Most people equate California summer vacations with sunny Southern California, but it's in the more northerly parts of the state where you get the most gorgeous coastlines. Big Sur is easily the state's most celebrated stretch of seaside when it comes to sheer natural beauty, it's also world-famous, with limited — and generally expensive — lodging options.

The University of Oregon (the birthplace of Nike footwear) is located here, which means that things get a little less crowded during the summer months as students pack up and head home for the summer. It's a vibrant and fun place to be year-round, with plenty of attractions as well as special summer events.
