A Perfect San Francisco to Los Angeles Road Trip Itinerary

California is our home, and we wouldn’t trade it for the world. Except for the sky-high cost of living. We’d like to trade that, please. But there’s a reason it’s expensive to live in California – it’s a pretty amazing place with unbeatable weather. Our recent California road trip reminded us of just how incredible this state is.

We made our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles, spending four weeks meandering through California, exploring our home state in a way that we hadn’t before. California is known worldwide for its beauty. From breathtaking beaches, to rolling hills lined with vineyards and groves of towering redwoods, coastal California has it all.

On a road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles, you’ll encounter all of those things and more. It’s a picturesque, exhilarating drive with jaw-dropping landscapes, world-class wine tasting, and more hikes than you could complete in a lifetime. The drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles along Highway 1 is a road trip that should be on everyone’s bucket list. 

In this guide, we’ll walk you through all of the best stops along the way, and give some of our picks for what to check out, eat, and drink in each spot. 

Note: You can absolutely reverse this itinerary for a Los Angeles to San Francisco road trip. 

Before we get to the best stops on your San Francisco to Los Angeles road trip, a few logistics you’ll need to plan the perfect road trip.

Where to Fly In and Out Of?

If you’re not already near the San Francisco area, you will want to fly into San Francisco International Airport (SFO) or Oakland International Airport (OAK) and rent a car that you can comfortably drive down to Los Angeles. 

Plan on flying out of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is going to be your best bet as far as finding flights for most cities.

There are two smaller airports, Burbank (BUR) and John Wayne (SNA), which will be less of a hassle than super busy (and majorly trafficky) LAX but may not offer as many flight options.

How Many Days to Spend Driving from San Francisco to Los Angeles?

The fastest route driving from San Francisco to Los Angeles is straight down Interstate-5 (I-5), which only takes about six hours but is an incredibly boring drive and you miss out on all the best sights along the California coast.

Definitely don’t do that unless you’re in the mood for barren landscapes, lots of big trucks, and the occasional whiff of cattle ranches. We’ve done it and it’s not fun.

When we did the drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles, we did it in about 10 days, with plenty of stops on the gorgeous California coast along the way. 

Our number one tip is to take it slow.

We recommend spending at least three to five days driving down the coast (sample itineraries below!) so that you can take in all of the beautiful coastal California views.

This route is only about nine hours of drive time, so you’ll be able to make plenty of stops for sightseeing, hikes, and picnics at the beach. 

The Route for Driving from San Francisco to Los Angeles

Basically, you’re going to drive highway 1 from San Francisco to Los Angeles. 

Follow Highway 1 from San Francisco along one of the most scenic coastlines in the world.

When you reach Santa Barbara, you’ll continue onto Highway 101 for a short stretch and then hop back on Highway 1 to drive through glitzy Malibu into Los Angeles.

Wondering exactly how to spend your time on your drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles? Here are some itinerary ideas based on our own personal experience.

Below, in the “best stops” section, we have a bit more detail on each place to help you plan your time. 

Note: We’re not counting the day you fly into San Francisco in the number of days. 

In 3 Days

If you only have three days, here is what we’d recommend. 

Day 1: Leave San Francisco early, head to Monterey and walk around Cannery Row, stop at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve before driving through Big Sur, stop at Pfeiffer Beach and McWay Falls, and don’t miss the elephant seals at San Simeone. Spend the night right on the beach at White Water in Cambria, a sleepy coastal town.

Day 2: Grab coffee in San Luis Obispo (we like Scout Coffee A LOT) before heading out to Morro Bay and Montana de Oro. Hike along the coastal bluffs – this is one of our favorite coastal California hikes. Continue the journey south to Avila Beach (stop at the Avila Barn) and Pismo Beach. Both are worth getting out and walking around to stretch your legs. Drive through the Santa Ynez Valley, the best wine region in Southern California, and taste some wine at either Foxen Vineyard & Winery or Babcock Winery & Vineyards. Head into Santa Barbara for the evening – stay at either the Hotel Indigo or the Wayfarer, two of the best places to stay in Santa Barbara. Head to the Funk Zone for some urban wine tasting for the evening, and enjoy dinner at Loquita, a Spanish restaurant right in the heart of Santa Barbara. 

