Check Off Your Holiday Shopping 

Pacific Grove is peppered with charming stores, boutiques and art galleries with unique gifts to please everyone on your list.

And if you don’t find exactly what you’re looking for, take a short yet scenic drive to historic Cannery Row, where you can find gifts for foodies, golfers and book lovers alike! 

Secret Tip: Shhh! Don’t tell anyone about this all-about-Christmas store in Carmel called Kris Kringle! This is a must visit, charming little shop for anyone who loves decorations, trinkets and treasures for a special holiday season.

Wine and Dine

Enjoy someone else making your dinner for a change at one of Pacific Grove’s delicious eateries. Whether you’re looking for something more casual or want the white table cloth experience, there are more options than meal times! 

Brunchers will have their choice from any of these scrumptious places, while those looking for dinner with a view can have their cake and eat it too. 


Get in the Spirit: Holiday Events

You’re sure to get in the spirit thanks to these annual holiday events! On November 28th this year, you can celebrate the Pacific Grove Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony as the town officially rings in the festive season!

On December 1st, you can enjoy a marching band, holiday floats, dance teams and equestrian groups as the annual Pacific Grove Holiday Parade of Lights takes over the town.

And if you’re looking for something a bit more active, pull on your running shoes for the Jingle Bell Run on December 10th! 

Whatever your plans, you’re sure to have a relaxing holiday weekend in Pacific Grove.
