Travel south along Highway 1 from Victorian Inn for about an hour, and you'll find yourself in Big Sur. This amazingly beautiful destination along the coast is about 90 miles long, running from San Simeon to Carmel.
It extends where the Santa Lucia Mountains stand tall and then spill into the ocean. Discover great hiking in Big Sur's state parks. Make your way to the Pacific Ocean for serious beachcombing. And keep an eye out for California Gray Whales, which migrate along the shores in December.
