On Tuesday, the City Council approved placing directional signs that would route motorists on Ocean View Boulevard up to Lighthouse Avenue so they could travel through “historic downtown Pacific Grove” on their way to the fabled drive.
The sign would have eastbound drivers hang a left at 17th Street, go up to Lighthouse and turn right, rather than simply go straight and follow Jewell or Pacific avenues to 17-Mile Drive.
Looks like the first plan to send them up Grand fizzled. And what happened here long ago that makes it so historic anyway?
But really. The Pebble Bound tourists are more likely to follow the shoreline to see the true beauty of P.G. What is better to see and stop to look at?
The coastline that is often called “The Poor Man’s 17 Mile Drive”
Or do the really want the Tourist Trappings like junkyard garbage,
. . and rusty yard decor.
What would you choose?
