  • The Big Sur was the highlight of our drive from San Francisco to San Diego. There are so many stunning vista along this iconic sea drive but none better than Big Sur. literally breath taking.

  • It's a unique experience along the coast highway. We were there on Wednesday morning, queued on 9:45, the park ranger closed the gate as soon as no more car waiting , so you don't wanna have the traffic jam. It's the guided tour by two volunteers. They divided us into two groups of around 13 of each. Slowly walking towards the top with experienced stories shared with us. They will charge $12 per person after the tour, which I think it's lowest price for a nice guided tour. You also have the chance to buy some souvenir on the top. They will escort everyone out together after 2 and half hour tour.
  • Going back for Halloween if you guys are open. The buildings are awesome and the restoration efforts are much appreciated.
