    Hi AZBuck
    I am planning a driving trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Any good tips . I hear Hwy #1 is worth taking? Is it dangerous? Which portion is "the best" since I have time restrictions?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I've moved your posts to their own thread, so we can talk about the specifics of your trip.

    The bad news is that you don't really appear to have time to do the coast. There is no part of the highway that is dangerous, but nearly the entire route is very curvy and slow going. Its really a trip that requires 2 full days.

    The most famous part of the trip is the big sur section, from Monterey to Cambria, however, even if you use US-101 for the rest of the trip, it would still be about a 16 hour drive. Even that would be at a pace where you make very few stops - and if you don't have time to stop to enjoy the drive, you might as well save it for another day.

    There really are only 2 choices for SF to LA in one day - I-5 or US-101. Although it does take longer, I'd much prefer 101.
