SF and Central Coast Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are planning an 11 night/10 day trip to Northern CA/Central Coast late July and early Aug and wanted to get some opinions on our itinerary. 2 adults, 3 kids (10-18)

Sat: arrive late evening from east coast--stay near SFO
Sun: get car, take leisurely drive down Rt 1, spend night in Cambria (best western Fireside). No formal plans but to get to Cambria
Monday: Explore area, Hearst Castle, night 2 in Cambria
Tues: work our way towards Monterey. No formal plans but to get there. Spend night in Monterey (marriott--on points)
Wed/Thurs: Monterey (aquarium, whale tour) etc
Friday: drive to SF for 5 nights. Stay at Courtyard Fisherman's Wharf (points). We plan on doing a day trip or two from there. Muir Woods, maybe the Napa area (though with the kids we won't be doing much wine tasting).

The kids love scenery and taking pictures so I'm thinking they will get a lot of fantastic things to see! I'm the only one who has been this area at all.

I am hoping this won't be too stressful of a trip. I'm not wild about 4 hotels in 11 nights but I'm not sure how to avoid it. We had no flexibility with the flight due to us using miles. We are using Marriott points for some of the hotels. Is Fisherman's Wharf a good area to stay with kids? Or is there a better area? Keep in mind we are limited to Marriotts.

Thoughts? Are we going to run ourselves ragged?

Thanks.
