Road Trip LA to San Francisco or vice versa

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have just started planning a 10 day trip to California. We have never been to CA and are in out early thirties. We will be flying into LA and out of San Francisco or viceversa, then renting a car to go sightseeing. We want to see Hollywood, Hwy 1, Nappa/Sonoma, San Francisco, Yosemite, and the Redwoods.

In order to fit in the National Parks, I think we should take 395 from one city to the other. Will we really be missing out on the HWY 1 experience? Is it even possible to see all the sites in 10 days? I know there is a redwood park right outside of San Francisco. Can we go see that and skip the Sequoia National Park?

Any hints would be appreciated. This is a big trip to plan!
