1. Re: Big Sur

Big Sur refers to an approx. 90 mile stretch of coastal area in northern/central Calif.; the boundaries are normally just so. of Carmel down the coast to San Simeon, which is home to the fabulous Hearst Castle (www.hearstcastle.com) a huge estate built during the 1920’s thru 1940’s, which is open to the public for tours. The Big Sur area is famous for its incredible natural beauty, sheer ocean cliffs, waterfalls, State Parks, redwood forests, rugged mountains--and for Highway 1, the twisting, narrow road that can make the drive up and down this coast an extreme adventure in itself with sheer drops to the ocean on one side and the steep mountains on the other! Over the decades, the unmatched beauty of Big Sur has attracted many artists, writers, photographers, wealthy individuals seeking a secluded retreat--and vast numbers of travelers and tourists.
