In this post, I take you on a photo tour that will make you want to drive the Pacific Coast Hwy despite the 2017 Big Sur landslides. I discuss how Big Sur landslides in 2017 have changed the landscape of the Pacific Coast Hwy. Without Big Sur is it worth it? After my May 2017 California Road Trip, I say resoundingly YES! Find out why.
When researching best restaurants in San Luis Obispo, Novo Restaurant & Lounge will likely come up in the top of any search result. Due to land slides in Big Sur, we had to change our itinerary a bit from our initial plans. Knowing this, I really wanted to be sure our dinner included a stop in San Luis Obispo to give this downtown SLO restaurant a try. Thankfully, we successfully made it to SLO by dinner and enjoyed a fabulous and relaxing meal at Novo Restaurant & Lounge.
When your three year old is still on east coast time, he gets up at 5:15 am in Monterey, California. Sneaking out so as not to wake the rest of the family, we walked out into the brisk cool morning, crossed the street from our hotel onto a very nice jogging and bike walkway, and were greeted with this stunningsunrise! This is quite a sunrise for my very first west coast sunrise! WOW!
