Road trips
Pacific Coast Highway rated among 12 best
The Pacific Coast Highway, running from California 1 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."
