Asilomar Conference Grounds
Travel Blogs from Pacific Grove
Well drove south from san fran, highway one, coastline , lots of bays and silver sands, passed harvest of the advocados and lettuce fields for miles.............monterey wharf looked similar to fishermans warfe and the cannery, all too comercialised for me.........so off to Asilomar State Beach where we were booked for 2 nights.............. it was …
Hi CRLA Staff, This is the best way I could get the pictures that I took on the web. If you see too many photos of yours truly, that's good, that means I tried to mingle and connect with as many of you as I could during the conference.
... traveled on, and crowded as it was Presidents Day. We had great difficulty parking the rig as two people had parked trucks in awkward places and they were nowhere to be seen. So we had lots of maneuvering to do, and after a big drive, it's not ideal! We went to see Philomena starring Judy Dench...just excellent! We walked all around the town and the beaches, so we got a good feel of the place. We continued to travel north on ...
... San Diego. There are plenty of kids playing about in it so they are a lot braver than us. A little stroll on the beach and we get back on the road. We head to Santa Cruz but stop at various points along the coast to take pictures and take in the amazing views.
Santa Cruz is beautiful as we drive in. The houses and shopping areas look really nice and somewhere great to live. We want to get to the Santa Cruz ...
... back to Veterans Memorial Park and got things loaded up.
Stopped at Troias Market in downtown Monterey and got a few supplies. This is one of those small shops you are surprised to see what a variety of products they have for sale.
Hopped on the 101 and headed back to the crowded SF Bay area. Took a break in Frontera for groceries and gas, then back on the freeway toward Mendocino.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAsilomar Conference Grounds Pacific Grove
Asilomar is a well kept secret.............we at first couldnt make out what it was as there seems to be some groups of folk on courses there...........but its is super special place to stay if you want to try something slightly diferent and refreshing reasonable price wise . the breakfast is in a huge lodge and well so large you have everyhting on offer.............the surrounds are architecturally intersesting and it worth spending an hour on the free audia tour and self guide yourself around the buidlings and see the place come alive all those years ago when it was first built. We are on a world tour and this was just 4 days at Asilomar but it will remains special in my memory as the best place we stayed along the californian coast , no not for luxury, but good value and much better value than a normal motel and for the same price.............im enlgish and i cant say how sweet this place is, with sweet natured people, and away from the hsutle and bustle of the real world.
