  1. Default Roadtrip advise need please?

    We are planning a trip to California etc at the end of November for 3 weeks.
    Our plan is
    4 nights San Francisco - pick up hire car
    2 nights Monterey
    then we aren't sure what to do.
    We want to visit Hearst Castle after Monterey and then drive to either Santa Barbara or Bakerfield or Barstow to overnight.(not sure which way to go or if we'll have enough time)
    2 nights Las Vegas
    1 night Grand Canyon (already booked)
    2 nights Sedona
    1 night Yuma
    3 nights San Diego
    3 nights Los Angeles
    Does that sound Ok. Any advise would be most appreciated.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You should have enough time to get from place to place on this trip, its a lot of driving, but you should be fine.

    As far as your day driving down the coast, you'll have to decide if you want to keep going as far as Santa Barabra or if you want to cut across towards Vegas. However, either way, you might be better off trying to make this a shorter day, perhaps stopping in Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo, or Paso Robles. You could make it to Bakersfield or Santa Barbara (Barstow would really be too far), however, you'd be less rushed if you plan to make this a shorter day, and give yourself more time the following day for the drive to vegas.
