In October, I am flying in from Hawaii with my boyfriend, picking up my parents and dog in SF and driving to Vegas to meet BF's parents in Vegas.
1) Is october still too warm for a dog in Vegas?
2) going to drive down in 2 days and back up in 2 days spending one night each way in either SLO, Santa Barbara, or Bakersfield (If I take HWY 5). Suggestions on if I should take HWY 5 for one of the routes instead of 101 both ways.
3) If I stay in SLO/Pismo, to get to Vegas, should I continue south on 101 or is there a good, not windy more direct route?
4) any suggestions on dog friendly hotels in SLO/Pismo/SB/Bakersfield/Vegas. Would like a hotel that's not too expensive but not a dump either.
Thanks in advance for your help!
