SF to Big Sur road trip

Jump to last reply

We are going to be in SF next May for at least 3 weeks, touring the area and visiting our daughter. We are not rushed for time at all. We like culture, art, quirky places, the outdoors, music performances and hiking. My husband has health problems so we can't go in for long or difficult hikes. We want to rent a car and travel down highway 1 as far as the Big Sur at a leisurely pace. Would 4 days be enough? I was thinking 4 nights / 5 days taking into account driving and the fact that my husband needs an afternoon rest. Is there a place where we could stay at a hotel and use it as a hub to explore the area?
My daughter can help us with the sites but she is more of a "let's camp out in nature" person and we are definitely "hotel room" people.
