Family Summer Fun

Of course, nothing beats playing at the beach and the San Simeon State Park has a lovely cove where you can enjoy the water with shelter from the winds. There may be an occasional elephant seal on the beach, so be careful to always keep your distance! If you really want to see the elephant seals, a short drive north to the official rookery is an amazing look at the life of these interesting behemoths.

Highway 1 Road Closure: A major attraction to California, the Highway 1 coastal route offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the remarkable coast communities along the way.  But, sometimes the iconic road trip you planned takes a different route. Our recent adverse weather conditions have created some major issues that will not be resolved for some time.  The Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge in the Big Sur area will have to be removed and replaced and there is no definite date on when that will happen, so at this time, there is no way to traverse Highway 1 between Carmel […]
