    California's Highway One stretches some 656 miles from San Juan Capistrano in the south and heads north along some of the most awesome wild coastline in the country to Leggett. Mostly built during the 1930's, parts have been temporarily closed over the years due to mudslides, earthquakes and El Nino-driven storms.

    One writer described it as 'The country's most picturesque stretch of asphalt.' For many long stretches, the highway separates rolling green hills from high ocean-cliffs overlooking the blue pacific. And various towns along the way provide even more atmosphere for adventure and flavor. This place is a popular honeymoon destination.
