Most Romantic Drives in California to Share with Your Sweetheart

Valentine's Day might look a little different in 2021. Still, we are fortunate to live in such a picturesque state -- California is home to so many beautiful landscapes, ranging from the snowy mountains in Tahoe to southern California's breathtaking beaches. The team at Carlsbad Auto Service can't think of a better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than spending time with two of your loves: your vehicle and your sweetheart. 

The team at Carlsbad Auto Service has put together a list of the most romantic drives in California to share with your sweetheart: 

  1. Angeles Crest Highway: This magnificent mountain route begins along California State Route 2 and is approximately 66 miles long. This drive takes you through the San Gabriel Mountains and Angeles National Forest. Expect relaxing and twisting turns. 
  2. Pacific Coast Highway: Pacific Coast Highway is a classic. Even though we have all been on the PCH at some point, we have not traveled the highway in its entirety, as it stretches along Highway 1, connecting Northern California to Southern California, for 655 miles. We can't help but snap some photos of the stunning ocean views. 
  3. Palm to Pines Scenic Byway: This picturesque drive starts in the Palm Desert and ends in San Juan Capistrano. If you plan your trip accordingly, you can catch the beautiful sunset streak across the sky. 
  4. Live Oak Canyon Road: For a drive that makes you want to roll down your window and breathe in the country air, this one is for you. You can escape everyday life with this drive, as you will pass by old farm houses and hills. 
  5. Sunrise Highway to Mt. Laguna: This drive is located in San Diego and will take you toward the summit of Mt. Laguna. After this drive out in the country, we think you’ll have a hard time returning to civilization. 
  6. Ortega Highway: If you are looking to experience the lush beauty of Southern California between Lake Elsinore and San Juan Capistrano, this route is for you. 

We want to make sure you and your loved one can focus on the beautiful landscape during your drive and not any auto repair issues. The team at Carlsbad Auto Service encourages you to bring your vehicle to our facility. We will perform a thorough inspection to ensure your Valentine's Day drive is both smooth and safe. Schedule an appointment today for preventative maintenance. We look forward to seeing you at our shop, located at 3181 Tyler Street, Carlsbad, CA 92008.
