My husband and I are planning to fly into San Francisco in October or the 1st half of November and travel parts of California. This is our proposed itinerary and we would welcome any comments and suggestions on routes to take, places to stay and to visit.
Also, is early November a bad time to take this trip? Seems from my internet research that there is a lot of rain during this time.
San Francisco (1 night)
San Francisco down to Monterey/Carmel via Pacific Highway (2 nights in Monterey/Carmel - any suggestions welcome)
Carmel - Yosemite (4 nights: would it be a good idea to break the drive from Carmel to Yosemite and stay somewhere en route for the 1st night?)
Yosemite - Lake Tahoe (3 nights)
Lake Tahoe - Napa Valley (1 night)
Napa Valley - San Francisco (3 nights)
