How to spend a day in Big Sur

Big Sur in one day? No way! It can be done if you’re on a time limit – and these are some of your top spots!

+Pinnacles National Park – a bit out of the way off the coast, but worth it for a national parks enthusiast

+Point Lobos State Natural Reserve – don’t miss this place of epic beauty

+Bixby Canyon Bridge – you can’t possibly miss it if you’re driving down the coast

+Big Sur Bakerythe spot to grab a tasty bite on the road

+McWay Falls – iconic water-fall-ing into the sea vista

+ Elephant Seals at San Simeon – witness some wildlife action

If I had more time?

+Afternoon tea at the Steinbeck House

+Explore town of Monterey

+Visit Point Sur Lighthouse

+Hit the beach at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park

+Dine at Nepenthe

+Soak in the moonlight at the Esalen Hot Springs

+Hike the Salmon Creek Falls trail

But hey, I know this is a place I want to visit again so I have a whole additional day planned!

No matter what, just enjoy your time driving down one of America’s most scenic roads, California’s Highway 1.

More detailed accounts coming up this week, stay tuned!
