Southern California Coast, Hwy 1 & I-5 Dana Point – San Diego

There are over 66 miles of magnificent beaches, coves, bluffs and bays along this stretch of California.  There were so many places we wanted to stop and explore along the way  but parking is always a challenge when we’re pulling the fifth-wheel. Doheny S.B. is an absolutely beautiful location, we were in site #72 ( … More Southern California Coast, Hwy 1 & I-5 Dana Point – San Diego

California Coast, Hwy 101 & 1, Monterey to Los Angeles

From the first public library, theater and newspaper in California to one of the most scenic drives in the world this stretch of California is awesome!

Secluded beaches, quaint coastal villages, rugged coastlines and great wines and beers 🙂 We drove thru Humbolt Redwoods State Park, (we did a post on this area “Avenue of the Giants”).  It still amazes me to see the Giant Redwoods, I appreciate them even more after learning about these majestic trees and how they have … More California Coast, Hwy 101 & Hwy 1 – Fortuna to Halfmoon Bay

Mendocino Coast

We made a short stop in Willits, CA to see the Mendocino Coast. The coast was beautiful, but it was cool and breezy so we didn’t explore the area as much as we wanted to.  The weather on the coast QUICKLY transitioned from 70’s and partly cloudy to low 60’s and foggy!    Mendocino Coast … More Mendocino Coast

Avenue of the Giants

One of our first stops from Klamath to Avenue of the Giants was the cute seaside city of Trinidad.  This city is the gateway to the California Coastal National Monument. We were unexpectedly surprised with how beautiful Trinidad Harbor is.   I would love to stay here next time and explore this area more! We stayed in … More Avenue of the Giants
