The small city of Grover Beach in San Luis Obispo County, California, covers just 2.25 square miles. But it occupies one of the most beautiful seaside locations on the west coast. Visitors come to discount hotels in Grover Beach for the gorgeous climate, the drive on beach, and the many recreational activities. In and around Grover Beach you can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, clamming, dune hiking, cycling, golfing, horseback riding, off-road vehicle riding, and even wine tasting. Every August the community holds the Annual Dune Run, starting at Ramona Garden Park. Summer is also the time for the Stone Soup Music Faire, a multi-cultural event that includes music, food, arts and crafts, a salsa contest, pony rides, and a petting zoo. Every Sunday throughout the summer you can enjoy the Farmers’ Market, which also hosts the Sizzlin’ Summer Concert Series.
Nature lovers visiting budget hotels in Grover Beach from November through February will want to go to Pismo State Beach. There they will see the largest wintering colony of Monarch butterflies in the United States. In a grove of eucalyptus trees called Butterfly Grove, they will see thousands of the colorful insects clinging to the trees. The beach and sand dunes here attract over a million visitors a year. Many arrive through the new building that is simply called “The Train Station”, but which is in fact a multimodal transportation facility. It is just a short walk from the beach.
