  • It's reported to be some 4-5,000 miles worth of driving, riding or walking depending on how you wish to transit it. It follows the coast line and is very scenic.

  • Well worth the drive and a lot of scenic and historical places to stop along the way. Very few buses so the trip was enjoyable. Plenty of stops off the beaten path
