My spouse and I are visiting California and will be driving from San Jose to Cambria. We're staying 2 nights in Cambria and then we'll drive back to San Jose. We are planning on leaving early morning, taking the highway (to avoid traffic) to Cambria and heading to the Hearst Castle (late afternoon). I'm looking for recommendations of must see areas/itinerary suggestions for the Cambria, San Luis Obispo, and Paso Robles areas (and any other places in this vicinity). The San Luis Obispo Walking Food Tour is one recommendation that I received. I'm also interested in restaurant recommendations. We will have 2 days to explore.
We're planning on driving the coast back to San Jose and stopping to see sights along the way and are looking for recommendations of places to stop along the way(Big Sur, Pebble beach, etc) We've been to Carmel and Monterey on a different visit. We'll have one full day (morning until evening) to explore on the drive back.
Thank you in advance for the help.
