We (a family of 3, including an infant) are thinking of driving from LA to SFO in mid September.
As we arrive in LA from London mid noon, I thought it would be good just to drive a couple of hours so that we would not be so tired. As such, I have planned the following route:
Day 1 - Arrive LAX. Collect car and drive to Santa Barbara. Spend night in Santa Barbara.
Day 2 - Leave Santa Barbara around noon. Head towards Monterey Bay along the coast. Any suggestions on where we can put up for the night here?
Day 3 - Leave late morning and arrive in Monterey around noon. Spend the night in Monterey.
DAy 4 - Leave Monterey noon and take a slow drive to SFO
Do you think the trip would be too strenuous for an infant? Also, can anyone suggest where/which town we could put up in on day 2? Also, any hotel suggestions for these places?...my budget is around $100/night
Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
