Drove from Carmel to Big Sur and back this past weekend. Huge number of cars. However, the views are so stunning it was still worth it. Once the end of summer crowds peter out it will be back to it's old self. Big Sur is gorgeous and a great place to get out and take a walk amongst giant trees.... More

Rent a cool car and enjoy driving along Highway One! We had a great time! Be careful, but take the time to stop at the scenic vistas, take touristy photos, etc. It's well worth the hassle of getting here!

The pictures speak for themselves, the views are AMAZING!! We drove from Santa Barbara to San Francisco in 13 hours (only stopping for gas, a dozen or so photo opps and a sit down lunch) and really enjoyed the day, but here is the advice I would share: - If you want to do the same trip that we did,...

Just a remarkable way to see California. We started in San Fran and went to San Diego and it was one of the most beautiful ways to see the California coast line. Yes the roads were really scary I would not do it at night , there are no lights and no gas stations or civilization for 100's of miles... More

Something I really wanted to do, and finally got the chance to, was driving along highway one on a sunny day. Somehow we got lucky and started in San Francisco during the golden hour - the light photographers love as it gives everything this golden hue. Starting from Half moon bay, you get wonderful scenes of the coast line. Don't... More

Don't fly between LA and Frisco, rent a car or a motorcycle! Once you get to Ventura and head north it is pure pleasure. The road is exellent and the views are amazing! If you have the time, stop over in Big Sur!

My family took our Toyota Highlander for a treat on Monday June 30th and drove on highway 1 from Santa Maria to Castroville and it was spectacular! The scenery was amazing. My whole family loved it. We watched a bunch of big sea lions somewhere along the route that were resting right off the highway on the beach. You won't... More

I drove all the way from San Francisco to south LA and it took me 15 hours, obviously with several stops and brakes. Generally it is a very nice route but I was seeing some more spectacular in Europe. Nevertheless, I didn't regret that I chose this road for my trip back to LA, but honestly I had expected more,...
