Travel Diaries: Big Sur, California
We love visiting Big Sur on the central coast of California, and whenever we’re there we question why we don’t visit more often. It’s so close to where we live!
Big Sur is the perfect destination if you want to unplug/recharge. There isn’t cell service in most areas, so it really forces you to take a break from the technology scene (we all need this, ya feel me?!). If you’ve visited before, you know the magic of Big Sur is discovered through simple exploration. I find the variety of terrain to be the most incredible! You can be cozy, deep in the woods one minute, and the next minute, frolicking on the beach. I want to know Big Sur like the back of my hand, so I thought I’d put together a list for you (and for me!) of places I’ve been (and loved) and places I’ll be visiting on future trips.
WHERE WE’VE BEEN (AND LOVED)
Big Sur Camgrounds and Cabins (pet friendly)
Andrew Molera State Park – a great hike to the beach
Pfeiffer Beach (pet friendly)
WHERE WE’RE GOING
A soak in the hot springs at Esalen (open to the public at 1am-3pm!)
Sykes Hot Springs – about a 20 mile hike (round trip)
