We are over from Australia and we are planning a road trip down the Pacific coast HWY from San Francisco to Santa Barbra. We plan to do it slower so we can check some of the cool towns out on the way.
Our plans are below at the moment are:
1st night: Santa Cruz
2nd night: Monterey
3rd night: Big Sur
4th night: Santa Barbara
Would you agree with these places to stop at overnight and if you have any recommendations for foodie places restaurants/institutions to visit on the way?
We are not sure about staying overnight around the big sur area as we visited the Ave of the Giants on another road trip and would prefer more lively towns with plenty of restaurants and places to visit so we may drive straight through and have two nights in Santa Barbara or stop in San Luis Obispo?
