Where in California?

Jump to last reply

We have an opportunity to go to California in March or April to see a band that I really enjoy. This band is playing at smaller venues in smaller cities in California. My husband and I have never been to California, and we are having a hard time settling on a concert location because we are not at all familiar with anything in these areas.

Location choices for the concert: Solana Beach, Agoura Hills, San Juan Capistrano, San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, Sacramento, or Petaluma.

I have consulted a map, and realize that the locations are spread from close to San Diego all the way up to the San Francisco area. We would like to base our stay in an area that is close to a concert venue, and branch out from there. We will be flying from the east coast, and will rent a car.

If you had a choice of these locations, what would you recommend for a 50-ish couple for a short (5-6 day) vacation? We enjoy wine/wineries, beer/breweries, scenery, history, and good food, etc.

Thanks for your help!
