Asilomar – California’s Golden Parks (119)
Huell travels to the city of Pacific Grove located on the Monterey Peninsula to visit Asilomar. Meaning “a refuge by the sea,” Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds sits on 107 breathtaking acres. The conference grounds began in 1913 as a camp and conference site for the YWCA, and its historic buildings were designed by the California architect Julia Morgan, who also designed Hearst Castle. Today, among other activities, the facility is home to the California State Parks training facility.
