Hi! This will be our first family roadtrip up the coast. We are looking to do this as our Christmas present to each other. Would love any suggestions for places that are a must see and any recommendations for lodging. We will be renting a car and starting our trip Christmas day and returning on New Years Eve. Also, we are debating on if we should drive up to SF and fly back to SD or just drive round trip. Thanks for any and all of your help!!
