What to do in Big Sur: Watefalls, Hiking, Beaches & Parks

Without a doubt, Big Sur is one of my favorite places in California. I recommend it all of the time and if you want to see just a little of the beauty California has to offer, then you must drive the windy road that makes up Highway 1 through Big Sur. There are so many […]

Pfeiffer Falls & Valley View Trail: Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park

As with anything in Big Sur, Pfeiffer State Park is crazy beautiful. It is nestled in the non coastal side of Big Sur, right when you leave the beaches on Highway 1 for the roll green forest, all before returning to the beach near Bixby Bridge. As with any state park there is camping and hiking […]

Limekiln State Park and Limekiln Falls in Big Sur

I am constantly shocked by how amazing the Big Sur coastline of California is. Every time I visit, I stumble on something new that takes my breath away such as Partington Cove, and while Limekiln State Park is certainly not a hidden place it is still not given the recognition it deserves.

Bixby Creek Bridge: Photos and History of this Iconic Bridge

Ewoldsen Trail: Hiking in the Redwoods of Big Sur

If you didn’t know, I am a huge fan of Big Sur. If I could pick two places to live out my days in California, I would have to say it would be Big Sur and Yosemite, both are as good as California gets. There is just so much beauty in the small stretch of […]

McWay Waterfall Trail: Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park

The McWay Waterfall in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is one of the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen. The water cascades down the face of the cliff and lands right on the sand, feeding the ocean itself. It looks to me like something out of a movie with the shear beauty this little […]

Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur: Purple Sand, Sea Caves & Dog Friendly

I literally stumbled upon this state beach during a recent trip up the coast and boy was it awesome. After visiting the McWay Waterfall in Julia Burns State Park I was looking over some pictures of Big Sur I had pulled up on my phone and noticed the rock with a hole, that is a staple […]
