Me and mygirlfriend are travelling to CA on October 8th this year(6 weeks to go WOO HOO!!) I just need a little advice as to what to do on the first part of our trip.
We land in LA early evening on 8th Oct. We have a hotel arranged near to LAX for convenience (I'll need a sleep!!!) We plan to drive up the coastal road to San Francisco the next morning. My quandry is, I have tickets to see the 49ers play at Candlestick park in San Francisco on Sun 11th October at 1pm.
I want to see as much of the coastline as possible, staying over somewhere on the Friday 9th October (Maybe Santa Maria/Santa Barbara) and then move on to somewhare like Santa Cruz/Carmel and stay over Sat 10th. I am just a little worried about getting to Candlestick park for 1pm the following day. (I would hate to miss the game!!!!!)
Any ideas of somewhere nice to stay nearer to San Fran on the 10th would be good, or is Carmel close enough for me to drive to Candlestick the morning of the 11th?
I'm staying in San Fran 11th, 12th and 13th too so would prefer to stay somewhere else on the 10th. After that i'm moving on to Yosemite and then to Vegas and back to LA
Any help would be Brilliant. I have no accommodation booked inbetween the LA hotel on the 8th and San Francisco on the 11th. I'm not looking to spend $$$$ on hotels but i'd like to stay in a few nice places, kinda $200 a night maybe.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
