King City is a city in the central region of California between San Jose and San Luis Obispo. Considered the mid-way point between Central and Southern California, King City is both a popular pit-stop for drivers, and a nice little town to visit.
King City is on Highway 101, one of California's main interstates roughly 3 hours north of Santa Barbara and 3 hours south of San Francisco Bay Area. It is home to the local Highway Patrol, so watch your speed even if just passing by.
Greyhound buses stop in town.
To find the 'real' town, hop off the freeway on Canal Street and go east to where it dead-ends on Broadway.
To get back on the freeway, continue south on Broadway until it dead-ends in First Street, and circle west back to the freeway.
