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.
Highway One, Big Sur....Highway One is one of the most scenic drives in the world. I drove down it one summer vacation, it was memorable and beautiful. However it was one the scariest drives I have ever drove on because I am afraid of heights and as my hands gripped the wheel very tight I safely made from Monterrey to Pismo Beach. I however wish I had taken more pictures.
