Pacific Grove is a coastal city in Monterey County, California in the United States. On the 19th (Sat), get a tailor-made plan with Monterey Bay Kayaks, then learn about winemaking at Pierce Ranch Vineyards Tasting Room, and then get to know the fascinating history of Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard. Here are some ideas for day two: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Monterey Bay Aquarium, cruise along 17-Mile Drive, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Asilomar State Beach.

For where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Pacific Grove trip planner.

San Jose to Pacific Grove is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of train and bus.
