Big Sur

Big Sur is a legend completely worthy of its status. The incredible beauty of the Californian coastline has been an inspiration to artists and writers for decades and continues to do so still. The region feels totally removed from the stress of the modern world, and every view is as pretty as a painting. The air smells clean and fresh unlike anywhere else in the world.

PCH or the Pacific Coast Highway is one of the world’s most beautiful routes for a road trip. The highway snakes along California’s coastline, offering wonderful views all along the way. At its best the PCH is definitely in the Big Sur region. Located between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this thrilling route is also one of the most famous road trip routes in the world. Another legend completely worthy of its status.

Big Sur is much more than a rocky coastline. Head inland and you’ll find historic redwoods, with many trees older than the country they’re in. The region has several state parks with wonderful hiking routes. Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is a personal favorite. Expect to see babbling brooks with fresh water, wild deer running in the forests and dolphins frolicking under waterfalls on the coast.
