We will be arriving into SFO on a Friday at 5:45pm, it should be 6:30ish after getting bags and car then heading down to Santa Cruz for a couple of days of our trip. We plan on taking 17 down for expediency and then take 1 up the coast to our next stop in Mill Valley. What will traffic be like? Should we eat near the airport, along the way, or in Santa Cruz? We like all sorts of food, especially things we cant get in DC. All suggestions welcome!! Will cross post on California board.
P.S.I love artichokes, any recs
