Best Place to Get Married (2012)
Ocean View Boulevard and 17th Street, Pacific Grove
It’s tough to beat this perennial winner with its dramatic Bay views, sandy beaches, rocky outcrops and green lawn, particularly during our Indian summers or one of the freak 70-degree days in February. But it’s also fun for locals to laugh at the out-of-town brides who want to get married at the beach in the summer months and end up shivering, wet and cold while professing eternal love in June Gloom.
