If you are looking for a place to stay this website has a guide to all the Big Sur Hotel Lodgings, personally I prefer the Big Sur Campgrounds. If you are planning on being hungry during your trip there is a Guide to All the Big Sur Restaurants but I must say my favorite Big Sir Restaurant for breakfast is Ragged Point Inn Restaurant and for lunch or dinner it is Nepenthe.
