In 1903 the first cross-country road trip originated in San Francisco and the California Road Trip has been a rite of passage ever since. Celebrated in music, literature, and film, it is an enduring theme central to the American experience. People from every corner of the globe come to roam, gaze, taste, connect, unplug, and discover, making their way across California’s 400,000 miles of roadways and 840 miles of coastline. So buckle up and head out on a life-changing journey across the Golden State.
