Another attraction in Pacific Grove is the free alternative to the gorgeous but pricey 17-Mile Drive, which most guidebooks list as a must-see. Take the four-mile drive along Ocean View Beach in Pacific Grove, right next to
Asilomar Conference Center. Along the way are beautiful Victorian homes, a terrific view of the ocean, tidepools, and the 1855 Point Piños Lighthouse.

Other sights in Pacific Grove include the Museum of Natural History, the
American Tin Cannery, Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station (adjacent to the Boat Works, a major oceanic research institute), and the Old Bath House Restaurant at Lover's Point.

A great
driving tour website concerns John Steinbeck and his characters in Pacific Grove.
