Big Sur with a toddler??

Jump to last reply

Hello! My family is planning a trip to the Monterey area in September 2011. We will be bringing our toddler along as well. He will be 17 months old then. We can only stay 5 nights/6 days. My question is do we have enough time to see San Francisco as well as the Big Sur region in that time? My family mainly wants to do the coastal drive from Monterey to the San Louis Obispo area, but if we have time I would like to see a few sights in San Francisco first. The main concern is not driving too much because our toddler will get restless.

Sights we would like to see: Monterey Aquarium, 17 mile drive, Huerst castle, Julie pheiffer burns state park, redwood trees.

So here is my questions..
1. Should we fly into San Francisco and spend a day or so there and then head towards Monterey? Or should we forget SF and just start in Monterey Bay area? Or fly into San Jose?

2. Is it foggy along the drive? If so, what is the best time of day to head out to avoid the fog?

3. Any other places we should stop along the way? We want to stop frequently because our little guy will get restless..so I imagine we will be pulling into the scenic lookouts alot!

4. Any other places that are fun for toddlers in the area? (He likes to play in sand and he will love the aquarium, but I'm not sure what else he would enjoy.)

Thanks!
