2) Big Sur
Big Sur is a quiet coastal California gem with boisterous waves and breathtaking ocean views. There are not exact boundaries for Big Sur’s limits, however many believe it to expand the 90 mile entirety from Monterey County to San Luis Obispo County, between the Carmel River and the San Carpoforo Creek. Big Sur is adored for its coastal exploration opportunities, rocky cliffs, delicate sand, and adventurous coves. Popular attractions include McWay Falls, which spits out a thin white stream of salt water through a botanical cliff. Big Sur is also home to the legendary Bixby Canyon Bridge, which is referenced in a song by the chart topping indie rock group known as Death Cab for Cutie. Visitors of Big Sur can enjoy an arrangement of cabins and campgrounds spread throughout the region for a wildly authentic and rejuvenating coastal experience free of technological distractions and the regular hustle and bustle of California.
