big sur california

Big Sur is by far one of the most iconic places in Coastal California — which is quite a stretch of beach and cliffs.  Just south of Monterey and San Francisco, Big Sur spans 71 miles of State Route 1, often seen in movies, and some of the best tv. A super sweet spot for camping, and getting off grid, Big Sur is one of the most magical places in the US — listed in many top places to visit.  Be prepared to get a little backed up on Route 1 – which can often be a standstill for up to 20 miles.
