I'm planning on drive up Route 1 from San Diego to San Francisco in August. I only have 5 full days to make the trip and want to make sure I have at least 1 1/2 to 2 days in San Francisco. Does anyone have any suggestions for any 'must see' things along route 1, or any places to stay (on a budget) along the way??
This is my first trip to Southern California and I would like to stop in L.A. for a day as well. Any suggestions? Should I stay in LA or arrive in LA, spend the day, drive for a bit and then sleep elsewhere? ANY advice is welcome!
