My boyfriend and I are driving down from BC starting on July 3rd, and we will be going right along the coast. As we are both young and don't have a whole lot of money, we need to find some decent places to stay, either camping or motel/hotel, for not too expensive. I realize that it will be difficult considering we are beginning our trip on the Independence Day weekend, but if anyone knows of any places that we might be able to stay (at least in between San Francisco and Los Angeles; we have been looking at Pismo Beach), please let me know. I have never been down into California so I need all the help I can get. Thanks!
