Central Coast

Central coast california
The Central Coast has some of the most glorious scenery in California, especially Highway 1 from Monterey to Morro Bay. Kids will want to run along sand beaches, scramble over smooth silvery driftwood, spend time being mesmerized by waves breaking on craggy rocks or look out to sea for otters, seals or gray whales. Here the Pacific Ocean is simply majestic.