Day 3: Grab coffee at either Dart Coffee or Dune Coffee Roasters and spend the morning exploring the coast around Santa Barbara. Finish your road trip by heading down the coast to Malibu, getting out at Zuma Beach and Point Dume, before continuing down highway 1 and hitting the western edge of Santa Monica. You’ve arrived in LA!

In 5 Days

If you have a bit more time, you’ll be able to make a few more stops along the way.

Day 1: Spend a full day exploring San Francisco. Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge and hike down to Baker Beach for the best view of the bridge. Check out Lombard Street, the crookedest street in the city, which has amazing views of the Bay. Browse the shops and food stalls at the Ferry Building, a collection of San Francisco’s finest artisans like Blue Bottle Coffee, Heath Ceramics, and Dandelion Chocolate. Do dinner and drinks in the Mission, which is the best neighborhood for foodies in San Francisco. Stay overnight at either Beck’s Motor Lodge or the Kabuki, two of the best places to stay in San Francisco.

Day 2: Head out of the city to the south, stopping in Pacifica and Half Moon Bay, before arriving in Santa Cruz. Walk Westcliff Drive and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and don’t miss coffee at Verve and ice cream at the Penny. Hop back on Highway 1 and head south to Monterey and Carmel, your stop for the evening. Spend the night at Hotel Abrego in Monterey, which is a solid value and will put you in a great position to tackle Big Sur early the next day.

Day 3: Today, head out early with a coffee from Captain + Stoker in Monterey in your hands, and start what we think is the best day on this trip. First, head to Point Lobos State Natural Reserve and hike the short and easy trail along the coastal bluffs. Then continue on to Big Sur. The stops to make here, in order, are Bixby Bridge, Andrew Molera State Park (great place for a hike along the coast!), Pfeiffer Beach, McWay Falls, and Limekiln State Park. This should take you a full day, so spend the night in Cambria at White Water, a lovely boutique hotel that is literally across the street from the beach. 

Day 4: Continue the coastal drive down to Morro Bay, where you should stop to admire Morro Rock (and catch a glimpse of the resident sea otters) from Morro Rock Beach. Then, head to Montana de Oro State Park and hike the Bluffs Trail (there are other options below for a more strenuous hike). Head into San Luis Obispo for lunch at Old SLO BBQ Co and cider at SLO Cider Co before making the journey to Santa Barbara through the Santa Ynez Valley, stopping in Los Olivos for cider at Tin City Cider and wine tasting. Stay overnight in Santa Barbara at Hotel Indigo or the Wayfarer and explore the Funk Zone for the evening. 

Day 5: Grab coffee at either Dart Coffee or Dune Coffee Roasters in Santa Barbara in the morning and spend the first half of the day exploring the coast around Santa Barbara. Finish your road trip by heading down the coast to Malibu, getting out at Zuma Beach and Point Dume, before continuing down highway 1 and hitting the western edge of Santa Monica. You’ve arrived in LA!

If you have a couple of extra days, I would spend them in San Francisco or LA. Two days in each would be perfect, which would make this an 8 day adventure. 

That’s a very, very high level look at what a San Francisco to Los Angeles road trip looks like. Continue reading for a detailed look at the best stops to make on the drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles. 

The Best Stops on a San Francisco to Los Angeles Road Trip

Here are our favorite stops along the Pacific Coast of California that you should make sure to add to your itinerary.

San Francisco

San Francisco is so much more than a starting point for your road trip or a place to pick up your rental car. It’s a vibrant city, full of some of the best food and drinks on the west coast. And hills. Lots of hills. 

We called San Francisco home for almost a decade, and we still love the city even though it has become a bit too expensive for our “jobs” (read: exploring the world untethered). 

If you want to spend a day or two exploring San Francisco, we have some travel guides to help you find the best spots.

We’d recommend picking up your rental car at the END of your time in San Francisco, because parking is a veritable nightmare in the city.

If you do have a car, plan on paying for parking at your hotel, or paying for at least one parking ticket over the course of your San Francisco itinerary. 

If you want to stay overnight in San Francisco, we’d recommend choosing a hotel. Most of the hotels in San Francisco are in Union Square, but it’s really not a great place to stay. We think you should stay at either Beck’s Motor Lodge or the Kabuki.

