Ahhh,,, beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea in California. Home of the well know Pebbles Beach Golf Club. City that boasts Clint Eastwood as its former mayor. Vistas that take your breath away and something else….
“Put on your high heels baby, cause we are going out tonight” is not a song that applies to those living and visiting in Carmel! Carmel has an historic law that has never been banned that makes it illegal to wear high heels!
Who knew? Thankfully, I wore flip flops last time I was in Carmel. Imagine me telling my teens that mom was arrested for wearing high heels. They would say, “That sounds a little sketch!”
The good news for all you law breaking tourists and citizens of Carmel–apparently the law isn’t enforced. In fact, you can purchase a commemorative permit that allows you to wear the shoes.
Now that I know this, I just want to go so I can purchase the permit and strut my stilettos.
Forget the speeding tickets to raise revenue! Legislators, make a law regarding wardrobe malfunction. It’s much more fun!
