    we will be travelling down Highway 1 from SF to Vegas & want to go as far as Santa Barbara but avoid LA. Looking for best route, any advice?

    Sorry, just had to say that. There are several routes for you to consider.

    The road around Lake Casitas is a little bit hilly, (county road 150) but lovely views and you could stop for a coffee or tea or whatever in Ojai. The only down side is that the area has grown population-wise with outsufficient growth of infrastructure and so the traffic might be a bit tough.

    In any case, eventually you will reach CA-126 at Santa Paula and I would proceed to the east on CA-126 until you reach Castiac Junction at I-5. Your route east from there really depends upon how much time you have. If you have time, you might consider driving some of the <a href = "">Ridge Route<a/> or take the Lake Hughes Rd and visit <a href = "">the Rock Inn<a/>. Eventually you will reach CA-14 (see below).

    Or you could take the Magic Mountain parkway and join CA-14 headed east, pick up Pearlblossom Highway (CA-138) and proceed to I-15 and then north to Las Vegas. <a href = "">Click here for some ideas<a/>.

    without driving like Nigel Mansell, how long would you give yourself to do this section?
