Itinerary suggestions/advice for driving from SF to LA in 3d/2n

Jump to last reply

Finally getting close to our trip to the states and have firmed up our itinerary for the driving portion from SF to LA in December - we arestaying in both SF and LA before and after the road trip portion. Just wanted to have some opinion regarding our itinerary we have planned whether it's too ambitious or we are missing anything major. We're planning to complete the drive from SF to LA in 3 days and 2 night.

Day 1. SF -> Half Moon Bay -> Pacific Grove to see butterflies -> 17 mile drive -> Pt Lobos -> Overnight in Carmel

Day 2. Carmel -> Pffeifer Big Sur National Park -> Brunch/Lunch at Nepenthe -> Julia Pfeiffer Burns Park & McWay Falls -> Piedras Blancas to see elephant seals -> Hearst Castle -> Overnight at San Luis Obispo

Day 3. San Luis Obispo -> Malibu -> Arrive in LA

This is what we are planning to do - I know day 2 seems super packed but some of those stops are just for some photo ops. Any suggestions for changes to the itinerary - what to leave out or add in.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions :)
