California 2 week road trip honeymoon in August

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning on spending our honeymoon in California before flying off to Hawaii for another friend's wedding. We're thinking of flying into San Fran July 30th, spend 2 weeks, then fly to Hawaii on Aug 13th from LA but would like some advice on our itinerary! We are in our late 20's and love good food, wine, nightlife and culture so we think San Fran would be a good place to start. As it's our honeymoon, we do want to spend some time relaxing but also would like to be kept busy for most of the trip. We'll be on a beach anyways in Hawaii for the wedding so we don't want to spend tooo much time laying around, but would definitely love the views. I've put together a rough outline but would like to hear some thoughts from the experts!

4 nights - Fly in to San Francisco, pick up car

3 nights - Napa Valley/Sonoma

2 nights - Monterey/Carmel

2 nights - Big Sur

2 nights - Santa Barbara

2 nights - LA, fly out to Hawaii

What do you guys think of the distribution? We've been to LA and are not super keen on staying there too long, thought about omitting it altogether but it seems easiest for the flight to Hawaii right after.

Appreciate any help!!
