Pacific Coast Highway rated among 12 bestThe Pacific Coast Highway, running from California on up to the Canadian border, is rated as one of the Top 12 Roadtrips in the U.S., according to a list published by TopRetirements.com.
The roadtrips are rated on the basis of several factors, including: views of the water, breathtaking mountains, amazing natural features, beautiful foliage, historic houses and buildings and whether the route is fun to drive.
The Pacific Coast Highway -- PCH -- fills the bill, according to TopRetirements.com. As the website states:
"Just about anywhere from Santa Barbara to the Canadian border on this road will produce jaw-dropping scenery of the Pacific Ocean and coastal mountains. Although the Pacific Coast Highway has 123 official miles, Route 1 is much longer."
