U.S. Travel Destinations of 2016: Breathtaking Moments

Favorite Travel Destinations

Top 2 Sights of 2016

To burn off calories and walk off a wine buzz, I love hikes and walks along breathtaking landscapes. Here are my favorite breathtaking travel moments from two walks in Northern California:

Point Lobos, Carmel

My favorite walk and most breathtaking moment in the U.S. of 2016 goes to Point Lobos in Carmel. After an afternoon eating and drinking on the Carmel Food Tour, a walk in Point Lobos State Reserve was the perfect follow up. Read more about the state reserve here

How to Get There
– Drive to Point Lobos State Reserve
62 California Hwy 1, Carmel-By-The-Sea
+1-831-624-4909, 8am to 7pm
Entrance fee $10 per car to park

 

Ocean Beach, San Francisco

While the sights of the city are breathtaking enough, the panorama of Ocean Beach is endlessly beautiful. Start at Ocean Beach and walk along the coast through Lands End and to Baker Beach which leads you to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge

How to Get There
– Take public transportation (e.g., an Uber) to Ocean Beach or The Cliff House
– Drive to Ocean Beach. Find parking along the Great Highway, or up along The Cliff House. Alternatively, drive father uphill to Lands End’s parking lots
