Pacific Coast Highway “PCH”

A Discover-North America Series Achievement

Also known as California Highway 1, the Pacific Coast Highway is the longest state route in California at just over 656 miles. The PCH begins south of Dana Point in Orange County and ends at US 101 in Mendocino County. It continues through the Oregon and Washington state coastline.

Along the way, the coastal highway passes through such beautiful spots as Monterey, Big Sur, Pebble Beach, Santa Monica, Malibu, and Santa Barbara, to name just a few.

As you fly the Pacific Coast Highway, you’ll encounter jaw-dropping vistas, seaside villages, incredible wildlife, craggy headlands, crashing waves, sandy beaches, and rocky tide pools invite exploring.
