I thought I had hammered out my plans but then I saw Big Sur and am thinking I need to add this into our road trip plans.
I have planned the following road trip; starting in Las Vegas(2 nights), then to yosemite (3 nights) which I then planned on going to Santa Cruz for 2 nights then finishing in San Francisco for 3 nights.
Well... I am now thinking instead of going from yosemite to santa cruz, I should go from yosemite to cambria and start to drive up the coast from there, however how many nights and where should I stay?... should I shorten the san fran stay to 2 nights to spend more time along the coast?
I will be traveling with my 13 year old daughter, I love nature and she loves shopping, not at outlets but little unique shops that she may find something interesting in. We both like to eat so good food is always a good thing. I was thinking of adding Hearst Castle but still not sure about it. Capitola seemed like it may be something we like, is there anything similiar near Cambria or is Cambria a good place to spend the night?
I was also looking at Deetjens Bir Sur inn for one night stay as well. Do you think staying in Big Sur for a night would be good?
Thank you for any advice in advance.
