Central Coast California road trip L.A-Salinas

ixchel79eh | Mar 20, 201901:35 PM     10

Hi all, in mid-April my family and I are traveling from Los Angeles to Salinas. Our plan is to take PCH and stay at Morro Bay the first night. That first day we will go to Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach and Lompoc. (Maybe do lunch in Santa Barbara?) The second day we will go to Cambria, San Simeon, and Ragged Poing. We will be staying in Salinas but we will spend a day in Monterey (the aquarium) and Carmel before going back to L.A taking the freeway. (Any recommendations for Monterey/Carmel?) On our way back we were thinking on stopping at Paso Robles and Los Alamos. We like restaurants that use fresh local ingredients. The quality of the ingredients is key for us. Rather than over the top preparation, we prefer simple but full of flavor. We are open to any kind of food and would love to taste some great seafood during the trip. We don’t mind driving for food to special places. What about bakeries and bread? Since we are traveling with a 5 and 7 year old very fancy places won’t work for us. Thanks!
