8 Days in California in January

Jump to last reply

Two friends and I in our early twenties are looking to travel to CA this January for 8 days. We definitely want to go to San Francisco because we think we'd love the city, but also want to tour Berkeley and Stamford grad schools.

Then we want to spend the second half of our trip enjoying warmer weather in southern California where our friend who will be in L.A. can easily join us. We will NOT be renting a car because we can't drive. Any itinerary ideas? We are definitely interested in art, culture, museums, and walking tours of different neighborhoods, as well as relaxing. We probably wouldn't want to spend more than a few hours seeing the typical hollywood tourist stuff.

So far I've figured out that we should take amtrak from SF to LA - any suggested stops on the way? Any ideas of places in southern CA that have interesting things to do and don't require a car? Any tips on getting to Stanford and Berkeley and what to do around there?

Thanks!
