The Pacific Coast Highway
State Route 1
A trilling 1,000-mile route starting at California’s northern border with Oregon to its southern boundary with Mexico, offers some of the most exceptional coastal panoramic view.
PCH runs through gorgeously isolated terrain, and frequent laybys and vista points provide ample opportunity to soak up the coast’s rare and astounding natural beauty. You can head south from L.A. to San Diego or take the traditionalist’s route north to San Francisco and even beyond, past the 19th-century fishing-town-turned-artists-colony of Mendocino.
