Lucia on the Big Sur Coast
on the Big Sur coast California

Lucia is not even a village, just a restaurant, shop, and lodge, but it is the only commercial establishment on a long stretch of the central Big Sur coast. The location is stunning, though precarious.

There is an old "No Hippies Allowed" sign inside the store - I remember when it hung over the door, and they meant it.
