Notes from the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce web site Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce
"Pacific Grove has been called “Butterfly Town U.S.A.,” “The Most Romantic City in the U.S.,” “A Dreamy California Destination, ” as well as an idyllic place to get married, to honeymoon or to just hang out. Some of it is self-proclaimed, some the acclaim of people who have actually visited Pacific Grove.
Most recently, VIA magazine (an American Automobile Association publication) dubbed Pacific Grove as the “Best Seaside Sanctuary.”
You will find Pacific Grove on the very tip of the scenic, tree-shrouded Monterey Peninsula with a rocky coastline and an ambience of charm, grace and beauty.
Founded in the 1870s as a Methodist summer retreat, Pacific Grove still bears the look and feel of yesteryear. The original retreat area remains with homes dating back to the late1800s and early 1900s. Each of the vintage homes – and the newer ones as well – display their individuality. In street after street around town, the homes differ widely in size and architectural style. The downtown looks more at home at the turn of the last century than it does at the start of the new millennium."
