Big Sur is worth spending a few daysThe Pacific coastline and old-growth forests are two of California's biggest scenic highlights – and these two natural wonders converge nicely at one of the state's most famous tourist attractions: Big Sur.
Located about 150 miles south of San Francisco, this part of the California coast offers non-stop amazement for travelers willing to drive the curvy Scenic Highway 1 the 90 miles of coastline that today encompass the Big Sur scenic recreation area. Visitors see new panoramas around every curve – pristine beaches, craggy mountain ledges, fascinating rock formations amid swirling, sometimes angry coastal waters and, of course, the giant redwood trees that swallow up tiny vacationers posing for their vacation photographs.
