A sparsely populated area with stunning views, Big Sur attracts artists and tourists traveling California’s scenic Highway 1.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Sat): kick back and relax at Pfeiffer State Beach, admire the majestic nature at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, and then stroll through Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. Here are some ideas for day two: snap pictures at Bixby Bridge, look for all kinds of wild species at Monarch Grove Sanctuary, then enjoy the sea views from Point Pinos Lighthouse, and finally get to know the fascinating history of Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard.

To find traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Big Sur trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 61°F in March, and nighttime lows around 46°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
