You'll be on Highway 101, a multi lane highway through rolling hills, small towns and farms and ranches.
Once you connect with Highway 1 in San Luis Obispo, you'll enjoy multi lane driving until you reach Cayucos just north of Morro Bay and then it narrows to a 2 lane highway. The highway up to San Simeon is still an easy drive. The highway starts to get a little curvy just north of Hearst Castle, but the REALLY twisty, curvy part lies 14 miles ahead when the road rises dramatically above the Pacific Ocean and you encounter the first of many tight hairpin turns. There are several turn outs you can take advantage of if the drive becomes overwhelming and you feel the need to stop to compose yourself. It's also good for allowing faster traffic to go around you or to just take in the beautiful views spread out before you.Edited: 11:12 am, February 17, 2012
