Buck1017- yes, 1 and 101 are different routes. 1 is right on the water from the Bay Area down, while 101 takes a more inland route through that corridor.

Jennifer Aniston is more important in California than any other person? I mean at least Jerry Brown was the governor. There aren't thousands of other things you could put in there other than a Hollywood actor. 29 Palms, San Diego Zoo, Candlestick Park, Alcatraz, San Andreas fault line, Sequoia National Park, Redwood State Park, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Grauman's Chinese Theater
