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.
