Big Sur is such a magical place and being able to drive up and down the CA-1 a few weekends ago has left me in complete awe of California beauty. Having grown up here, I’ve always taken for granted the beautiful things you can see in this state. I’d definitely say that Big Sur is the most gorgeous place in California. Words can’t describe the emotions I felt seeing the vast ocean meeting the rugged coastline–and driving along this windy highway..the views just kept getting better and better. The best way to put it is that I almost forgot to breathe at times.
By far the best drive in the world. I can’t wait to return when the cliffs are all green. After making our way into the woods, we stopped at Big Sur Bakery, a charming little bakery + restaurant tucked away off the 1.
After breakfast, we headed for the Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park to see McWay Falls. Super easy hike, beautiful cove.
We decided to lunch at Nepenthe after–definitely another spot worth checking out for the panoramic views! Woodpeckers and blue jays live in these surrounding trees and will fly right up to your plate and steal a fry! Flighty thieves, they were.
