In the summer of 1997, Tracey Lande launched Destination Carmel, a destination management consultancy catering to the financial services and tech world. For over twenty years Destination Carmel provided luxury destination services to small and discerning groups. 

In the summer of 2020, Tracey began to rethink the concept of her company with the goal of supporting California's local trades, artists, and craftspeople. Destination Carmel re-emerged as both a brand and an idea - an idea that brings to life the unique experience of living on the California Coast:

"For some, it's a lifestyle. For others, it's just life. For us, Destination Carmel is a celebration of the land, the heritage, and the spirit of the California Coast."

Destination Carmel offers small-batch luxury goods and experiences that feature the casually elegant "spirit of place" that is the California Coast.
