Northern California Drives
The quintessential California drive seems to hug the Pacific coast
top down, winding along the highway, watching for lighthouses, secluded
beaches and fishing villages. Try our Scenic Drives for the
Pacific Coast Highway, Redwood Highway, Santa Cruz Central Coast, or
Monterey Big Sur.
If San Francisco is your destination, try our 27 Mile Drive, covering
all the prime sites without the wear and tear of the 49 Mile Drive
found in most guidebooks. Or, escape across the Golden Gate
Bridge for the Napa Sonoma Wine Country Drive.
Prefer to really get away? Try one of the drives like Shasta Lake
Trinity National Forest, Lassen Volcanic National Park Region or
Yosemite Mono Lake.
History buffs and wine connoisseurs will especially enjoy the Historic
Gold Country Drive along the foothills of the Sierras explore a
section or do the whole drive.
Southern California Drives
The cities of Los Angeles and San Diego are so rich in places to go and
things to do we created three drives in each city do one, two or all
Santa Barbaras idyllic setting on the coast has been combined with
charming inland towns and wineries for a really memorable Scenic Trip.
Discover the inland delights with a trip to see the giants in Sequoia
National Park or the strangely shaped joshua trees near Palm
Springs. If you are ready for an "only in California experience,"
take the Death Valley Scenic Drive.
Cruising the California coast with the top down, exploring
