compared to paradise, and given names such as "the jewel of California," just like all the other expensive, boring, beach towns in California.
Taken from real Carmel conversations:
Tourist: Which way's the beach?
Local: Up this very steep hill.

Beach walker 1: How dare you bring a pit bull down to the beach?!
Beach walker 2: She's a boxer!
Beach walker 1: I won't stand for any aggressiveness down here, do you hear me?
Beach walker 2: You're a dog-nazi!

Tourist: How much is the lemonade?
Seller: That'll be six dollars.
Tourist: That's outrageous! Do you take 100 dollar bills?

Tourist: Do you live here?
Local: Yes, ma'am.
Tourist: Oh, and you're a student, at the local library, with a backpack and everything! How cute! Can I take your picture?
