Southern California Coast

California is a road-tripper’s dream destination. If there’s one place in North America to live the Dharma Bum life, it’s California. Undeniably, it has the best weather in the western hemisphere, along with the greatest range of topography, scenery, recreational activity, culture, and lifestyle options of anywhere on the planet! I love California. It is my “go-to” place year after year. Man, I just can’t get enough of it.
I love those transcendent moments on my motorcycle that money can’t buy: the smell of the Pacific coming through the Golden Gate, the rich scent in forests of giant sequoias, and the sweetness of strawberries picked fresh. I’m just constantly in awe of how beautiful it is. The unique cities and towns, the ocean, the forests, the Pacific Coast Highway, the sunsets, the food, the people, the mountains, the desert….I just can’t get enough of it!
So, for the next while, I’ll be re-positing some recent adventures of past California road trips that I’ve taken – a little “California Series”, if you will.

“The San Diego region in many ways is defined by our relationship with the ocean. It’s our front yard and a beautiful playground for families and visitors. It should be clean, safe, and inviting.”

– Scott Peters

“People actually enjoy it when it rains in San Diego because we never get it. It’s a nice change of pace. When you live in Southern California, everybody says, ‘It’s so expensive there.’ I tell them, ‘It’s just a very expensive weather tax.'”
