Road Trip through California

KLD1967 | Feb 25, 2009 06:06 PM

We're flying into San Francisco on March 6th and then immediately driving out headed to Yosemite for a few days, down to Sequoia and King's County and then over to the coast around Santa Barbara and then heading up the coast and ending the trip back in San Francisco. We'll be travelling for 15 days.

We're from Canada and haven't been to California before. The goal of the trip is to just drive and end up where we end up so we're not making any reservations. However, I am doing research to make sure we don't miss anything we want to see.

Regarding restaurants, I need some ideas. We love food. We love all types of restaurants from greasy, amazing hole-in-the-walls to a good steakhouse, to ethnic food, to you name it, if it's we good, we'll like it. We like to find unique, local finds as well. We can't break the bank but it doesn't all have to be cheap.

I know this is a really broad request but would really love a list of favourites that are just too good to miss. Thanks for your help!

Okay, I'm going to admit that I can't wait to get to Pinkberry (discovered it in NYC) and really want to try In 'N Out Burger. On the opposite side, I'd love to go to Chez Panisse but not sure if DH could handle it (nor our wallet!).
