California Honeymoon San Diego, LA, SF with PCH Road Trip?

Hi all,

I am planning a honeymoon in August to California and thought up some ideas that I would like your thoughts on:

1) Arrive in San Diego, stay 3 days

2) Fly to SF

3) Spend 2 - 3 days in SF / Tahoe

4) Rent a car in SF and drive south on PCH to LA (2 - 3 days)

5) Spend 2 days in LA

6) Return home

Questions:

1) Does this itinerary sound good?

2) Do you have any suggestions and or changes you would make?

3) Where do we stop on the PCH trip down south?

4)What will the weather be in August on the trip?

Thanks so much for your help on this, I appreciate it!

Sure. You have 3 large cities to see but I don't get the 2-3 days in SF and Tahoe part. It is about 8 hours to Tahoe and back so you will spend a whole day out of 3 just driving plus about half a day getting from SD to SF (airport, flight, bags, transfer) takes about 3-4 hours)

Here is a primer on the SF to LA road trip with links to help you based on the collective wisdom of the fab TA folks

Personally it takes 3 full days to scratch the surface in SD, LA and SF. But it is your honeymoon and so you can decide based on your likes and dislikes and how much you want to relax vs drive

Thanks for the reply, this is the kind of stuff I love about TA.

I didn't realize that Tahoe was so far, I will probably drop it.

On the three days in each place, I def hear you and your thoughts. Thanks.
