Bixby Bridge

Big Sur, California

The gem of California’s iconic Route 1, Bixby Bridge offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean’s lush and rugged coastline for those who are daring enough to brave its vertigo-inducing outlook. Celebrated as an engineering marvel when it was completed in 1932, today it remains one of the world's highest single-span bridges and is memorialized in countless car commercials. No surprise there. After all, if any image has launched a thousand road trips -- it’s this one.
