Pacific Grove is a gem in the jewelry box that is the Monterey Bay area. Located directly opposite the bay from Santa Cruz, PG is a sleepy coastal town reminiscent of a bygone era. The turn of the century architecture and friendly faces about town make you feel as through you’ve suddenly been transported into an episode of Leave it to Beaver. In early October, Monarch butterfies migrate through the area, and a celebration is held in their honor. With a plethora of quintessentially quaint bed and breakfasts, scintillating ocean views from Lovers’ Point and a bevy of cafes, bookshops and boutiques, Pacific Grove is a must-see for travelers passing through California’s Central Coast.
