We loved Pacific Grove and wished we would have stayed there over Carmel.People were friendlier and you were right on the water. Small quaint town with lots of restaurant options and short drive to Monterrey and Carmel.

It is a pleasant place to walk about and we had whales cruising right off the point and seabirds feasting on some small fish entering Monterey Bay, real Hitchcock material.

It WAS great. Go in either direction. Nothing but craggy oceanfront hiking with tidal pools, small bays, and inviting water and views in any direction except inland. Not to be missed.

Great drive right next to ever changing coastline. Slow driving but also good to walk. Will take you to the Aquarium.

Title says it all: Park at any of the many areas, get out, look around, walk on the beach, get your feet wet in the Pacific, walk a mile up the trail and back. It's good for the soul. If you just get out, look around for five minutes and climb back in to drive on, you done missed it!

Its a quiet town but at night, not the best for walking the street. The innkeeper said that's the downside of the town, that its not the best lit. The town is quaint, and can be walked to most places (especially during the daytime). Down by the beach you can watch the Harbor Seals sunbathe, and along the coast there's... More
