  1. Default Vancouver BC to Santa Barbara early January

    We have four days to make this journey. Given the possibly bad weather, can anyone suggest (a) the safest route (b) some interesting places to stay on this route. Thanks.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    With 4 days, I'd probably take I-5 down into Oregon, then cut over to the Coast, and Follow US-101 down to San Francisco.

    That's a trip that would take up a good chunk of your 4 days - considering how much slower US-101 is - and you probably wouldn't have time to add in CA-1 for the sections like big sur where that is the coast highway. However, this would allow you to bypass some of the major mountain passes, while enjoying a very scenic drive with lots of attractions.
