I moved to LA a few months ago, from the UK and my Dad's coming into town to visit. We want to drive up to San Fran, and I heard that Highway 1 is a very scenic route. He is only here for a week and we have a lot of other stuff to do so I was hoping we could make this a two day trip.
Our plan is to leave LA very early one morning, take Highway 1 up to San Fran, taking our time - basically the whole day - making some stops at the best points. Spend the night in San Fran, then the next morning seeing a few sights, then drive back to LA the next afternoon but this time via a quicker route (101?).
So my questions are,
What are the best places to stop on Highway 1? How long would it take us to drive if we made, say 3 1 hour stops?
- I'm very interested in the Redwood National forest?
The best sights to see in San Fran?
The quickest way back to LA?
Hope someone can help me out!
I would like to drive through and stop someone in Big Sur, if anyone has any suggestion where to stop that would be good.
