We are driving down from San Jose area to San Diego on 12/23/2006
and have 2-3 days. We also have a 5 year old with us, so we'd like
to take frequent breaks ... every 2-3 hours.
Could you all please suggest great unlisted places to take breaks along
the way? We are aware of the Pebble Beach Drive, Hearst Castle,
Santa Barbara and Solvang. We're really looking for those spots where one can watch awesome coastal views, or (as we had found on our last kidless trip) a place that has seal families on the beach, or experience local oddities and culture.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
