City Escape: Big Sur
The ocean view drive from San Francisco to Big Sur is something to experience, at least once in a lifetime.
The amazing pictures you see online taken on Highway 1 are almost always from this short lenght of the road. Towards Los Angeles, there is not too much to see.
Nature is the main attraction of Big Sur. Besides a couple of inns, there is basically just a gas station, a grocery store and a restaurant in town.
If you are into high-end luxury lodging, try Post Ranch Inn. If you want something simpler, and truly singular, Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn is the place to be.
We chose the latter, because...
And to see the sunset of your life, Pfeiffer Beach.