Here are some San Francisco travel guides to help you plan your time. 

Santa Cruz

Whether you love the beach or you’d rather explore the mountains, you’re in luck. Santa Cruz has both!

Known for its gorgeous beaches, Santa Cruz has small-town, surfer beach vibes even though it’s not that small. 

In the mountains above Santa Cruz, you’ll find some of the tallest Redwood trees in the world. You literally can’t go wrong stopping here, and you might have a hard time leaving!

Take Surfing Lessons

If it’s been your dream to learn how to surf, then Santa Cruz is the place to do it. Surf School Santa Cruz has five-star reviews on Yelp and even has private two-person surfing lessons if you have someone with you who wants to join in on the fun. 

Visit the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

Who doesn’t love a good boardwalk? The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk will not disappoint. It’s like a time warp, taking you back into the 1950’s with a wooden roller coaster, arcade games, and other rides like bumper cars. 

Take a few hours to walk around, grab some food, and maybe even play some games or go on a couple of rides.

There are rides for daredevils and little kids, so it’s enjoyable for the whole family and such a wholesome, nostalgic way to spend the day!

Walk or Bike Westcliff Drive

If you’re up for a little fresh air and exercise with stunning views of the ocean, then head over to Westcliff Drive. 

It’s a scenic three mile biking and walking path along the Pacific Ocean with amazing views of Monterey Bay.

Lighthouse Point has a grassy area to relax and play frisbee looking over Steamer Lane, where you can watch surfers on some of the best waves in the United States.

See the Redwoods at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park

Nature lovers, do not miss this stop. This 40-acre grove of old-growth Redwood trees dates back over 1,500 years, with the tallest tree standing 277 feet tall.

These trees are strikingly massive and totally take your breath away. Pictures just genuinely do not do this state park justice.

If you’re lucky, you’ll also get to see some wildlife, including the famous banana slug, which is the mascot for UC Santa Cruz, the university in town. 

Hike the Old Landing Cove Trail

Hop out of the car, throw on your hiking boots (or just your sneakers will do), and head to the Old Landing Cove Trail.

The trail is a 2.3-mile loop that will lead you to views of cliffs along the Pacific Ocean. We’re pretty sure there may literally be no better place to stop and take an easy hike to stretch your legs on a road trip.


Continuing down the coast, next you’ll hit Monterey. Monterey is home to beautiful, uncrowded beaches, all the seafood you could ever want, and the best places to explore the Pacific Ocean.

Well known for its marine life, including the adorable sea otter, it’s also home to the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium. 

The Monterey Bay Aquarium

The aquatic life of the Monterey Bay can be seen up close at the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium.

With over 20,000 marine animals from sharks to jellyfish to otters, this aquarium is one of the best in the world and a must see if you’re interested in marine life.

Whale Watching

Have you ever been whale watching? It’s truly a unique experience! The best time to go whale watching depends on what you want to see.

Orcas and gray whales? December through May. If you’re more interested in seeing Humpbacks, you’ll have a better chance May to November.

Want to see the Blue Whale (the largest animal on earth)? Your best bet is July through October.

Luckily this means that no matter when you visit you can hop on a whale watching tour and have a good chance at seeing some of these giant, majestic creatures.

Get Out On the Water

A popular activity for those who are a little more adventurous and want to get out there is to rent a kayak or a paddleboard. Rent one from Monterey Bay Kayaks. Take a few hours to explore this beautiful stretch of coast from a new perspective.

Head to Point Lobos State Natural Reserve

Point Lobos State Natural Reserve is a protected coastal area where you can hike and explore the wildlife of Monterey.

View the bluffs and cliffs unique to the California coast and hike the trails to check things out on foot. If you’re lucky you’ll spot some sea lions playing in the ocean below.

It’s a unique spot to see all sorts of wildlife – last time we were there we saw hundreds of giant white pelicans perched all over the trees and cliffs.

Big Sur

Big Sur is known for its rugged coastal cliffs and awe-inspiring views. It’s a popular spot to camp and even to just drive through because you can see so much of it from the car.

Stop for the Amazing Sights (North to South)

Bixby Bridge: While you may not know it’s name, it’s likely that you’ve seen this iconic bridge as it’s one of the most photographed bridges in California.

