California (San Francisco, Napa,Carmel/Monterey,Santa Barbara,San Diego)

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone,

I am looking to go to California this summer. Here is my current itinerary:

San Francisco - 3 nights
Napa Valley - 2 Nights
Carmel or Monterey - 2 Nights
Santa Barbara - 1 Night
Los Angeles - 1 Night
San Diego - 2 Nights

For Napa Valley - I can't figure out where is the best place to stay? We are wine lovers and heard Yountville might be the place to go... However, I also heard Calistoga and St. Helena is nice too. I just do not want to stay in downtown Napa. I want the rolling hills and wineries close by. Somewhere we can do biking would be nice too.

I am not sure whether I should stay in Monterey or Carmel.

We would like to do the 17 mile drive and Big Sur.

Any advice on my itinerary or places to stay would be appreciated. I have never done a trip like this before and we are going for our one year wedding anniversary at the end of August.

Thank you
