Please help plan our trip to San Fran, Sonoma, Carmel and Big Sur

Jump to last reply

Hello All! My husband and I are in our early 30's from NYC and we have a wedding to attend in Big Sur in May. Since we've never been to California, we would like to visit a few places while we're out there. Below is our tentative itinerary. Can you tell me if it makes sense logistically and if we're spending enough nights/days in each place? We can stay an extra night or two if we need to. Also, are we missing any important places? This is my first post on Fodor's and I greatly appreciate your help!!
Thanks!

Sunday - arrive and sleep in San Fran
Monday - do a day bus tour of Sonoma but sleep in San Fran
Tuesday - tour San Fran
Wednesday - tour San Fran
Thursday - rent a car and drive down pacific coast 1 and do the 17 mile drive, sleep in Carmel
Friday - tour Carmel, stop at Point Lobos, then drive down for rehearsal dinner and sleep in Big Sur
Saturday - wedding in Big Sur
Sunday - tour and sleep Big Sur
Monday - drive back to San Fran and fly out at night
