You know it’s time for a road trip to nature when your eyes start sporadically twitching from staring at a screen too much. Which is exactly what a couple of my best friends and I did last week. I hopped on board to Big Sur with Surfline Photo Editor Billy Watts and his girlfriend Jessica for an amazing week of camping, waves, hiking, and relaxing. It was the best vacation a burnt out college student like me could ask for right before finals. The sun blazed, the winds howled offshore, the beer never stopped flowing, and the beaches refreshed our tired bodies. To follow is a highlight reel of our trip, which really does not do the trip or Big Sur justice. The place is frikin’ amazing. Do yourself (and tired eyes) a favor and get there ASAP.

The Big Sur Taphouse has become my alltime favorite tavern in California. Frothy craft beer on tap, board games, and wifi lend a nice break from camplife. The deli next door has a great selection of craft beer, wine, and camp goods for prices much more reasonable than any other stores I’ve stopped into up there.
