WELCOME TO PACIFIC GROVE

Widely known for the annual migration of velvet-winged orange and black Monarch butterflies and fluorescent displays of seaside plant life, particularly along the walking/biking trail that borders the rocky coast with beautiful views out across Monterey Bay. Hailed locally as “the last hometown” this peaceful community of families and vacationers offers vintage Victorian homes and cottages among its diverse and distinctive oceanside and bay view residential areas.

An insider's guide to Pacific Grove that shares where to eat, get coffee, shop, get outside for a walk, visit a museum or go for a surf.
