VISIT THE MONARCH BUTTERFLY SANCTUARY
Starting around October, the Monarch Butterfly starts to show up in Pacific Grove. They can come as far away as Canada and Mexico. The present sanctuary gets an average of 25,000 Monarch Butterflies in the season, which runs from late Autumn till Spring. It is worth going to see them in the trees and flying around when the sun is out. Located off Lighthouse Ave from town, head toward Point Pinos and turn left at Ridge Road, pass the Butterfly Grove Inn and park on the street. Look for the easement entrance to the sanctuary.
