As this stretch of highway 1 takes you the coast then through the Redwood Forests of the Big Sur River Valley you come upon a number of clusters of little business areas all within a few miles of each other. They are all wonderful in their own ways and vary slightly but the one thing they have in common is they are there for you and have been for many years to do their best to serve the Pacific Coast Highway traveler and they generally do that well. Each is like a mini-resort or private campground offering a smorgasbord of traveler/vacationer facilities and services. If you stop and where you stop and what you do can depend on many things. What time of year it is, what are your needs and desires and what your budget i$.

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.
The Big Sur Valley Businesses fall along the highway in this order:
