Tour Big Sur, our Spectacular Coast (South of San Francisco)

bigsurLet's go to Big Sur!

the famously beautiful stretch of Pacific Ocean coastline. We include stops in Monterey & Carmel—they're en route. To feast one's eyes on a great panoramic view of the Big Sur coast, you can take a strenuous hike in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park...or enjoy lunch on the terrace of the legendary Nepenthe restaurant or at the Post Ranch Inn, one of Zagat's highest rated. For a somewhat shorter itinerary we can stop at vista points before and after the iconic Bixby Bridge --its ten-story arch is the one you've seen in nature calendars and sportscar ads. If you're a devotee of rare phenomena, you may choose to spend an additional hour or so traveling to see the little known yet spectacular! McWay Falls waterfall, which uniquely shoots out from a cliff and drops 80 feet to the beach below.

Back in Carmel or Monterey—having stopped several times along the way to enjoy incomparable vistas—you can peruse some of a hundred art galleries, visit the beautiful 1770 mission church built for New Spain, Steinbeck's (tarted up) Cannery Row, Clint Eastwood's B&B or a world-class Aquarium. Unlike with other companies, if the fog is thick and unrelenting, you won't spend hours peering through a gray mist--we'll seek out other activities for your enjoyment. We also can feature a winery visit or arrange for a walking tour by a local expert. No one lucky enough to see the Big Sur coast on a clear day fails to say "Wow!"
