The next day I plan to do Hearst Castle and the elephant seals etc.
The next leg is where I need help, I ultimately want to end up in Santa Barbara before hitting LA but am not sure where to stop and how long for.
San Simeon to Santa Barbara seems a long way and SB is of course expensive to stay. Is there anywhere worth stopping on the way - Santa Maria, Solvang for example?
Or should I just push on through to SB and stay there for the night? Is there enough in the SB to warrant a 2 night stay?
Thanks a lot in advance!
