      Pacific Grove, California: Living the Beach Dream

      I retired here to Pacific Grove, California 7 years ago and I love it here. This place offers me everything that I need to enjoy by leisurely days. The neighborhoods are quiet and the people are friendly.

      Living in Pacific Grove, California gives me the chance to live out my dream of living in a beach side community. The best areas in Pacific Grove, California are without a doubt the views of the Pacific Ocean. There is always a place in the sand open.

      The community comes together throughout the year. Multiple events are held year-round in Pacific Grove. I absolutely love the Parade of Lights event. The local Farmers Market offers fresh produce year-round and also allows local schools and bands to perform small acts there throughout the year.

      Pacific Grove offers and provides everything that I need. The crime is low and the entertainment value is high. Everyone helps everyone here and there of course is the luxury of living so very close to the beach that you can smell the salt-water on a daily basis.
