Map and Driving Directions

Silicon Insider is located in Pacific Grove, California, on the scenic coastline of Monterey Bay between Carmel, Pebble Beach, and Monterey. We're about 60 minutes south of San Jose and Silicon Valley. Pacific Grove was named the Most Romantic Town in America by Life magazine, and is often called "America's Last Hometown" on account of its quaint, small-town atmosphere. Pacific Grove boasts more Victorian houses per capita than any other place in the United States. In the autumn months it becomes "Butterfly Town USA" as thousands of colorful Monarch butterflies spend the winter months in the local trees.
