Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park
One of the most revered state parks in California, Pfeiffer Big Sur features the majestic California coastal redwood trees. Visitors marvel at these red-barked giants who can grow beyond heights of 300 feet. The central & northern California coasts, along with a few areas in Oregon are the only places in the world where these trees can be seen growing in their natural habitat.

Carmel Valley
The grape growing regions of Monterey and Carmel are part of the Central Coast Viticultural Area, and are beginning to rival the famous Napa Valley to the north in terms of wine quality and production. You'll travel to beautiful rolling hills and thriving fields of agricultural for a chance to visit a local winery, taste their wines and partake in a tour of their vineyard and grounds. Then you'll have time to explore the small village of Carmel Valley itself and enjoy some time on your own to find a charming local restaurant or café for lunch. For the true wine buffs, there are several more wineries within the village to visit and enjoy.

What you will see along the way:
Kick back and enjoy the views of the central coast with its jagged cliffs, beautiful waters and rolling waves with the occasional marine mammals poking their heads above water. This is one of the most undeveloped stretches of coastline on the west coast, and its beauty has inspired artists, poets, musicians and writers for decades.

Photo Opportunities:
Bixby Creek Bridge
After crossing Bixby Creek Bridge, stop a scenic vista for views of this impressive and iconic structure that spans the rocky canyon and creek that give the name. You'll feel you have truly arrived in California with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean as the iconic coastline merges with the rolling hills of the Golden State.