Andrew Molera State Park: With its undeveloped, raw beauty, this state park has trails along the coastline and a beach where you can stop to rest and enjoy the scenery.

Pfeiffer Beach: The striking rock formations here are perfect for exploring and stopping for a quick photo opportunity.

Mcway Falls: Have you ever seen a waterfall right on the beach? Featuring a 80 foot tall, year round waterfall, that switches from emptying on the beach to directly into the ocean depending on the tide.

Ragged Point: The perfect pit stop! A nature trail leads down to the Pacific Ocean and you can often see elephant seals along the beaches.

Take a Hike

  • Andrew Molera State Park loop: Just off Highway 1, this trail is an 8 mile long loop featuring scenic ocean bluffs and a river crossing.

  • Buzzards Roost: For a shorter hike, Buzzards Roost comes in at just 2.6 miles and features the beautiful wildflowers of California. Best to hike March to October.

Treat Yourself

If you want to take a self care day and splurge, then a spa day at Ventana Big Sur offers luxury spa services.

If you want to make this one of your stops for the night, they even have options for glamping in their 20-acre redwood canyon campground.

For a bit more of a rustic, budget friendly self care day check out Esalen Hot Springs to soak in the relaxing, healing waters. 

Morro Bay and Cayucos

This is the peak of the Central Coast of California. These small beach towns are pretty sleepy, but filled with cute local shops and nature trails. We spent a full four days in the area, and loved every second of it.

Stop in San Simeone to See the Elephant Seals

This is a quick stop that does not disappoint! Located 7 miles north of San Simeon, you’ll know you’re in the right place when you open your car door and instantly hear their calls.

It’s a popular spot to observe elephant seals as they hang out here year round. However, the best time of the year to see them is October through May.

Eat Beachside at Hidden Kitchen in Cayucos

We are obsessed with the 100% gluten-free blue corn waffles at Hidden Kitchen! Whether you enjoy savory or sweet, there are options for all taste buds and they’re all gluten free.

Not feeling waffles? They’ve got great tacos too. Get the weirdo, a combination of peanut butter, maple syrup, banana, and BACON.

Hike Around the Base of Morro Rock

Morro Rock stands 576 feet tall above the surrounding ocean, but that’s not even the most impressive thing about it. Morro Rock is actually a volcanic plug that was estimated to have formed about around 23 million years ago.

While you can no longer climb it, you can hike around the base and if you can stick around for sunset you’ll be handsomely rewarded with a breathtaking view.

Make sure to look for sea otters in the calm water flowing from Morro Bay into the open ocean – it’s a favorite hangout for the furry little creatures! They’re Alysha’s favorite.

Explore Montana de Oro State Park

It’s best to enjoy this beautiful state park by hiking one of the many great trails.

  • Bluffs Trail is a 4.1 loop trail that is rated easy and located near Los Osos. It features wildflowers and if you’re looking for a place to get in your morning run before hitting the road it’s good for a quick trail run too.

  • Valencia Peak is 4.2 miles long and rated moderate. It allows you to gain elevation to look at the scenic central California coast from above. 

  • Hazard Peak is a harder trail, but completely worth the climb! At 11.2 miles it’s a bit longer for those who are looking for a more rigorous hike that has an 1,800 foot elevation gain.

San Luis Obispo

Welcome to central California! Once you hit San Luis Obispo, you’re about half way through your San Francisco to Los Angeles drive. 

Drink Cider at SLO Cider Co

If you’re stopping in SLO (San Luis Obispo), you have to enjoy some cider! SLO Cider Co has dry hard cider that is made in California and is gluten free.

Another great option to try some cider is Cider Bar, San Luis Obispo’s first cider bar.

If you’d rather avoid the hard stuff (because you’re driving), head to Whalebird Kombucha for a refreshingly bubbly probiotic pick me up. 

Stop by The Creamery Marketplace

Want to stop and take a walk around to maybe grab a bite to eat or hit a bar?

Make sure you check out The Creamery Marketplace, a collection of bars, restaurants, and shops in Downtown SLO. This open-air public market features a close community of local businesses to support.

Grab Lunch at Old SLO BBQ Co (Gluten Free Options!)

With a walk up window and craft beers on tap, make sure you stop by Old SLO BBQ Co for authentic barbecue.

