For families looking for a small-town home, pretty yet unpretentious and full of warmth, quiet charm, rich history, and plenty to do for all ages, “America’s Last Home Town” is the place to be. Overlooking its stunningly beautiful coastline stand inviting houses and inns in the town’s iconic Victorian-style architecture.
Not far from the ocean is the old-fashioned downtown, with all its first-rate shops, restaurants, and parks, as well as the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie Library, popular with locals and visitors alike.
Other attractions include an outstanding city-owned golf course, the renowned Monarch Butterfly Grove (annual visiting place of the migrating beauties that give the town its nickname of Butterfly Town), the famed "purple carpet" (bright purple ice plant) that blooms in the spring), and a wide array of folksy annual parades, fairs, and festivities for children and adults alike to enjoy. Pacific Grove also features a great school district and walkability to town and beaches.
