I'm new here - had a look but couldn't find anything so sorry if I'm repeat-posting!
I'm going to California in August... definitely spending some time in San Fran but I'm meeting someone there, and they're going out before me, and I was thinking of maybe going to L.A first and then driving up to meet them.
Wondering what is the best route - the coast road looks amazing, is it difficult or ok? Are there good places to stop and stay (if I make this trip last a couple of days)?
I'd also be a solo female driver, I'm quite comfortable with that but you reckon it would be ok?
How long should I be leaving to do the trip well?
And finally, what are the best websites for route planning and car rental and all the rest?
Any help or general tips much appreciated!
