Big Sur ©
A sparsely populated area with stunning views, Big Sur attracts artists and tourists traveling California’s scenic Highway 1.
Escape the urban bustle at Partington Cove and Spyglass Hill Golf Course. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at William Randolph Hearst Memorial Beach and Bayonet Black Horse Golf Course. Change things up with these side-trips from Big Sur: Talbott Vineyards (in Carmel Valley), Mission San Antonio de Padua (in Jolon) and San Simeon (Sebastian General Store & Hearst Ranch Winery). There's much more to do: visit a coastal fixture at Point Sur State Historic Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Pfeiffer State Beach, take in the exciting artwork at Coast Gallery Big Sur, and admire the majestic nature at Andrew Molera State Park.

In April, plan for daily highs up to 62°F, and evening lows to 47°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
