We are planning our honeymoon in December 2012 and we wish to take a road trip on Route 1. However we wish to end up in San Francisco, so we are looking at starting in San Diego and traveling up North, making our final stop in San Francisco. Neither of us have been to the US before, and we have many questions about how to plan this trip, what are the best places to visit / see on this route.
Also how many days should we allow in our itinerary for this route so it is not all driving, we want to appreciate the places we are passing through as well and have a look around them.
We were looking at about 10 days for Route 1??
Then the plan is to spend Christmas in New York, before flying back out of the US home again.
Any help, feedback, assistance would be great to ensure we make the most of this road trip.
