How to do California central coast

Jump to last reply

Plan to spend approx 11 days on central coast of CA in late October.

First question: To visit the area between Monterey and Santa Barbara, would you suggest flying into LAX or SFO? We do not plan to spend any time in either city except for final night before flight home. Arriving in afternoon, is the traffic any worse from LAX heading north or SFO heading south?

Would like to spend 2-3 nights in 3 or 4 places. We prefer B&B's or unique places, such as Asilomar, rather than chain hotels or resorts. Any suggestions of several towns to stay in? Don't have to stay in Monterey, but perhaps in one of the towns a bit inland, such as Ojai, Santa Ynez, San Luis Obispo or Paso Robles. Really don't know much about these towns so wonder if any would be a good base for a few days. Maybe someone knows a "hidden" town in the area.

We hope to just kick back, enjoy the wine, scenery, short hikes, anything agricultural (markets, harvesting, festivals) perhaps visit Pinnacles, if October is a good time of year to go there.

Open to all suggestions.
