I know what you are saying.

In California, you can see most of the Pacific Coast Highway One in Southern California along the beaches and coastal towns. You can see them along the route up in Ventura County, Central Coast along Big Sur, Carmel, Monterey, Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay and Pacifica. You can see the continuation of the name, along northern area of San Francisco all the way up to Eureka.

However, some will tell you that there are portions of the highway that is called other names.
I have heard of Cabrillo Highway, Ventura Highway and some portions of the Highway that is blended in with the US Highway 101.

In California, you can see a great map here:

In Oregon, you can see that it is called Highway 101 most of the way (?)

Pacific Coast Scenic Byway - Oregon Map

and in Washington: only a portion of the highway is called: Pacific Coast Scenic Byway - Washington

I supposed you can called it a myth that it is a PC Highway One or because most of the Highway run along the Pacific Coast so they are called the Pacific Coast Highway.


: Growing up, I was always told that PCH ran in some form from Northern Canada all the way down to Tierra del Fuego. I have a little trouble believing this, but does anyone know how far PCH actually DOES run?
