A sparsely populated area with stunning views, Big Sur attracts artists and tourists traveling California’s scenic Highway 1.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park and Piedras Blancas. Visiting Pfeiffer State Beach and McWay Falls will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park (in Felton) and Friends of the Elephant Seal (in San Simeon). It doesn't end there: hike along Partington Cove and take some stellar pictures from Ragged Point.

To find ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Big Sur vacation planning tool.

In June, daytime highs in Big Sur are 68°F, while nighttime lows are 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
