Hello, six of us (3 adults in our late 30s, one 20yo, 7 and 12yo kids) are planning our 7 day road trip from San Diego to San Francisco this July. We are going to arrive to San Diego International on Tuesday, and will be leaving next Tuesday from San Francisco International Airport.
So far we want to dedicate one day to Legoland, at least one day to San Diego's nearby beaches (Silver Strand State beach?), La Jolla Cove and tidepools.
One or two days for San Francisco, including Muir Woods, Golden Gate, Chinatown, Lombard St.
Big Sur and Pfeiffer Beach
If possible - Yosemite, Los Angeles/Hollywood
I'm not sure if we'd have to take Hwy 1 all the way from San Diego to San Francisco or not. If we do - we'd probably want to stop somewhere in the middle between those two cities and sleep overnight. Can you recommend a place for us?
Is it doable? Is there anything that we are missing? Would appreciate your advice.
We'd need two rooms for every night, so if you can recommend some affordable hotels in both cities and along the way - I'd appreciate it too.
