Road Trip: California's Pacific Coast Highway The route starts in historic Monterey, visits the art colony of Carmel, and threads through Big Sur, where mountains plunge into the Pacific. Farther south, the landscape mellows to oak-studded hills as the road passes Hearst Castle on its way to Morro Bay. In places, the road has narrow shoulders and sharp drop-offs, so stay alert.
8 must-see places on the Pacific Coast Highway. Throw in some time with Cali family and you have the perfect California road trip! I would absolutely looooove to do this next Summer before college! This is my dream for the year!
