You should get lucky as the butterflies do come in October, but they do not have a calendar so the time varies a bit.....d:o)

Here is my page on the Carmel/Monterey/Pebble Beach/Pacific Grove area with all the websites you need.

Pacific Grove is one of the neatest beach towns in California. You are going to be able to witness the arrival of the Monarch Butterflies, if the weather patterns hold true or what ever guides these beauties to the Pacific Grove site. I have a tip in my VT Pacific Grove pages regarding the location. Also the website for the butterflies (look to the top for "I am interested in: and click on "butterflies": [original VT link]

Yes, Santa Cruz and Pacific Grove are just two of the cities in California where the Monarch Butterfly roosts. The list of groves are found in the Pismo Beach Monarch Grove website:
