A sparsely populated area with stunning views, Big Sur attracts artists and tourists traveling California’s scenic Highway 1.
Explore Big Sur's surroundings by going to Pacific Grove (Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard & Asilomar State Beach) and Elephant Seal Rookery (in San Simeon). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, stroll through Pfeiffer State Beach, take in the dramatic scenery at McWay Falls, and immerse yourself in nature at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.
