2 girlfriends since high school, friends for over 30 yrs, 1 lives in Cali and the other in Texas. She arrives 6/2 at LAX at 10 am. Was planning on driving up to Northern Calif right from airport and trying to see some Sequoias, stay the night in No Calif, and begin our day with Redwoods then take 6 days to take the coastal route back to LA with stops for wine tasting, San Fran, Big Sur, Santa Cruz,Carmel, Monterey, Hearst Castle, San Luis Obispo, Solvang, but not sure of what order yet or where to stay.

Great road trip up the coast from Santa Cruz to Half Moon Bay. Stop in Davenport during Open Studios Tour. Exciting abstract expressionist paintings, gorgeous photographs, raw line drawings, Homemade surf boards. Great eats: "Whale City Bakery/Cafe" and the "Roadhouse". Raw outrageously gorgeous coastal bluffs and beaches for hours of exploration.

I have always wanted to visit San Francisco and drive down the Californian coast road. We were also interested in visiting the Pebble beach concourse and Laguna Seca Historic car races. It was a great trip and interesting noting the cultural differences especially with food.
