Historic Route 101

Breathtaking ocean views and coastal communities along the entire stretch of this year around motorcycle route.

Linking a string of charming beach communities from Oceanside to La Jolla, Historic Highway 101 hugs the Pacific Ocean and provides a connection to the simpler, quieter lifestyle of the past. Cement slabs and strip malls have not found their way here. Funky shops housed in everything from Victorian homes to old 1950s gas stations, local cafes and coffee houses, and miles of sandy beaches are still part of the lure of this fascinating strip of old road.
