Pacific Coast Highway - America's Most Popular Roadtrip for a Reason


We have all driven Highway 1 whether you're driving through 5 Cities, or from Morro Bay to Ragged Point. The beauty of this coastal highway is its ability to keep you wondering what's up ahead; what scenic turn-out you can choose to pull off on next or which quaint town you'll find the best restaurants in. The Pacific Coast Highway runs right up against the Central Coast and runs right through some of San Luis Obispo County's cutest beach towns.

"Many a honeymoon has been spent, a book born and a virgin road trip consummated along the Pacific Coast Highway's wonderfully winding route.

And when it comes to mind-blowing scenery, quirky stop-offs and that wind-in-your-hair serendipity of wondering what the next bend in the road will bring, few routes deliver like this one.

Also known as California State Route 1, the PCH was built in 1934 and took 15 years to complete. It runs for nearly 550 miles in California, stretching along most of the state's coastline."
