Highway 101 is one of America’s most beloved scenic highways, weaving around epic mountainsides and hugging the beautiful Pacific Coast. Near the peaceful towl of Florence, Oregon, visitors can treat themselves to a visit to the Sea Lion Caves. The caves are the largest accessible cavern in America. Visitors take an elevator down through the mountain to the internal caverns, and walk through trails to the seaside rocks where hundreds of Stellar Sea Lions meet to pair together and raise their pups. Other fauna include sea gulls and even whales meeting off the shore for food and mating. It is truly an up-close look at nature.
