Travel Tips & Advice for the Pacific Coast Highway

Pacific Coast Highway Activities

Number one must-do activity when travelling along the Pacific Coast Highway? Stop at the many viewing points to take wow-worthy photos – we recommend pulling in and snapping a shot of the iconic Bixy Bridge. But there’s more than just scenic vistas! Go whale watching, keeping eye peeled for grey whales, play a round of golf at the Pebble Beach course, surfing the waves and ride an old fashioned roller coaster on the Santa Cruz Boardwalk.

Pacific Coast Highway Food & Drink

From Los Angeles to San Francisco and the many, many towns and villages in between, there is no shortage of places to eat and drink along the Pacific Coast Highway. We guarantee there is a restaurant, café and bar to suit your taste buds (and budget!) from casual seaside dining to upscale eateries. There’s a real focus on fresh and local with farmer markets selling locally grown produce and a number of wineries growing grapes for Californian vintages.

Pacific Coast Highway Attractions

The incredible scenery really takes centre stage when travelling along the Pacific Coast Highway, but that’s not all! For wildlife viewing, stop off at the Elephant Seal Rookery at San Piedras Beach or spend some time at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. What else? McWay Falls is an 80 foot waterfall that drops into the Pacific Ocean, Hearst Castle is a mansion with sprawling grounds and over 100 rooms and Pigeon Point is home to the tallest lighthouse on the Pacific Coast.
