General Note
Translation of: Highway 1, auf der Traumstraße Kaliforniens den Pazifik entlang.
General Note
Includes index.
"In the north, it stops in the shadow of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge and towering redwood forests, in the south, it slips into the City of Angels. You can begin your trip at either end of the 656-mile (1,055-km) highway or anywhere in between. Skirting the California coastline, you will discover all that California has to offer, from the bustle and excitement of Los Angeles and the star-studded Hollywood Hills to the ultimate "City by the Bay," San Francisco. On the way, there is an overwhelming choice of where to stop, what to see and what to do: checkered winery fields, waterfalls and wildflower meadows; sky-kissing redwood forests; freshly caught seafood at every stop; beaches of sand or sparkling pebble, not to mention sea lions. Stop to watch for whales, to explore towns and historic sites; to tour elegant Santa Barbara, and the beaches and attractions of Carmel, Monterey, and Santa Cruz. The photographs, descriptions and detailed maps in this book are all you need to travel Highway 1 for as long and as far as your spirit of adventure takes you. [This book] presents the iconic road in stunning color, a vibrant testament to why California welcomes the most domestic visitors of all the states, and is consistently one of the top three states visited by international travelers. Each worthwhile stop or side trip is shown in multiple photographs, all with extended captions."--Dust jacket flaps.
