Pacific Coast Highway

Big Sur, California

Bixby Bridge’s iconic sweep almost defines the Big Sur experience. Along this wild stretch of Highway 1, Bixby Bridge spans 714 feet over Bixby Creek, which flows into the Pacific Ocean 280 feet below. Opened in 1932, the bridge offers stunning views of the Pacific coastline -- for road-trip enthusiasts, this coastal route is an essential rite of passage.
