One wk CA PCH Highway 1 itinerary ?

Jump to last reply

In August, one wk Sat to Sun, arrive LAX and depart SFO. We have to be in Half Moon Bay at end of trip Fri and Sat nights. Mainly see this trip as a PCH trip (south to north) and not venturing inland. I have Fodor's new Calif 2012 guidebook.

Would appreciate suggestions on intinerary and lodging. We prefer outdoor and scenic more than museums, more casual and fun than fancy dining, and B&Bs or quaint motels are okay (e.g., will NOT be staying at Ritz Carlton in HMB). With exception of HMB at end, we are flexible. Given limited time, we're not set on San Francisco and easily could eliminate it if folks recommend adding more stops/days into the PCH journey up to HMB. Wondering also if any of the places would be good two-night stays, particularly if we eliminate SF.

We're not interested in Hearst Castle so I'm not including that. Mostly we'd enjoy scenic driving and stopping, beach and state park scenic walks and small town exploring.

Rough itinerary, with overnight locations shown and distance traveled that day:
Sat - LAX to Santa Barbara (110 mi)
Sun - San Simeon (150) - should we add a day in here, maybe overnight in SLObispo?
Mon - Carmel (90) - should we add a day in here?
Tue - 17 Mile Drive?; Santa Cruz (50)
Wed & Thu - San Fran (80) - (maybe eliminate SF?)
Fri & Sat - Half Moon Bay
Sun - depart SFO

Thanks in advance.
