The famous Bixby Bridge in Big Sur plays host to this stretch of Hwy. 1 on the Central Coast of California. If you've never been, it's worth your while to take a nice, long, leisurely drive from San Francisco down to Santa Barbara. You'll see some of the prettiest and dramatic coastline with small, rural towns along the way. Go in the winter and spring months when everything is green, wildflowers are blooming and you are less likely to encounter fog.
