When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Pacific Grove Acres neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Pacific Grove Acres is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Dutch ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dutch ancestry.
Pacific Grove Acres is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 4.0% of employed workers living in the
Pacific Grove Acres neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
