California

24 Hours in Big Sur

Big Sur is a dose of paradise. On a trip to San Francisco with one of my girlfriends two years ago, we decided to spend a day driving down the California coast. One day is not nearly enough time in Big Sur, and spending a long weekend driving down the coast and hiking trails is on my list of things to do someday.

Since we only had one day, we decided to make the most of it. We left San Francisco early in the morning and drove down Highway 1 as the fog started to lift off the bluffs.

A rugged stretch of California coastline, Big Sur is a magical place. Home to hikes that’ll take your breath away, it’s quite the experience.

Rolling mountains and ocean bluffs- driving Highway 1 with your windows down is the epitome of awe-inspiring.

Pro-tip: If you’re going to drive through Big Sur, plan your route and stops ahead of time. Cell service is scare throughout Highway 1.
