Did you know that Pacific Grove Part 2: Local Sites and Attractions

Beyond Pacific Grove’s unique and storied past, some of which Don shared in “Did you know that Pacific Grove …”, Pacific Grove has many precious local attractions—all walking distance from our front door—providing our guests a pleasurable visit to The Martine Inn and our local community.

Did you know that Pacific Grove:

  • Boasts one of the rare resting stops for monarch butterflies during their annual migration from Canada to Mexico hence Pacific Grove’s nickname, “Butterfly Town U.S.A.”
  • Shares the Monterey Bay Aquarium with Monterey along at David Avenue, our eastern town border.
  • Includes some of the finest tide pools on the west coast including The Great Tide Pool, located on the tip of the Peninsula.
  • Offers more open park space per capita than any city in California including several miles of unobstructed oceanfront land available for public use and the final mile of the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail which stretches for 18 miles, beginning in Castroville and ending in Pacific Grove.
