Life in the Bay Area can become a life of routine. For any commuter averaging a total of 40 minutes or more to arrive at their job on Monday through Friday, it can quickly become a total drag. Fortunately for us mere commuters we live in the Bay Area, home to many beautiful parks. Big Sur is one of these places and its located just south of the bay and past Monterey Ca. You’ll head south on a miniature road trip down Highway 1. Take a day off, head to Big Sur, or even better spend a whole weekend there. Every once in a while, we need a feel of adventure and Big Sur is surrounded by incredible wilderness and scenery that will keep you on your toes.
1. McWay Falls
A beautiful waterfall that cascades off a granite cliff into a sandy cove meeting the ocean side. The actually beach is closed to the public, but all you really need to see it the view in person. Trust me the drive is worth it!
2. Ewoldsen Trail
You’ll get a chance to walk beneath big, strong and tall redwood, oak and chaparral trees.
3. Set up camp
there are various locations for campground
4. Bixby Bridge
an iconic bridge directly by the Californian coastline. As you drive on Highway 1, be sure to pull over on a designated rest stop and check out the bridge. The bridge itself is an incredible structure, but the view gives it a greater impression.
