San Francisco Trip Itinerary-Help

Jump to last reply

Hello, for my boyfriend's 30th birthday I am planning a trip out to California to celebrate. I have an outline of our days there and where we plan to go but would love some advice as whether to skip some things or add something else.

Day 1- Fly into San Francisco early morning
Day 2- explore San Francisco
Day 3-rent a car and travel over to Yosemite National Park
Day 4- Yosemite
Day 5- Yosemite/Sequoia National Park ( his birthday )
Day 6- Head to Napa Valley
Day 7- Drive down the coast to Monterrey/ Carmel
Day 8- Fly home


Are we trying to fit in too much in a short time or is that enough time to see the highlights and get a feel of this beautiful area? Is the drive down the coast a better way to spend our time instead of staying extra days in Napa Valley? Also on our fifth day there we will be celebrating his birthday near Yosemite National park, is there any restaurant suggestions for a nicer dinner we can splurge on for his birthday? Thank you!!!
