California's coast is several hundred miles long but the stretch of shore near San Luis Obispo, accessible on Highway 1, offers up some of its most dramatic ocean overlooks. Take a long, leisurely drive along the shoreline stopping to watch the waves crash fiercely up against rocky cliffs before steering back in the direction of big city.
Contrast the rugged seascapes sported along the Pacific Coast Highway with the San Luis Obispo North Coast Byway, a visually rich ride that winds past bird preserves, long stretches of wine country and a parade of farmers markets.
