Trying to find the fastest (not most scenic) route from Santa Clara, CA to Big Sur, CA.
Directions from Mapquest:
I-880 -> CA-17 S -> CA-1 S
Directions from Yahoo Maps:
I-880 -> US-101 -> CA-156 W -> CA-1 S
They both estimate 1 hour and 52 minutes. Are the routes really that similiar that it doesn't really matter? Looking for advice from those that have driving this route before.
