Top California Attractions

All California

Pacific North Coast Highway - Route 1 - Arguably the most beautiful drive in the country. Pacific Coast Highway is a gorgeous highway that runs along most of the coast of California. Driving down the coast of California provides amazing views of the Pacific Ocean with green rolling hills, cliffs exceeding 100 ft., and a wide variety of California trees and plants. This makes for a great camping trip. What Not to Miss:

  • Hearst Castle - Built by publisher William Randolph Hearst on a hill overlooking the coast. A palatial estate with Mediterranean Revival Architecture and collection of art - antique furniture, sculptures, paintings, mosaics and tapestries.
  • Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park - Take the Overlook Trail which follows the clifftops above the ocean and provides a breathtaking view of McWay Cove and a 80 foot waterfall.
  • Point Lobos State Reserve - Sea lions and sea otters abound around the small islands that you'll see from the coastal trails.
  • Muir Woods National Monument - Six miles of trails amongst some of the tallest trees in the world - the Redwoods.
  • Point Reyes National Seashore - This stretches 70 miles around the Point Reyes Peninsula and offers great hiking, biking and camping. Wildlife far outnumbers people, with bobcats, elk, mountain lions and deer. Gray whales or orcas can be spotted offshore. There are beaches, forests and hills to explore and wildflower and native flora galore.