Many of their recipes date back nearly a century and though it’s not noted on the menu, most of their dishes are gluten free and they have gluten free prep procedures if you let them know your needs.

Make a Stop, or Three, For Coffee

  • Field Day Coffee has that friendly outdoor, plant filled coffee shop vibe with amazing coffee – and they make their own almond milk.
  • Scout Coffee Co has two locations in SLO where they feature pastries from their in house bakery and craft roast coffee.
  • Kreuzberg California is a low key, art-adorned coffee house with good food and space to hang out and enjoy yourself. 

Head to Nearby Avila Beach

A short drive from San Luis Obsipo is Avila Beach, a smaller beach town with a few fun sights to check out.

The quick hike down to Pirate’s Cove is one of our favorite stops on this stretch of coast – just note that it is a clothing optional beach, so it’s up to you if you want to avert your eyes or join in.

Another fun stop is the Avila Barn which has the exact farm vibe you’d expect it to!

With tons of produce and baked goods you can pick up a few snacks for the road after feeding some goats and visiting with all the other farm animals.

The Santa Ynez Valley: Solvang and Los Olivos

Wine Tasting

Are you a fan of wine tasting? This is your chance and here are our top choices in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Babcock Vineyards is located in Lompoc with beautiful views and lots of recommendations from locals in the area. Rancho Sisquoc Winery is part of a 37,000 acre cattle ranch and has been crafting small quantities of quality wines for over 40 years.

Priding themselves on minimalist winemaking and sustainable wine-growing, Foxen Vineyard is a solar-powered winery located in nearby Santa Maria.

Los Olivos

A town full of tasting rooms! Wine tasting is basically all there is to do here and we’re not complaining.

You can take your pick from the dozens of tasting rooms, but make sure you make a stop in Tin City Cider for a taste of their amazing dry cider.


Well known for its Danish style architecture, Solvang is a bit touristy, but still a fun stop on your way down the coast.

We recommend checking out The Book Loft, Solvang Spice Merchant, and stopping by to check out the Solvang windmill.

Santa Barbara

One of our favorites! There’s a reason many celebrities have homes away from the congestion of Los Angeles in Santa Barbara. It has been coined “The American Riviera” with its dramatic backdrop of mountains and expansive ocean views.

Explore the Funk Zone

Spanning the area between the ocean and Highway 101, the Funk Zone is a district of Downtown Santa Barbara that has become more popular in recent years as tasting rooms, shops, galleries, and cafes have started to pop up.

We love the Valley Project, which focuses on unique wines from the nearby wine regions and has a gorgeous map of the area behind the bar. 

Tackle the Urban Wine Trail

Within the Funk Zone is the Urban Wine Trail, which is a self-guided route of over 20 tasting rooms representing Santa Barbara County wines. 

Hike to Inspiration Point

A 3.5 mile trail that gives you a chance to experience the beauty of the mountains of Santa Barbara with amazing views of the ocean.

It’s open year round and has a decent amount of shade if you’re there during the summer and are looking for a trail with some relief from the California sun.

Hit the Beach

  • Leadbetter Beach does get a bit busy in the summer, but if you’re there during the week or off season it’s not too bad. You can grab a blanket, have a picnic and watch the sailboats from the nearby Santa Barbara Harbor.

  • Butterfly Beach, located in ritzy Montecito just south of Santa Barbara, is a long narrow stretch of beach that’s perfect for walking or relaxing.

  • Arroyo Burro Beach is a dog friendly beach considered a hidden gem by the locals and has a few restaurants to stop in to eat at if you get hungry. 

Where to Eat & Drink in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is full of great food and drinks, including a bunch of gluten free restaurants. Here are our favorites.

  • For coffee, go to Dune Coffee Roasters, the best coffee in Santa Barbara, or Dart Coffee, whose outdoor patio (“coffee garden”) is a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee on one of the seemingly unlimited gorgeous days in Santa Barbara.

  • For incredible Spanish food, head to Loquita and order the paella.

  • For 100% gluten free brunch, featuring amazing french toast and about as many baked goods as you can possible imagine, Lilac Patisserie is your spot.

  • Lily’s Tacos are some of the most authentic tacos I’ve had in the US, and it’s all gluten free. And super affordable – you can easily feed a couple for $15.


