My husband and I are starting to plan a trip to California,and really need help with our itinerary.We are experienced travelers in Europe,but somehow don't seem to be able to put this together.SO...We fly into S.F and then have 7 days before we arrive in Santa Barbara to begin the "visiting family "portion of the trip which will conclude in L.A.We have been to S.F.,but nowhere else.I have read all the postings I can find and feel overwhelmed with the options.Based on my readings,I think we should drive from the airport to Mendocino for the first night,then wend our way down to Sonoma,staying in Healdsburg to sample a winery or two and a good restaurant.The next day,we head for Rt.1 .Should Half Moon Bay be our next night destination??I am overwhelmed with the choices and need help in deciding where our stops should be,both in terms of beauty and memorable lodgings.Restaurant suggestions would be much appreciated as well .We want to experience the exquisiteness and deliciousness of that coast..Your suggestions ??
