“Breath Taking”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Another must do when in the area. Drive along the coast, scenic drive. The ocean and mountains are just beautiful! Another thing to try if you do not want to drive, take the train!

“Need a car”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Durning a good & clear weather this is a must to drive a long the ocean before one gets to S.B. & take Highway 1 or one of the streets that runs along the beach or along the cliff all the way to 20 miles noirth of S.B.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Worth taking the time to liesurely drive up and down the coast here. Great beaches, plenty of beautiful plants and flowers, lots of wildlife as far as birds and some sightings of animals in the water. Sparkling water in the sun.
