The idea of driving down the Pacific Coast Highway along the California coastline captured my imagination long ago – maybe it was from a song, or maybe it came from glimpses I had driving along short portions of the coast during my college years. But I finally got a chance to experience the incredible stretch of coastline from San Francisco to Los Angeles, driving down the PCH and the 101 for 9 days, and it was nothing short of magical.

I am so excited I was able to collaborate with Travellers Autobarn for this trip – I got to experience vanlife for the very first time with their Kuga campervan, and by the end of the trip I had completely fallen in love with being able to have my home away from home on all my adventures. Here’s my itinerary for the ultimate California coast road trip, so you enjoy your own vanlife adventure too!
