Hello! Longtime reader, first time poster.
My husband and I are flying from Kansas City to Monterey, CA., to pick up a car to drive back to KC in a couple of weeks.
We'll be in Monterey for a few days, then we're taking the 1 to Santa Barbara, staying a night there, then cutting across, north of LA to the 15 on our way to a night in Las Vegas and stops beyond. We are anticipating long, lazy drives with frequent side trips.
We're adventurous eaters, and I have already culled from this long lists of potential restaurants to try in the cities we're staying in overnight. I'm looking for "must stops" along the way, be they bakeries, farms, restaurants, etc.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations!
