Central Coast

The Central Coast has some of the most glorious scenery in California, especially Highway 1 from Monterey to Morro Bay. Kids will want to run along sand beaches, scramble over smooth silvery driftwood, spend time being mesmerized by waves breaking on craggy rocks or look out to sea for otters, seals or gray whales. In winter, monarch butterflies overwinter in Santa Cruz, Monterey and Pismo Beach.
