  1. Default West Coast Road Trip!

    Two friends and I will be driving down from San Francisco to San Diego during May. We are thinking of heading down Route 101. Does anyone know of some good points of interest along the way? Or any good/short detours? We have 10 days to complete the drive, so we are looking to fill out our trip. Also, any good campsite/motel recommendations would be appreciated.

    Default Odd Choice of Roads

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Nothing against US-101, but since you have the alternative of a world-class ocean-side drive in CA-1 from Monterey to Santa Barbara, you should really have a look at that. Points of interest along the way would include Monterey Bay Aquarium, the 17-Mile Drive in Pebble Beach, Heart's 'Castle' in San Simeon, Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, and Mission San Juan Capistrano - and that's just the short list. For an intriguing side trip, take county road G-16 inland from Carmel through Carmel Valley and Greenfield to G-15 north and finally CA-146 east to Pinnacles National Monument, and Mark would be sure to remind you to visit McWay Falls at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park.
