The Pacific Coast Highway or CA State Route 1 as it is officially known, runs for over 600 miles from Orange County, California in the south to Mendocino County, California in the north. The road runs along or near the coastline and offers spectacular views of the California coast and passes through charming coastal towns such as Morro Bay, Big Sur, San Francisco, Point Reyes, Albion and Fort Bragg. Along the way there are wonderful points of interest including Bixby Bridge, Hearst Castle, the Golden Gate Bridge, numerous coastal lighthouses and scenic views around every turn of the twisting road.
