California coast: April

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to California next April and are looking for itinerary suggestions. We are in our twenties and would rather see a lot this trip and come back another time to spend more time in one area. We love the outdoors, walking/biking cities, beer/wine, hiking, etc. Our hope is to drive from San Francisco to San Diego in 8 days (fly in on a Friday morning and home on a Saturday).

Here is a rough outline of what we are thinking:
Friday + Saturday: San Francisco
Sunday: rent a car, drive to Napa/Sonoma and spend the night there
Monday: leave Sonoma, drive to Carmel. Spend the night there.
Tuesday: Carmel/Big Sur. Spend the night in Solvang or Santa Barbara.
Wednesday: Drive to LA/stay in LA. We just want a taste if LA, don't need much time. Should we even stay here?
Thursday: San Diego
Friday: San Diego
Saturday: fly home

Are there places worth skipping or staying longer? I've never been in April and I'm hoping the weather will be ok for a coast drive. Any hotel, sightseeing, restaurant recommendations?

Thanks in advance!
