There’s nothing quite like packing your bags and hitting Highway 1 for a little road trip action (extra points if you rent a convertible). Not only are there tons of gorgeous vistas peppered along the Northern California coastline, but it also touts some of the freshest, under-the-radar bites you’ll ever chow down on. So, don't even think about pulling into the In-N-Out drive thru. 

Lucky for us, Sunset magazine has put together the ultimate guide to where to eat along the West Coast, from Washington to San Diego. Eating Up the West Coast, which hits shelves April 28, is packed with intel on the best grub spots — just in time for you to plan a solid Memorial Day itinerary!

We chatted with author Brigit Binns, who shared her favorite Northern California picks from the book and explained why they're must-hits. Be sure to pre-order a copy of the book now, 'cause you’re going to want to have this one handy for the entire summer. Who's ready to take a drive?
