That includes one of Kathy Petrino’s favorite destinations is actually one of the world’s best purely visual tourist destinations, Big Sur, in California.
Big Sur is a very mountainous and very rugged section of the Central Coast of California. Running along the coast from San Simeon to Carmel, this is where the Santa Lucia Mountains suddenly rise out of the waters of the Pacific Ocean. The main reason to travel to Big Sur is the scenery and, while the most popular way to visit Big Sur is to take in the beautiful scenery from the car, the area is also known as an adventurer’s dream, since there is some of the best hiking and mountain climbing in the world, as well as some of the finest and most remote beaches you will ever see, anywhere.
