CA- Central Coast & L.A. areas

Jump to last reply

We have two business meetings in California next month- one in San Luis Obispo (SBP) and the other in Santa Monica.

I'm trying to decide whether we should fly into SBP and book our hotel stay there for the whole duration (5 days), using it as a homebase for sightseeing and to drive south for our other meeting; OR to fly into SBP, stay there for 2 or 3 nights, drive south, stay a few days in the Santa Monica area, and then fly out of SBA or LAX.

We have family driving down from SF to join us, so I was thinking it would be more convenient for them to meet up with us in San Luis Obispo, and then hop in with us when we head south.

They've been having trouble with their car, so we thought we'd suggest sharing the cost of a rental car. They could get the car in SF, drive down the coast, and pick us up at the airport.

Some of the things we might like to do during our visit: walk along beaches, hike any nearby trails, have a picnic, drive by Hearst Castle, drive thru L.A., walk down Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Any thoughts/suggestions? Thank you in advance!
