Overview

Emphasizing hidden beaches and affordable lodging and dining, this travel companioncovers the entire coast, from San Diego to Redwood National Park.

The spectacular, much loved California coast is a complex and diverse place, culturally and geographically. What with exclusive private areas in the south and steep cliffs in the north, beach access can be an intimidating journey. The aims of this guide are simple: to lead travelers to every inch of the coast worth visiting, and to provide them with savvy, up-to-date information on beaches, nature preserves, sports, museums, lodging, and restaurants. Icons throughout the book alert readers to the best places to take the family; to find solitude or a romantic inn; to surf or hike; to visit museums and historic sites; to shop in an urban area; and to go bird-watching or tide-pooling. Interviews and profiles of people who live and work along the coast--writers, surfers, Coast Guard patrol--provide insight and humor.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Here is a comprehensive guide to the spectacular coast of California. Drawing on his knowledge and experience as California's Coastal Access program manager, Neuwirth, along with Osborn (The Paper Chase, Houghton, 1971), has created a guide to beaches, nature preserves, sports, museums, lodging, and restaurants. Peppered throughout its pages are interviews with local experts who share bits of information concerning the part of the California coast with which they are familiar. Icons alert readers to the best places to take the family, find solitude, surf or hike, have a romantic rendezvous, or many other activities. A fine book for native Californians interested in exploring in greater depth their spectacular coastline. Travelers visiting California for the first time would be better off with a general travel guide. It is suitable for public libraries but not a necessary purchase outside of California.Sandra Knowles, Sch. of Medicine Lib., Columbia, SC
