Phx to Big Sur Road trip also Aquarium ?

With 2 small children (age 5 and 7) in a truck camper. Anyone know of a good place to stop overnight that would break this drive up? Maybe somewhere along the coast thats not to far out of the way?

Also we have done Seaworld this year already is the Monterey Aquarium similiar or better?

Is that Phoenix to Big Sur? That's almost 700 miles of driving! I guess Ventura would be about the midway point.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is not like Sea World. It's a research facility featuring exhibits of sea life that live along the California coast, along with a few exhibits of animals from around the world. There are several exhibits geared for kids, including a touch tank and some play areas. It's definitely a family friendly venue.
