* Here is where I go into my pedantic mode. Frequently on this and other forums people will refer to the entire stretch of CA1, the coastal highway, as "Pacific Coast Highway" (AKA PCH). That designation only applies to a portion in Southern California; up North you'll get funny looks if you refer to it that way. Portions of it are designated as the Cabrillo Highway (Central Coast) or Shoreline Highway (North Coast). Generally, outside the LA area the most common term you'll hear is "Route 1" or "Highway 1"
