Pacific Grove, California

I left my heart in San Francisco, just like the song says.

But I also left pieces of it spread along California in dreamy coastal cities like Carmel, Monterey or Pacific Grove.

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. 

It was founded in the 1870s as a Methodist summer retreat. 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. Among the historic buildings in Pacific Grove are stately Victorian mansions that have been converted into bed and breakfast inns.

Among its visitors are brightly colored orange-and-black Monarch butterflies, who overwinter in Pacific Grove after traveling up to 2,000 miles, arriving by the thousands starting in October, peaking around Christmas and departing by March.
