Map from Michelin Guide California.

Pacific Grove was founded in 1875 by Methodists, who liked a resort near the ocean. But not much was allowed what is nowadays usually in sea resorts. Drinking alcohol,dancing, reading sunday papers. Until 1969 alcohol was illegal here.
It is still a quiet, small town with beautiful Victorian houses. A few miles from Monterey and southward the scenic 17-mile Drive brings you to Carmel.
The Point Pinos Lighthouse is the oldest operating lighthouse on the Pacific coast.

In my travelogues I tell you about the 17-mile Drive and Point Lobos State Reserve.
