Thank you everyone for your advice. This is the new itinerary and just wanted to see what people thought!

Day 1 - Fly in late to SF- Stay SF
Day 2 - San Francisco
Day 3 - San Francisco
Day 4 - Drive to Monteray/Carmel early (stopping to see Santa Cruz)
- Stay Carmel
Day 5 - Explore Monteray/Carmel
- Stay Carmel
Day 6 - Leave Carmel to drive to Santa Barbara (stopping in Cambria, SLO, Pismo)
- Stay Santa Barbara
Day 7 - Explore Santa Barbara
- Stay Santa Barbara
Day 8- Leave early to head to La Jolla (stopping in Santa Monica, Malibu)
- Stay La Jolla
Day 9 - Explore La Jolla and head to SanDiego (stopping at Mission/And/or Pacific Beach)
- Stay San Diego
Day 9 - Explore San Diego - Stay San Diego
Day 10 - Explore San Diego - San Diego
Day 11 - Home early

My two main questions are:
I took out staying in Pismo (anyone feel like we should stay there?)
If we get to Santa Barbara late on the first night I thought we should stay one more night - Or we could spend the day in Santa Barbara and drive to Santa Monica at night (Any recs?

Thanks again!!!
