  1. Default Road Trip along the US pacific coast


    it is my first time planing the road trip and I badly want to drive from LA to San Francisco. So could you please help to recommend which places to stay and to eat along this coastline trip. Also, I wonder how dangerous to drive along the highway 1? I just started to drive only a few month ago. So, I wonder if it will be too dangerous for me to drive along this coast? Thank you so much for your help :-)

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    The coast road is a slow, winding road with many twists and turns but I would not describe it as "dangerous". Many millions of people have driven it safely, so there is no reason why you shouldn't, as long as you feel confident and competent to do so. Drive at a pace that you are comfortable and relaxed with, but if you find a queue of traffic behind, or a couple of cars that have been behind for a while, just use a pull out when safe to do so and let them by.

    You don't say how long you have to drive along the coast, but you will find lot's of info by searching the RTA site to see what interests you. The Morro bay area, Cayucos, Cambria and San Simeon for Hearst castle tours are all popular, and further North around Big Sur is Monterey and Carmel.
