Word on the Street

Located in the spectacular Big Sur area, Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park certainly has its share of gorgeous scenery.  The terrain is a great mix of forest trails (with redwoods, conifers, oaks, sycamores, alders, willows and more) and open meadows.   Opportunities for wildlife spotting abound: children can spot birds, squirrels, raccoons, and if they're lucky, black-tail deer.  Tent camping is available; if proper rooms are more your family's style, the Big Sur Lodge, located inside the park, has 61 guest rooms and all the amenities of suburbia.  Except suburbia was never as pretty as this.
