California Road Trip in April

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are looking to book tickets to California for his spring break in April (he teaches). We would be able to leave on Saturday morning and come back the following Sunday. The priorities for this trip are:
-Two days in LA. I grew up here and would love to show my husband around my old stomping grounds. We definately do not need to see any of the touristy attractions. This is more for nostalgic purposes. We have family in Santa Monica so would probably base ourselves in that area.
-A few days in the Napa Valley/Sonoma area. Neither of us have ever been and we would love to spend two or three days relaxing and touring vineyards.
-One day at the end of our trip in San Fran before we fly home. We only need one day as we have both been to San Fran many times.
-A road trip up the coast in between LA and Napa, stopping for one or two nights, to see Big Sur and maybe Monterey area. This is the the trickiest part for me. I know you could easily spend a week driving up the coast at a leisurely pace with multiple stops. However, we obviously don;t have the time to do that. Do you advise doing this drive with one overnight stop?

Our proposed itinerary:
Sat: Fly into LAX in the morning.
Sun: LA
Mon: Leave LA in the morning, drive up the coast stopping somwhere for the night.
Tues: Finish the drive up the coast, arriving in Napa.
Wed: Napa/Sonoma
Thurs: Napa/Sonoma
Fri: Napa/Sonoma
Sat: San Fran
Sun: Fly Home.

Feel free to critique and tell me this is crazy. Thanks!
