Located right next to Monterey on the scenic Central Coast of California, Pacific Grove is perfect for a relaxed getaway. 

With a coastline that is stunning no matter the season, and a charming downtown with heritage homes, Pacific Grove offers lots of things to do. 

The beach at Lovers Point Park is one of the prettiest on the Monterey coast. Swim, surf, launch a kayak, climb rocks, or just relax.

Walk the scenic (and easy) Asilomar coastal trail for expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, and wildflowers in season. 

The rocky coastline of Pacific Grove offers excellent tidepooling. If you enjoy landscape photography, you will love Oceanview Boulevard and Sunset Drive.

Point Pinos Lighthouse is historic and photogenic. You can tour the interior when it's open. 

In downtown Pacific Grove, admire the many murals and tour the heritage homes, some that were built before 1926.  

Pacific Grove is also very close to Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur, should you wish to explore more of the Monterey coast.
