Historic Route 101

Highway 101
Coastal Beauty

Breathtaking ocean views and coastal towns 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.

Anza-Borrego Desert

Anza-Borrego
Amazing Desert Scenery

Best in the spring and fall as the summer will be blistring hot and in the winter there can be bone chilling winds and snow/ice.

At 615,000 acres, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California and one of the largest desert protected areas in the west. Located in the eastern half of San Diego County, the park extends roughly 25 miles east to west and 50 miles north to south.

Palomar Mountain

Doane Pond - Mt. Palomar
Majestic Mountain

This adrenaline pumping ride will keep your heart racing and is best in spring, summer and fall once the ice and snow from the winter have ceased.

The beautiful forest and mountain meadows of Palomar Mountain State Park are in northern San Diego County on the west side of Palomar Mountain. Large pine, fir and cedar trees make the park one of the few areas in southern California with a Sierra Nevada-like atmosphere. Coniferous forests cover much of the 1,862 acres, in contrast to the dry lowlands surrounding the mountain.
