  1. Default Any advice on a West Coast trip?

    Wow, what a great site! Hello everyone. Can anyone help? Me and husband are going to take what seems to be a popular trip - LA to San Fran and back to LA again over 15 days in September - but I'm finding it hard to gauge times and distances. Would anyone mind casting their eye over what we've got planned so far?

    Day 1. LA - arrive middayish. Stay for 2 nights.
    Day 3. Set off to Santa Barbara, stay for one night, then visit Sideways wine country for a night.
    Day 5. Move up the coast - Cambria - Big Sur - Monterey/Carmel - ?
    Day 8 or so. Arrive San Fran for 2/maybe 3 nights
    Day 10. Yosemite for 2 nights.
    Day 12. Drive back down - stay ??? - towards Vegas.
    Day 13. Vegas for a night
    Day 14. Drive back to LA for a night
    Day 15. Home.

    Are we missing anything? Does it make sense?! How long does it take to drive from San Fran to Yosemite? And can anyone suggest anywhere good to stay after Yosemite and heading down towards Las VEgas - or is it feasible to do this in one long drive?

    Any thoughts welcome. Thank you so much.

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Just in case you missed some of the threads on this route -- look at this list and be sure to look at the bottom of this page for more ideas.
    Day 1. LA - arrive middayish. Stay for 2 nights.
    Look at this overview as a way of planning your time here.
    Day 3. Set off to Santa Barbara, stay for one night, then visit Sideways wine country for a night.
    There is a brand new guide book to the 230 wineries on the California Central Coast and I will be writing a review in the next month -- look for it here!
    Day 12. Drive back down - stay ??? - towards Vegas.
    I would go over Tioga Pass and stay at either Mammoth Lakes or Bishop
    Day 13. Vegas for a night
    Day 14. Drive back to LA for a night
    Day 15. Home
    The rest of the trip sounds ideal!
    How long does it take to drive from San Fran to Yosemite?
    It depends upon what time you can escape the urban crush around San Francisco -- but it is about 3-4 hours.
