The show notes provided by Reisen Reisen vividly detail the experience of discovering the natural and cultural richness of California. They bolster the Golden State as the best place to encounter spectacular beaches, mountain vistas resembling masterpiece paintings, and an abundance of local food along Highway 1 – which they call the world’s most scenic coastal route.
