May 7 - May 9
Big Sur is one of the unspoiled treasures of California. Located on the magnificent Central California Coast high above the Pacific Ocean, Big Sur is the quaint and sparsely populated area where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise abruptly from the sea. The coastline offers some of the most resplendent views in the state.
