The Palms to Pines Scenic Byway is another fabulous local highway with lots of amazing views. In fact, it is a great place to escape for a few hours for a beautiful drive or to take the whole family on a road-trip exploring the great California nature. So head out on your own or bring along the whole gang and enjoy another of California’s beautiful scenic byways.
Located just half an hour south of Los Angeles, the Palms to Pines Scenic Byway is very close and easy to get to. Once you arrive though, you can have hours of fun exploring the highway and all the different scenic stops along the way. Start your trip by visiting the National Monument Visitor Center, located at the east end of the byway. You can get a lot of great information about all the different valleys and mountains you will be passing.
As you drive along the highway, you’ll be passing through several areas that are near Native American reservations and you’ll find a lot of overlooks and areas to pull over and get some amazing photographs. If you are in the mood to venture out of your car, stop off at Lake Hemet for fishing or a beautiful lake-side stroll.
You’ll also pass through the community of Idllwild with lots of great shops and plenty of restaurants to cater to any craving. So feel free to park and get out, stretch your legs and explore, or just stay in your car and enjoy a stunningly beautiful drive.
With a drive this beautiful, you’ll want to enjoy it from a truly comfortable and luxurious ride. Make sure to head out in the S65 AMG Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. Since you’ll be driving around a lot, you’ll be so thankful to have the elegance and comfort that only a Mercedes-Benz can provide.
