Along the Pacific Coast Highway in Three Days (Mostly In Pictures, Coz Who Needs Words?) 3/3

Hello and welcome to day three of the road trip! (You can read the first post in the series here and the second post here) I left you off with some brownie sundae on Cannery Row! On day three, we took the opportunity to explore the almost ‘private beach’ behind Spin Drift Inn.

Pacific Highway Road Trip: Day 3 Monterey Bay

Leaving Monterey was tough but I was excited about Santa Cruz! By the time we reached Santa Cruz, we were ready for lunch at Burgr & dessert at Donnelly Chocolates. Their chocolates are famous all over US (and the world, claimed by the company ;P) so if you drop by, it might be worth a try if you have a sweet tooth. It wasn’t per my palette but my sister and friends loved them!

Santa Cruz is one of the most stunning beaches in California! ❤

After Santa Cruz was a quick drive through Mavericks (Because who isn’t a fan of Chasing Mavericks!) Photographed here is the Pillar Point Air Force Station that overlooks Half Moon Bay.

It was a mid-day energy slump so we found this tiny little cafe along the coast called Here Comes The Sun. They were closing so the coffee was whatever but I thought the interiors were adorable!

We finally reached San Francisco and the final hotel stop was the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental. It was a gorgeous view and was worth the splurge.

Z&Y are one of my favorite Chinese restaurant ever so there was no way we wouldn’t do dinner there! They actually have decent vegetarian options. After Obama stopped by the restaurant has gotten very mainstream but the food is still great! This was followed by the Pagan Idol on Bush St. to cap the night! Bet you thought you would see Bush and Obama in the same paragraph on this blog huh? Well… Just keeping you on your toes!

Before heading back to square one, we had some delicious breakfast followed by a tour of Grace Cathedral, kind of coming full circle! 

Thanks for joining us on our road trip!!! What did you think? Which places would you include along the coast? (You can read the first post in the series here and the second post here)

Again, I would like to thank California Through my Lens and Josh’s blogs on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) Road Trip Day Guide. #checkitout
