5 Cities in 72 Hours: Part 4- The Big Sur Coast

Passing through Big Sur was nerve-wracking (for me at least) and beautiful at the same time. The views on Highway 1 is absolutely breathtaking but there is a zigzag road along this route that kept me at the edge of my seat. I was seriously in a panic mode for about 90 miles heading to Pismo Beach on the first day of our road-trip. We were trying to get passed that zigzag part of the road before it gets dark because we are not familiar with the area. We didn’t make a lot of stops to enjoy the scenic route that day because of our tight schedule but thankfully we had plenty of time the next day on our way back to San Francisco. We tried to take as much photos as we can and enjoyed the breathtaking views as we don’t know when are we going to have that chance again. We had so much fun exploring although we were tired from driving long hours with very little sleep as we did not arrive at Pismo Beach until just before midnight. We’d love to go back to Big Sur and go to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park to see McWay Falls. We tried to go there before heading to Pismo Beach but since we were in a hurry we didn’t really get to explore the area.

Consideredย as one of the world’s best roads (according to MSN’s, The world’s best road trips), I highly recommend this road trip to anyone as the photos doesn’t do justice of how beautiful and serene the views are. It’s absolutely spectacular! Truly a beautiful creation of God! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some of our photos ๐Ÿ™‚
