With arms wide open, take a deep breath, relax, and rejuvenate. Welcome to Pacific Grove! Did you know our quaint city of Pacific Grove has more public open space per citizen than any other city in California? Of the five miles of coastline, including the Monterey Bay Sanctuary and the Pacific Ocean, there are only four private lots with homes, plus the Hopkins Marine Labs of Stanford University… with all the rest available to the public. Our city’s golf course, with green fees less than $45, gives you the opportunity to “look for whales, while making birdies.” Be sure to stroll along the wooden walkway of the dunes at Asilomar State Beach, and hike through the twenty acre pine forest of Asilomar State Park, the winter resting home of the Monarch butterflies. In the city’s two and a half acre Butterfly Sanctuary, you will find Monarchs hanging in long strings from the trees during their stay over. There are more parks, including Rip Van Winkle, Berwick, and Lover’s Point. Bring a picnic, and sunscreen. It’s October. Summer has arrived… cool mornings, sunny, and clear, and around 75 degrees. Pacific Grove is a great place to live, and a fabulous place to visit.
