Pacific Coast Highway Road Trip

I am planing a road trip from San Francisco to LA and then to Vegas in August 2014 from the UK.

We will fly into San Francisco, have a couple of days there before renting a car and setting off.

We have 2 weeks.

What would you all suggest the itinerary to be?

-where shall we stop off?

-how long should we spend at each place?

-what's not to miss?

Welcome to the Forums!

Switch over to the full TA site (non mobile) and have a look at the Top Questions on this forum. There is a ton of info that's been collected on the drive between SF and LA -- it's very popular.

With two weeks, I would suggest at least 3 FULL days (but 4-5 is better) in San Francisco. It's not large geographically but there is a lot to see in 49 square miles.

And do your research fast. August is the busiest month for tourism and some lodging options in some locations are already full.

Read the relevant Top Questions including the CA Itineraries, then set your draft itinerary and share it with us. Knowing more about what is 'worth it' to you will help us to give you valuable suggestions.
