Over the weekend we drove down the Pacific Coast Highway from where we live in the bay area down to L.A. It definitely added a solid 2.5 hours to the trip (at least) but the views were amazing so I think it is definitely worthwhile to do at least once. It was a gorgeous foggy day and it really made the coast look magical. I definitely fell in love! The really pretty views are just about impossible to take pictures of because there aren't trails and walkways to get up close so you will just have to take the drive and see for yourself!
