California State Route 1

California

Risk Factor: Another one to avoid if heights are an issue — Highway 1 is known for its stunning coastal views and steep drop-offs from the California cliffs into the ocean. The winding two-lane highway also traverses numerous bridges, including the Bixby Bridge, which soars 280 feet above the Bixby Creek Gorge in Big Sur.

Why you might be tempted to drive it anyway: If you do the drive south-to-north, you can take advantage of being on the inside lane—away from those cliff edges—and still get to take in the impressive scenery.
