I'm undecided where to go, I'm either going up the PCH and hitting up Big Sur or I'm going to Sedona AZ. I know that everything's going to be packed in Big Sur but are there areas not too far from there that would not be too far from there? I usually bring a 2 man tent and the basics. Any areas not to park in? If I do this, I don't think I'm going to go up to Monterey this time around, I might consider around Pismo/Morro Bay if I get a room but I'm undecided.
This is the other trip I'm thinking about doing. Someone told me to stay in Jerome or Cottonwood vs. going into Sedona, there might be more options on places to stay or camp out too. I've been to Big Sur a few times and more or less know where to go, but as far as the Sedona area, I haven't been as of yet, so any good campgrounds, clean motels, or places to stop along the way would be helpful, thanks!
Any tips or info would be helpful.
