The Rough Guide Map of California is the most comprehensive map to this spectacular destination. California is a hugely popular destination for independent travellers and fly-drive packages. The state is blessed with fine weather, sweeping beaches, a dramatically picturesque interior and the best-known coastal freeway in North America, Route 1, connecting Los Angeles to San Francisco along the rugged coastline of Big Sur. The scale of 1:800,000 (1 inch: 12. 6 miles) provides enough detail to include even the minor roads whilst being manageable for use in the car or whilst walking.
