We drove the California 101 from the Oregon border to the 580 in San Rafael. This time down the redwood highway was marred by construction between Cresent City and Klamath. We were held up for 20 minutes though the announced wait times could be up to 2 hours. But what a place to be stuck. Nothing but giant redwoods surrounding you in which to marvel at. There was one other minor delay north of Leggett but was only about 10 minutes in length. This drive is different than the 101 in Oregon. More trees, less ocean views than in Oregon. Doesn’t make it any less enjoyable, just different.

We hired a Dodge Challenger from national car rentals to drive from San Fransisco to LA. The best road trip ever. We stopped overnight at Carmel and Pismo Beach. It was fantastic. Would recommend any car and travel enthusiast to take this route

We were returning from a cruise to Mexico and drove highway 101 on our drive home to the San Francisco Bay Area. We had a good time. The first part has ocean views. Once we driive past Pismo Beach, its mostly an inland route. We had lunch in downtown Paso Robles. The Paso Robles area is a good place to also go wine tasting. The drive is pleasant and can easily be done in one day

Short drive on the 101 from the Oregon border to Arcata then across the 299. A beautiful drive through the redwoods and along the coast, with an overnight stop in Klamath.

One of the most breathtaking,beautiful drives I have ever taken. Started in Long Beach, Washington and drove to San Francisco. Some of the resturants along the way were great !!!! The Inn at Spanish Head, Lincoln City, Oregon had some nice clam chowder. Double D's Cafe in Gold Beach, Oregon had a great breakfast menu with wonderful food. Plenty of sights to see, all kinds of little shops to visit, tourist attractions all along the way. This is the kind of trip you should take your time with, so mant things to see and do. Next time I will plan ahead and set time to make more stops along the way to see and experience it all.
