California Coast Trip Ideas

Jump to last reply

My husband is attending a conference in San Diego so we are taking the opportunity to take our 10 year old son and explore the California Coast. We are traveling for 3 weeks ending up in San Francisco. We enjoy activities such as hiking, cycling, canoeing and also the arts, great wine and spas and photography. I would appreciate comments on the itinerary.... I am not exactly sure what there is to do in North Cal but I do want to see the redwoods and if we are staying too few nights or too many nights in various places......

Jul 28 - Aug 1 San Diego
Aug 2 - Santa Monica (visit the Getty)
Aug 3 - Santa Ynez
Aug 4 - Cambria - (Hearst Castle visit)
Aug 5 - Carmel
Aug 6, 7 and 8 - Mendocino
Aug 9 .... not sure where to stay/go from Mendocino - maybe move our Garberville dates here?
Aug 10 - 11 Garberville
Aug 12 - 14 Sonoma
Aug 15 - 18 San Francisco (we leave morning of the 18th)

If you have ideas of some fun things to do that would also keep our 10 year old interested.... I am thinking of going ballooning in Sonoma, kayaking the shore and caves in Mendocino and possibly cycling there also. Would love to go hiking in the giant redwoods.......
