California Road Trip

Jump to last reply


My husband and I are planning a last minute road trip to California this August and I'm looking for intinerary and hotel suggestions. We're flying into San Francisco, then doing Napa, Yosemite, then Monterey, and driving up the coast to San Francisco. We're looking for ideas on itinerary, and suggestions for hotels that are budget friendly (ideally $150 or less?).

Here is our itinerary so far:

Day 1 to Day 2: Fly into SFO, spend two nights.

Day 3: Drive to Sonoma or Napa (suggestions on which is cheaper to stay?) Stay one night.

Day 4-6: Drive to Yosemite. Spend three nights.

Day 7: Drive to Monterey or Santa cruz (suggestions?). We've done Monterey before, so we're open to other places. We just want to stay somewhere along the coast that is budget friendly.

Day 8: Drive up the coast, stay somewhere in a city along here, closer to San Fran (suggestions?)

Day 9: Drive and fly out of SFO.

Thanks for your input :)
