Gems for a California roadtrip?? Any Advice?

tw1178 | Apr 14, 2008 02:02 PM

So, a friend and I are both graduating in May, and for a little break from real life, we've decided to take about a week and drive the California coast...America's greatest road trip, right?

Anyway, neither of us are from Cali, but we are flying into LAX, renting a car, and heading North towards SF. We have no particular destination, and we are going to be camping most of the way, while looking for fun hiking, biking, or other outdoor adventures.

Along the way, I am desperate to find some of California's greatest food and wine surprises, and I'd love to hear any and all advice ranging from farmers markets, to seafood, to taco stands, to BBQ places, to vineyards. to whatever. Really, we're just hoping to have a great, relaxing trip free of chain restaurants!

The only thing on our schedule so far: spicy tuna rolls at Hama Sushi in Little Tokyo, the best sushi I've ever had.

Any advice?
