The Pacific Coast Highway, also known as State Route 1, is among the most celebrated state highways in the United States. The Pacific Coast Highway, or PCH, traces the coast of California between Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. While much more direct and faster routes exist further inland, like US-101 and Interstate 5, the PCH is a slower-paced, scenic alternative. Along the route, you can find many California landmarks, like the coastline of Big Sur and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Revisit your travels along this famous highway with our Pacific Coast Highway guide sign. We’ve created it according to the precise California standards for freeway signs used in 1958 and 1959. This is a transitional style that was in use while California worked to conform to the then-new Interstate standards. It uses the same fonts and general layout used throughout the latter half of the 20th century, but retains the black background of prior issues. This sign is a real blast from the past, a throw back to the old-school days of classic California signage.
Our Pacific Coast Highway guide sign is flat printed on heavy 14-gauge steel. It is a glossy, non-reflective sign, with a coating that’s so durable you can even install it outside. We’ve made it available in four sizes, from our 17½ × 7 in. miniature up to our colossal 80 × 32 in. size. We’ve also included two convenient mounting holes to make installation a breeze.
