The fields and horizon choices are very pretty and worth going off the highway (directions and details below)! It's so spectacular, we saw a wedding party (who included sunflowers in their bouquets) pull up for a photo shoot. You will need to pull off of...More

This might have been rated higher but I had just finished trips from the PCH and the 101 and you can’ really beat that. It was okay, there were no major obstacles, but it is just a road and one we needed to take.

Along with the 99 this road was the original western border to border road. Starts out at the Mexican border and terminates at the Canadian border. Most of the road in SoCal is overlaid with the I-15. There are older portions that are still drivable...More
