San Jose to Solvang

We plan to visit Solvang in Sept. We are driving from SJ to Solvang. This is our first trip on this route? Would someone please suggest points of interest, places to stay and eat along the way? I read some info. from the forum, but none specific for SJ to Solvang. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

You should look at the Calfornia forum and read the top questions there and itineraries. What route are you taking? It all depends on that. 101 goes to Solvang and is the fastest route and one could stop in Paslo Robles and SLO

If you go hwy 1 then you drive along the Big Sur and check out the Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur forum for info. Perhaps you have already done that area since you live in SJ

You could also go to Hearst Castle, Cambria, Pismo Beach, Morro Bay. You don't say what you like to do (wine tasting, sight seeing )nor do you say how many days you are taking to drive down. The more info you provide by reposting this in the CA forum after doing some more reading, the better folks can help you. Perhaps no one has posted SJ to Solvang info but many do the coastal drive from SF to SB and beyond and Solvang is one spot enroute
