Pacific Coast Highway 1 is one of the most iconic roadways on the West coast! I have never driven on this route, so we decided to plan an epic road trip that will take us from Southern California all the way up to Seattle, Washington. A friend of ours was so gracious and shared her experience and a few travel tips from her own coastal road trip with us.
She offered information that included some great points of interest to see and visit as we were heading out on our own coastal road trip. She mentioned a few rest stops, beautiful hiking trails, and gorgeous view points for photos. Here is an outline of what she suggested for us.

She spent time camping in the Redwoods and explored several hiking trails. Here are a few great places that she suggests to see and explore.
1.Hearst Castle/San Simeon are worth a visit if you have never done it and you have time for one of the tours. I went on the Main House/Pool tour.
