The Best Coast: A Road Trip Atlas


Item # 9781632171740

Everyone knows, hands down, that the best coast is indeed the West Coast! Now you can discover how incredible the Pacific Coastline of the USA is in this quirky illustrated book featuring the historic routes up and down the coastline by showcasing roadside attractions, beloved landmarks, hidden history, and other offbeat delights for armchair travelers and road-trippers alike. 

From the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State down to the sandy beaches of San Diego, California, you'll journey the historic Highways 101 and 1 (the PCH) along with the slightly inland route of Highway 99. These routes highlight the natural beauty along the shore while also connecting the traveler to major cities and other attractions. Some of the side trip destinations include Catalina Island, Joshua Tree National Park, Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks, Crater Lake National Park, the Columbia River Gorge, Mount Rainier National Park, the San Juan Islands, and Vancouver, BC. 

If you’re looking for more metropolitan adventures, the book also features in-depth city guides to San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver B.C.. Chock-full of unusual facts, hidden history, and Americana, this one-of-a-kind road trip through California, Oregon, and Washington tells a story of the diversity and depth that created the West Coast we know and love today, showcasing both the ever-changing present and vestiges of the past for those who slow down to look.
