Big Sur and California's Central Coast- itinerary


I had heard so much about Big Sur before I went and was skeptical of its ability to live up to the hype. I am a believer now. "Wow" will be a recurring word on this drive. Highway 1 from Los Angeles airport (LAX) to San Francisco takes you through some cool towns, great wine country, and the jaw-dropping scenery of Highway 1 through Big Sur. There is so much to do on this trip- hiking, beaches, aquariums, amusement parks, famous golf courses, and of course, wineries. Everyone will find something that is their favorite.
