Sometimes there is comfort in a perfectly mapped out trip and sometimes you just have to embrace spontaneity head on. On the first day of our Big Sur road trip, we did just that. We passed our intended destination and continued on North towards San Francisco. The catch, we wanted to reach our campground before sundown, so we set a goal to see San Francisco in 5 hours.
So what did we pack into our 5-hour San Francisco day trip? A mix of the must-see sites and a sprinkling of underrated spots that caught our eyes along the way.
