The Golden State offers everything we could ask for: mountains, beaches, breathtaking views. It’s where we dream of going when we want to escape reality for a little while and embark on an adventure. If you’re California dreamin’, here are a few west coast goals to knock off your budget list:
Go for a Hike
There’s no better way to celebrate nature than to hike it. From Monterey to Carmel, and Big Sur, there are so many hikes (for even the most novice adventurer) that will have you break a sweat but will also leave you feeling accomplished.
If you decide to take full day hiking, you’ll want to camp out – at least just once. California has one of the most pleasant climates in the U.S. and some of the best spots to pitch your tent. Northern California is famous for Yosemite National Park, and the Southern half gives you plenty of options along Big Sur that are open to the stars and the sea.
Take a Road Trip
What california is known for – the Pacific Coast Highway. Driving up the west coast is unlike any other road trip we can imagine. On one side you’ll zip past breathtaking views of mountains and on the other side, you’ll stop to explore the many beautiful beaches in the state.
While you’re on your journey, don’t forget to stop by Monterey, Carmel, and Pacific Grove. The shoreline is right at your fingertips and so are the rocks and sea. Book your stay with Butterfly Grove Inn! Our motel is located right along the beautiful California coast in Pacific Grove and is the perfect sweet spot to stop along your journey!
