California’s Highway 1 is known for its stunning coastal views. Hugging the shoreline of the state, Highway 1 provides unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean. The Sonoma Coastline along the northern part of the route is by far one of those most beautiful sections. The coast seamlessly blends the rugged beauty of the northern California coastline with the gently rolling hills of the vineyards. You’ll still get the laid-back coastal California vibe, but with a far better wine selection than you would find further south. The weather in Sonoma is lovely all year long. The cool pacific air is perfect for sitting by a fire in the evenings with a glass of red wine and your best friends. If you’re just passing through and get hungry during your drive, there are no shortage of places to eat. Along the coast, you’ll find plenty of restaurants serving up local dishes with a spectacular view.
