A sparsely populated area with stunning views, Big Sur attracts artists and tourists traveling California’s scenic Highway 1.
Get out of town with these interesting Big Sur side-trips: Pinnacles National Park (in Paicines), Hearst Castle (in San Simeon) and China Cove and Gibson Beach (in Carmel). There's still lots to do: admire the majestic nature at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, take in the views from Bixby Bridge, and enjoy the sand and surf at Pfeiffer State Beach.

November in Big Sur sees daily highs of 65°F and lows of 47°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
