Amtrak from San Diego to Monterey or car rental

Jump to last reply

I am going to be in San Diego for a wedding and then planning to go to Monterey to visit a friend. I am considering taking a train - interested in hearing from those familiar with Amtrak in California - would it be a scenic trip. Or I am considering renting a car and driving up the coast - would appreciate any comments on that. I have time - not in a hurry to get anywhere and I don't mind driving.

If I rent a car, I know that one way drop off charges can be quite steep so would consider driving up one way and back the other so that I can fly in and out of San Diego. I would drive up the coast one way but interested in hearing about any other way back that might take me by some interesting sights.

Thanks so much
Pam
