Romantic Pacific Grove Weekend



Description:

October through February is monarch butterfly time in Pacific Grove. "PG" is a lot quieter than Carmel or Monterey, and yet close to everything. It's less than 1 mile to the Aquarium and Cannery Row from here, and only a short drive to the beaches. This is a central, moderately-priced location for access to the entire coastal area. You can do the crowded tourist things on Cannery Row, including the must-see Monterey Aquarium, and yet spend the next day discovering the more intimate treasures of Pacific Grove. For a little extra romance, check out what Romantic Room Designs (www.romanticroomdesigns.com) can do for you.

Day 1 - Monterey


Reserve an Attic Suite at the Centrella Inn on the top floor for view and seclusion. Check in as early as possible, so you can walk to the Aquarium and Cannery Row. Give yourself plenty of time for the Aquarium. As a break from the endless shopping opps on Cannery Row, try some of Monterey Bay's lovely wines at A Taste of Monterey. In the evening, what better activity than to walk to Lover's Point and dine overlooking the ocean?

Day 3 - Pebble Beach


Today's the day for a leisurely drive through the forests of the justly-famous 17-Mile Drive. When you pay your fee at the Pacific Grove Gate, make sure to take one of the detailed maps. There are many potential stops, and all of them lovely. Take your time, and get out to take a look frequently. You'll definitely want to stop at Pebble Beach Lodge to see what all the fuss is about, and to pick up a picnic lunch at Pebble Beach Market next to the Lodge. Thus refreshed and fortified, you're ready for the trip home
