While the temperature might not drop too much (it’s always temperate here at the Olympia Lodge), fall is here. Here are a few of the can’t-miss fall activities to do in Pacific Grove and Monterey.

Fall Foliage Along the 17-Mile Drive

Beach? Check.

Mountains? Check.

Rich autumn browns and marigold leaves? Check.

Take a coastal cruise from Pebble Beach down the coast to our neighbor, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and enjoy stunning natural views.

Butterfly Sanctuary

People from all over make their way to Pacific Grove to visit out Butterfly Sanctuary. And fall is the time. Apart from our Annual Butterfly Parade, you can enjoy a guided tour through monarch-boughed trees.

Wine & Food Festival

The Pacific Grove City Council celebrates the best chefs  and regional wine makers with its annual Wine and Food Festival (and there are a lot to choose from). Entry gets you a carefully curated wine and food pairing sampling as you move from one delectable spot to the next– all the while you enjoy live entertainment.

A Picnic

If your idea of fall activities is something simple like a seaside picnic, you’re in luck! Check out these top picnic spots for the right fit for you.

Whatever you do this fall, you’re sure to have a great time. Now, as always, if you have any questions, we’d be happy to chat!
