    Default Pacific Highway from San Diego to San Francisco

    Hi there.

    I'm looking to travel up the Pacific Highway (Highway 1) with my wife in early September. We're British and neither of us has been to the US before (although my wife will have been there for a month by September). I'm flying into San Diego from the UK, spending a couple of nights there and then we're going to drive up the coast to San Francisco, spending a few nights there before flying back to the UK. We've got about 5 days/nights to travel up the coast and I was just hoping to get an idea of what we can do on the way up. I've looked into a few things but I thought it might be a better idea to ask everyone on here. We're both 28 if that makes any difference to your advice!

    Many thanks in advance,

    Default Some Highlights

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Just some of what I consider the best attractions of that drive would include Balboa Park in San Diego before you even hit the road, Mission San Juan Capistrano, Balboa Island if you're a fan of the OC, Hearst Castle, 17-Mile Drive, Monterey Bay Aquarium, walking tour of Monterey, and of course all the parks and beaches along the way.

    The following photo shot by member Roadie, depicts the only place on the west coast where a waterfall falls directly into the ocean -- well worth the short 5 minute walk to see...
