Hey. I'm going to be relocating to California from Connecticut sooner rather than later so I'm going to be packing up my little Civic and driving west and I'm flying blind. I'm going to go to AAA (gotta use the membership for something) to get routed but I wanted to know what's out there, where's the best place to stay and all of that fun stuff. I'll be traveling to the Santa Cruz area of California, Central Coast and I don't want to take too much time, no more than a week. I know I'm driving right in between places like Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon so is there anything to see between those two places? I know I'll be coming close to Vegas so would that be a close stop? Any tips or anything like that would be helpful. At the moment I don't know if I'm traveling alone or not. While I'm scared to travel alone, I've done it in Europe so if I can get over that, I can handle traveling within my own country that doesn't have a language barrier. So yeah, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
