Highway 1 Road Trip

Routinely named one of the world’s best scenic drives, San Luis Obispo County’s 80-mile (128 kilometers) stretch of Highway 1 is all about the landscapes, from the majestic rocky shore off Ragged Point all the way down to the wild, windswept dunes of Oceano.

These views of the prime Pacific coastline are prized, loved and highly photographed by locals and visitors alike. An endless list of activities are available along Highway 1 in SLO CAL. Spot passing whales and dolphins from the shore or aboard a watching tour. Laugh at the seals and otters playing amongst the surf. Marvel at the arts and antiques around every corner inside of Hearst Castle. Learn to surf the waves or paddle through sea caves. No matter what you choose, adventure along the 'Pacific Coast Highway' in SLO CAL for the California road trip of a lifetime!

As you cruise Highway 1 with the salty ocean air filling your car, you'll experience a road trip like no other. And no road trip is complete without a playlist curated just for your SLO CAL adventure. Click here to listen to the playlist now!
