Best Bus Route if You Have Time (2010)

Orange County Transit Authority Route 1

Driving down Pacific Coast Highway is an iconic California experience . . . that's also overrated. After all, you're supposed to be watching the road, right? A bus ride is a more-leisurely way of taking in this most picturesque, vibrant stretch of road, seaside and shopping in the county. Route 1 stretches from San Clemente to Long Beach, and while it takes a lot longer to make that trip than in a car, it's obviously one of those treks in which the destination doesn't matter so much.
