A sparsely populated area with stunning views, Big Sur attracts artists and tourists traveling California’s scenic Highway 1.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Big Sur: Mission San Antonio de Padua (in Jolon), Garland Ranch Regional Park (in Carmel Valley) and Pinnacles National Park (in Paicines). The adventure continues: stroll through Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, immerse yourself in nature at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, grab your bike and head to Monterey Bay Recreation Trail, and identify plant and animal life at Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
