BEST PLACES TO VISIT
Stretching 90 miles between Monterey Bay and San Simeon on the west coast of central California, the towns remote location, peaceful nature and incomparable beauty entices visitors. The Pacific Coast Highway, which was built less than 100 years ago, is the main road that runs through the region and becomes the most scenic in Big Sur. Sitting high above the surf, the highway clings to the edge of the area's cliffs, providing spectacular views as it weaves in and out of the seemingly endless coastline. The calming culture is contagious, and has been known to attract minds of all kinds seeking inspiration, refuge or transformation. Countless musicians, artists, writers and photographers have chronicled Big Sur's powerful presence in their work. Along the highway you will find art galleries, wellness retreats and Cliffside eateries. The diverse landscape trumps all of the area's amenities by a landslide, with state parks and beaches, mountains, beaches, rivers, valleys, creeks, coves, wildflowers and wildlife linger at every turn.
The city with its Spanish moss, Southern accents and creepy graveyards, is a lot like Charleston, South Carolina. Savannah College of Art and Design students mix with ghost hunters and preservationists, while Southern-fried restaurants share street blocks with edgy cafes and restored theaters. Savannah's antebellum past seeps from nearly every corner but "The Hostess City of the South" abandons its genteel behavior by nightfall to prove it also knows how to show visitors a good time.
13.ZION NATIONAL PARK
Nestled in Utah's southwest corner, the park is no longer the quiet sanctuary it once was with over 4.3 million people visiting it in 2016. It's as if travelers stumbled upon a secret and can't get enough of the apricot-colored Zion Canyon, which they can view wading through its Virgin River or ascending Angels Landing, with each bend in the river or turn in the trail affording an even more breathtaking view. At night a blanket of stars illuminates the night sky is a welcome nightcap to a day filled with active pursuits.
Described as one of America's most beautiful places for its dramatically colorful landscapes. The towering red rocks and jagged sandstone buttes matched against an almost always blue sky have beckoned to professional and budding artists for years. Over the past few decades, spiritualists have flocked to the region to take advantage of the numerous New Age "vortexes" with supposed spirit-balancing powers found here. The area is home to more than 100 hiking trails. Don't forget to bring your boots!
With its humble architecture and the lifestyle in perfect syntheses of laid back and NorCal sophistication. On the northern side of the peninsula, the town draws most of the tourists, while farther South, Carmel-by-the-Sea lures the easygoing wealthy set.

The coastline boasts some of the most coveted fairways in the world with a abundance of natural wonders, luxury resorts and seafood restaurants.
