Pacific Grove – Lovers Point Walk, A Local Treasure [Video]

~Happy New Year!~

Sending good wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year! As you chase new heights in 2022, don’t forget to set some time aside for rest, relaxation and family!
Today we spent the afternoon on one of our favorite walks in Monterey Bay; We wanted to start the new year right by being inspired by strolling Pacific Grove, starting at Lovers Point (pretty romantic name, right?)
Here’s the route we walked with HoHo (she kept up mostly, while I struggled climbing the rocks at Lovers Point Park!) 🤪

Explore the world class walk that Pacific Grove’s Lovers Point Park inspires to tourists and locals!
Pacific Grove is a quaint little seaside community in Monterey Bay. Lovers Point is the perfect destination with rocky outcroppings for children, young and old to climb and explore. See the tide pools, ground squirrels, seagulls, humming birds, otters, sail boats and tours have fun climbing the rocks and enjoy the views!
After exploring Lovers Point Park, walk west on Ocean View Blvd, go south on Asilomar Ave and east on Lighthouse Ave Sights you’ll see on this walk…
  • Point Pinos Lighthouse – 
  • Lucy’s On The Lighthouse –
    • Outdoor, casual seating
    • Pet Friendly, several well behaved doggos sitting in their patios
    • Serving Illy’s espresso
    • Order their delicious crispy brussels sprout dish drizzled with balsamic reduction, tasty!
