Called “the last hometown” by its doting residents, Pacific Grove, with its preponderance of Victorian architecture, is a friendly seaside community with considerable charm. Outstanding one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants, attractions such as the Museum of Natural History and a stunning walking and bike path along the Monterey Bay, have made this quaint community a highly desirable vacation destination. It is famous for the bright pink carpet of flowering ice plant blanketing the rocky shoreline in May and as a stop off point for tens of thousands of migrating Monarch butterflies in the fall. The Monterey Bay Aquarium straddles the boundary between Pacific Grove and Monterey, anchoring Monterey's famed Cannery Row.
