My wife and I are planning a SF to LA roadtrip in August this year for our 1 year anno. We are prob flying into SF and have 12 days to split up the rest of the trip. We are both into restaurants, shops, hotels on/near the water. We arnt really the outdoor/camping type. So far we found out a decent amount of info on SF but are looking for the other spots inbetween SF and LA. We noted NAPA while in SF, Monterey/carmel, san luis obispo, santa barbara/moinca not sure. We really dont want to spend that much time in LA. We plan to do LA- San Diego in the future.
We are looking for advice on how to split up the time? If there are any spots that are must see that we are missing? Better spots to stay? and Hotels if possible?
we appreciate your help!!
