Pacific Coast Highway has been named the 'ultimate road trip' and a 'dream drive' over the years, and for good reason. Technically speaking, this highway starts in Washington State.
However, it is better known as the stretch of road that meanders through California with wild and stunning redwood forests and rugged coasts all the way down to a number of sun-drenched beaches in San Luis Obispo.
Wondering whether your new home is a good real estate opportunity? Well, after reading through the must-see sights along the Pacific Coast Highway and California Central Coast, you might have an answer to your question.
1. Redwood State and National Parks
Is the veteran explorer in you looking for their next backpacking adventure? Well, these humungous state and national parks are located approximately 5 miles south of the Crescent City.
Not only do these national parks offer the opportunity to gaze upon large expenses of old and magnificent redwoods (which happen to be the tallest trees on the planet) but your adventures can also take you to beautiful beaches such as the Enderts Beach.
Alternately, you can discover tide pools that are stacked with a myriad of colorful creations which include gray whales in late March or December!
2. The Lost Coast
If your busy schedule allows for one or two days of relaxation, then you will have the opportunity to traverse to The Lost Coast. You might have to travel 23 miles off Highway 101 but how else could you find your way to the most underdeveloped and untouched stretches of shoreline?
Where are the surfers at? Upon arriving at The Lost Coast, you're probably going to hear legendary waves calling out to you for an adrenaline rush. For others, this rarely inhabited location can offer solitude and breathtaking beauty, which is highly appreciated in the Golden State.
3. The Glass Beach of Fort Bragg
Since you were so keen on investing in coastal properties, how can we forget the small town of Fort Bragg and their coastline that seems like a picturesque landscape straight out of a fairy tale?
Why is it known as The Glass Beach? Well, this beach is made up of millions of smooth and small pieces of 'sea glass', in a large assortment of shapes and colors.
Apparently, in the late 18th century, through to the 1960's, locals used to dump their junk on the beach. Over a period of decades, the pounding waves not only cleaned the beach, but broke down pottery and glass ornaments into millions of tiny pieces.
Since the beach is a short driving distance from your new home, you can uncover this beautiful mystery for yourself.
