This is a free, self-guided tour along Highway 1, to be enjoyed at your own leisurely pace. Yellow directional signs will help along the way and the free brochure with a description of each artist and a detailed map make it a cinch to find the studios you will most want to see. (The map is a must to visit Sea Ranch artists since signage is limited).
