Tour California’s Coast from Your Living Room

Put the top down, turn the radio up and hit the road for the quintessential California road trip along State Highway 1

As far as road trips go, California’s classic Highway 1 has it all. It is an excellent route for drivers, with twists, turns and narrow bends in the road. It offers beautiful, wind-swept vistas of the Pacific Ocean, and winds along a rugged coastline connecting megacities like San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as smaller spots on the map like Harmony, Cambria and Guadalupe.

In between are state forests, the green farm fields of the Central Valley, and many points of interest along the way that are worthy of a stopover.
