California: Sonoma/ San Fran/ Carmel

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I, both mid-twenties, are planning a trip in mid-October to Northern California. We are flying into SFO on Thursday morning and taking the red eye home on Tuesday evening - meaning we have six full days and five nights. Our flights are booked and we are looking into accommodations next. This is what I am thinking - do you think this is reasonable? Too much driving? Any suggestions are much appreciated!

Day 1 - Arrive at SFO at 11:30 a.m., rent car, drive to Sonoma, spend day there, do wine tastings, go out to dinner and stay overnight
Day 2 - Leave Sonoma and have lunch in Sausalito, arrive in SFO and sightsee, stay over night
Day 3 - Sightsee all day in SFO, stay over night
Day 4 - Leave SFO and take scenic road to Carmel, stopping in Half Moon Bay, go out to dinner in Carmel, stay over night
Day 5 - Drive down to Big Sur for the day and hike at Julia Phieffer Burns park, eat dinner either in Big Sur or Carmel or somewhere in between, stay over night in Carmel
Day 6 - Explore Carmel/ Monterey/ any suggestions? Leave for SFO by 6 p.m.

I really appreciate any feedback on places to see, routes to take and places to eat/ drink. We don't mind driving as long as its scenic.
