One of the most beautiful locations at the end of one of the most beautiful drives in the world, Big Sur is never a disappointment. Although San Francisco has many city charms and natural beauties, no one ever forgets their first time driving down to Big Sur. If you have the time to make the drive, it's definitely worth it. Highlights include the Bixby Creek Bridge and the Point Sur Lighthouse. If you start the drive just south of San Francisco, and if you're trying to watch your budget, a stay in a private room in the Pigeon Point Hostel includes a dip in their private hot tub that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
