Hi, I'm planning to drive down highway 1 from SF to SD in late April '14 before flying out to Maui for a beach week.
I've got 3 nights booked in SF then have 5 full days before flying to Hawaii. I'd like some advice on how to split these 5 days between the drive and a stay in SD please. My initial thoughts are to spend 3 days/2 nights on the drive and the rest of the time in SD. Is this a good way to split the time or would it be better to have a day less on the road and an extra day in SD?
Thoughts on where to stop over in both scenarios would be most welcome.
Also, on car hire, convertible or RV? I drive a convertible at home and love it but is it better to be higher up to take in the view?
Looking forward to your thoughts.
