Have a few questions regarding our upcoming trip to California.
dates are Sep 2 - 14 into SAN and out through SFO.
Sep 2-5 - SD
Sep 5-9 - LA (Santa Monica or possibly West Hollywood)
Sept 9-10 - drive along coast with stopover in SLO
Sept 10-13 -SF
Sept 13-14 - Napa-Yountville then fly out...
Now the questions...
-between LA and SF, we would like to drive through Malibu, Santa Barbara, SLO and Monterey. We don't necessarily need long stops at each , but would like to see Hearst Castle and the Monterey Aquarium. Is the one night stop in SLO sufficient enough?
-From Napa or possibly Santa Rosa how many hours would it take to get to SFO. Flight out would be at 12:30pm. We're just not sure how to account for traffic.
-What's the weather like in early september, woud like to rent a convertible for the drive, but if it's too hot.. not sure the premium for a convert would be worth it.
thank you kindly to anyone that can help!