If boho-chic were a town it would be Ojai. If that’s your vibe, then you’ll definitely want to pass through on your San Francisco to Los Angeles drive.

Lunch at Food Harmonics

Health foodies, there are a lot of great restaurants in Ojai, but this is one you need to check out.

They focus on delicious healing, balancing food and their menu is 100% organic, gluten, sugar, soy, and GMO free.

Browse New and Used Books at Barts Books

Have you ever visited an outdoor bookstore? Barts Books is a quirky bookstore in the middle of a pretty quirky town. If you love being surrounded by books, then you definitely need to stop in because it’s a book lovers paradise.

Grab a Treat at Revel Kombucha Bar

Known for its fresh kombucha on tap, you can also get decadent acai bowls as well as probiotic matcha and coffee.

Fuel Up at Beacon Coffee

Looking for the best coffee in town? Beacon Coffee is the place to stop in if you need a quick caffeine fix and want to support a local business that works with family owned farms around the world.

As a bonus they have several gluten free pastries available for you to snack on – but be sure to come early for these treats, they sell out fast!

Ventura and the Channel Islands

Heading down the coast a bit, you’ll hit Ventura and off the coast in the Pacific Ocean nearby are the Channel Islands.

If you want to take a full day excursion to check out the Channel Islands National Park, book a cruise with Island Packers which offers rides to Santa Cruz (most popular to visit) and Anacapa islands.


The last stop of your road trip has got to be Malibu. To get there, hop back on Highway 1 (locals call this section the Pacific Coast Highway, or PCH for short) and drive the coastal route past Malibu into Santa Monica, the western edge of Los Angeles.

Soak in the Sun at Zuma Beach

Zuma is one of the biggest and most popular beaches in Los Angeles county. Plus, it’s a great place to surf if that’s your thing.

Even though there are tons of spaces, parking can get tough in the summer months so make sure you bring some shoes for walking to the beach just in case you have to park farther away.

Watch Surfers at Malibu Lagoon

Where Malibu Creek meets the Pacific Ocean, you’ll find Malibu lagoon. On the east side, you can visit Malibu pier and right next door you’ll find Surfrider Beach, one of the best places in California to hang out and watch the surfers.

Hike Los Liones Trail

Because of the location of this hike, it can get a little crowded on weekends, but it’s totally worth checking out!

Make sure you make it all the way to the top for the gorgeous views of the ocean and nearby Pacific Palisades.

It’s a 4.5 mile hike with 1,200 feet of elevation gain, which means it’s in the moderate category as far as difficulty goes. 

Los Angeles

Congratulations! You made it! 

Los Angeles is a pretty incredible city, and neither of us had spent much time there until we recently spent over a week exploring the city. 

Whether you want to eat and drink, relax on the beach, or hit the theme parks, there’s something for everyone in Los Angeles. 

Here are some of our Los Angeles travel guides to help you plan your time if you have a couple of extra days at the end of your road trip. 

California has so many diverse landscapes, all beautiful in their own right. But if we were to recommend a road trip, San Francisco to Los Angeles would definitely be at the top of our list.

It’s one of the most beautiful drives in the world… if you take the coastal route instead of the inland route, that is.

We hope you enjoy your San Francisco to Los Angeles road trip! Did you discover a new spot that we didn’t cover? Let us know so we can add it to our list of places to explore in California!


    1. December would be a great time to do this. You might get a little bit of rain, and it’s not going to be hot, but December generally has decent weather and it’ll be far less crowded than other times of year. Plus, sunrises/sunsets in December in California are amazing!

    1. Hey Tracy! Both are going to be roughly the same in terms of weather. I’d go with March, but there’s not a huge difference between those two months. Enjoy!

  1. I have just booked flights to San Fran for next April, with my hubbie and 2 kids 13 & 11 we plan to take 8 days to drive San Fran to LA then 2 days to vegas, then fly to New York.
    Your blog giving me great ideas for planning our Road trip, I know we are trying to fit in alot but coming from Ireland this will be a huge adventure for adults and kids. ( I love hiking, hopefully by then I will have converted my family also)

    1. Fun fun! That is a lot to see over a couple of weeks, but eight days between San Francisco and LA is a decent amount of time to see the highlights. Let us know if you have any specific questions as you’re planning – happy to help!
