Thousands Of Monarch Butterflies Overwinter At The Pacific Grove Sanctuary In Northern California

It’s that time of year again! Starting in November, thousands of beautiful monarch butterflies make the amazing journey south for the winter. They stop at several sites along California’s Central Coast, but Pacific Grove’s Monarch Sanctuary is generally considered the best place to see these beauties firsthand. If you’re looking for a fun (and colorful) outing this winter, plan a trip to this butterfly sanctuary while they’re still here.
