West Coast - 12 days

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodors,

I am travelling from Sydney to the west coast in May 2014 with my husband and some friends for my husbands 40th.

We fly into and out of LA with 12 days on the ground.

We want to go up the coast road towards Big Sur, Monterey, head into Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Napa, San Fran and fly back to LA. Too much?? We are all pretty active and want to be able to relax and not be in the car too much. I'd love to hike and swim as much as we can. I really want to do a mix of accommodation levels, average and splurge here and there along the way. Any stand out places we need to stay at or things we just can't miss out on. I've done LA before and not really fussed about hanging there I'd rather get straight on the road.

Looking forward on your tips on planning our trip.

many thanks in advance!
