Pacific Coast Highway

CaliforniaOtherwise known as California State Route 1, this 655-mile highway isn’t the fastest way to get from one end of California to the other, but it’s hands-down the most beautiful. Initially constructed to connect the gorgeously rugged Big Sur region of central California to the rest of the state, the highway opened in the late 1930s and has been the vehicle for iconic west coast road trips ever since.More From Condé Nast Traveler:The World's Best BarsExtreme Drives for Brave Road-TrippersThe Top 25 Cities in the WorldEerily Beautiful Abandoned Places
