17 Spots to Hit on the Ultimate California Road Trip

As the most populous state in the U.S., California offers visitors a lot more than just Disneyland and the Hollywood sign. Many of California’s most incredible spots fall along its 800+ mile long coast, facing the majestic Pacific Ocean. Luckily for us, much of this coastline is hugged closely by the fabled California State Route 1, also known as the Pacific Coast Highway, creating a superb setting for the Ultimate California Road Trip.
