So I'm planning my September 2015 road trip of California and am looking for advice and suggestion regarding my Itinerary. We are looking to spend from 14 - 21 days in total.
Just to to let you know that we are looking a trip with with the best views of the spectacular scenery within this state. Neither my wife or I a into hiking but have no issues with 'a stroll through the countryside!' We would preferably want to drive through the best scenery we can to arrive at even more beautiful destinations. One thing we both want to do though is horse riding (for novices) in the mountains ... it's just one of those romantic dreams we both have!
Neither of us are that interested in LA either ...
Here's my rough itinerary, let me know what you guys think.
Day 1; arrive at San Francisco and spend 3 nights
Yosemite Valley - 3 nights
Sequoia National Park - 1 night
Death Valley National Park - 2 nights
take Pine to Palms Highway to;
Santa Monica - 1 night
Santa Barbara - 1 night
take the coastal road to San Francisco and fly home
As you can see it's very fluid at the moment and we are looking for suggestions at where to stay on our route or even alternative suggestions.
Should this route be taken in reverse maybe?
