Pacific Grove, or as locals say "P.G." offers breathtaking views, sandy beaches, beautiful victorian homes, and a multitude of recreational activities. Pacific Grove is home to the oldest-continuous operating lighthouse on the West Coast. Known for its friendly community, picturesque neighborhoods, and the Pacific Grove Unified School District, Pacific Grove is a beautiful place locals love calling home.
Pacific Grove is nicknamed "Butterfly Town, U.S.A." because of it's historic Monarch butterfly habitat sanctuary which was created for the migration of Monarch Butterflies to the town. The citizens of Pacific Grove voted for an additional tax to create the Monarch Grove Sanctuary to protect the butterflies. The sanctuary is maintained by devoted community volunteers.
Pacific Grove is home to iconic Lovers Point. This stunning landscaped community park and beach is popular among locals and tourists. A day at Lovers Point offers endless activities. Fishing, swimming, beach volleyball, a children's swimming pool, restaurant, snack bar, and a large lawn area for BBQ's and picnics.
Pacific Grove has an annual event in July, The "Feast of Lanterns." Rich with history, this event has been a Pacific Grove tradition for more than 100 years. The Feast of Lanterns began as the closing ceremonies to the Chautauqua Assembly in 1905 and has developed into a beautiful multi-cultural community and educational event. Festivities include lighted lanterns throughout the city, a boat parade across the bay, and fireworks over the ocean.
The serene Asilomar Conference Grounds are known as Monterey Peninsula's "Refuge by the Sea." Asilomar is a California State Park dating back to 1913. The conference grounds originated as a YWCA Leadership Camp. The 107 acres are made up of historic architecture which frames the stunning Asilomar State Beach. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the historic architecture was created beginning in the early 1900's by Julia Morgan. Seven additional structures were created by John Carl Warnecke (best known for John F. Kennedy's gravesite memorial). The Conference Grounds offer a cozy retreat with overnight lodging. Great care is taken to protect Asilomar's vast history and beauty.
