Driving time from Santa Cruz to San Simeon

Jump to last reply

Will be driving from Santa Cruz to San Simeon on Hwy 1 later this month on a Monday. We have reservations for a tour of Hearst Castle at 2 p.m. - and will be staying at a hotel in Cambria that night, before heading to San Diego the next day for a family reunion.

What is a reasonable travel time for getting from Santa Cruz to San Simeon? We will probably want to stop for lunch - but nothing too fancy. We've been to Carmel and Pt. Lobos and Big Sur, so no need to make extra time for stops along the way.

I know the morning traffic along Hwy 1 before we get to Monterey can be congested, so maybe we will need to make allowances for that, unless we can leave after morning rush hour.
