Driving down the California Coast - SF to LA

Jump to last reply

Message: Hi. My boyfriend and I plan to fly into San Francisco and drive down the coast to LA the 3rd week in July. We basically have from Friday to the following Friday (as we'll fly back from LA on Saturday. He's never been to SF before so I figure Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in SF. Can anyone suggest an itinerary for Monday through Friday. I'm thinking to spend at least one night in Monterey or Carmel, and somewhere near Hearst Castle another night. I'm interested in seeing the Big Sur area and possibly staying in Santa Barbara that Thursay. Friday is reserved for LA. Can anyone give insights into logistics in terms of what to see, where to stay, how long to drive, etc. Thanks.
