The pacific Coast Highway -or Route One- is designated as an All-American Road. This piece of information, combined with my love for bridges, made this route a must do for me.
The only way into the Big Sur coast is along the winding and breathtaking California Highway 1 aka The Pacific Coast Highway.
Monterey. Being a European, not all that interesting to visit but nevertheless a nice surrounding to take 5 from all that driving. It’s a lot of fun to have lunch while staring at the sea looking for sea lions and whales.
Driving further to Cambria, we soon crossed Bixby Bridge. One of the most photographed bridges in California due to its aesthetic design, graceful architecture and magnificent setting. We visited the bridge on a very foggy day but it still was overwhelming and it got me some nice pictures.
Once I crossed the Bixby Bridge I headed straight to Los Angeles with one overnight stop in Cambria. It was already end of season when I visited and the weather was bad so we did nothing special.
