I'm doing a road trip up up north from SoCal in late October as a surprise for my girlfriend's Birthday.
I plan on leaving the LA Area, having breakfast in Solvang, driving to Hearst Castle and then doing a one hour tour there.
From there we'll drive to Big Sur. We'll have a few hours in Big Sur before checking into our hotel in Monterey.
I've never been to Big Sur and she hasn't either. If the pictures are anything like I see on the 'Net, then I have to see it.
How can I maximize my time in Big Sur for the few hours we're there? i hear there's a half mile hike that ends at the ocean that is to die for.
I imagine we'll be there around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Please let me know.
