I've done the PCH probably 8 times in different stages. The most popular is San Francisco to L.A. It must be one of the most scenic highways in the United States but in summer it can be very slow as it's single lane on each side. In places it's all curves. If you are prone to motion sickness you could be in trouble as you are continually bearing left and right, slowing down and speeding up. When we went through May 15/16 the price of gas in L.A. was $3.95 but on the PCH around Big Sur it was $6.76. Make sure you fill up before you hit this section. It's really a great ride and it's the one way to visit the Hearst Castle and Seal Beach. Hope this was helpful.
