San Francisco to Los Angeles - 3 Days

Explore the rugged California shoreline on this one-way trek down the scenic Pacific Coast Highway. With stops in Santa Cruz, Monterey Bay, Big Sur, and Los Angeles, there's plenty to satisfy both the nature lover and city slicker!

After meeting and greeting in San Francisco, we'll head south down the legendary Pacific Coast Highway. Hit the beach in Santa Cruz while surfers challenge the waves in Steamer Lane, or check out the Surfing Museum housed in the Mark Abbott Memorial lighthouse. In Monterey, stroll along John Steinbeck's beloved Cannery Row, spend some time at Fisherman's Wharf, or pay a visit to the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Share your stories around the campfire at our campsite under the coastal redwoods of Big Sur, and slumber peacefully under the tallest living trees on earth. After a gourmet breakfast, we continue south to San Simeon State Park. Take a tour of the opulent Hearst Castle, hike through the surrounding wetlands, go sea kayaking in the bay, or just relax on the beach!

Gear up for an exciting day of Los Angeles highlights and on the way do some mansion spotting on the cliffs of in Malibu. This trip comes to an end in Hollywood or Santa Monica, but your adventure doesn't have to stop here! Hop on our Western Trail and continue on an amazing trek to Joshua tree, Las Vegas and Zion.
