I'm a newbie who just discovered this forum today. Seems like a wonderful resource! I'm hoping some of you can give me some ideas...
I'm looking into doing a 5 day road trip starting from San Francisco around the 3rd week of April. Planning with a good friend and we've decided we'd like to head south towards warmer weather. It would be nice to hit a beach or two and overall looking for an itinerary that is enjoyable and relaxing. All I can come up with is possibly going to Santa Barabara (never been), San Diego or maybe the Grand Canyon (never been).
Someone recently told me about a place called Catalina Island, off the CA coast near San Diego. Has anyone been there or know anything about it?
Looking for any ideas! I would love to either stick to hotels or also throw in a day or two of camping along the way.
