Visit Grover Beach

Arroyo Grande Valley is about award-winning wines, an old-fashioned bandstand in the center of town and a swinging foot bridge over the creek. It's the year-round Mediterranean climate – 74 degrees feels so good.

Grover Beach is a community-oriented beach town offering diverse and affordable housing, a convenient Central Coast location, and plenty of opportunity to spread your wings.
