Big Sur

Big Country of the South

A sparsely populated area with stunning views, Big Sur attracts artists and tourists traveling California’s scenic Highway 1. The isolated "ranchos" and eccentric vacation homes in the area draw creative types and writers seeking refuge. Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac, and Hunter S. Thompson all lived in the area for a time and helped infuse it with a mysterious and creative vibe. Big Sur is in California (CA).
