I am travelling with my girlfriend, we are two students 23 and 21 years old from the UK and after researching around we want to spend about 3 weeks travelling around the California.
Or plan at the moment is a follows (all dates in August)...
- 1st to 4th in Sacramento (3 nights)
- 4th to 9th in San Francisco (5 nights)
- 9th to 10th in Santa Maria (1 night)
- 10th to 13th surfing (location and dates can change) (3 nights)
- 13th to 16th in LA (3 nights)
- 16th to 19th in San Diego (3 nights)
We have 1 day spare in the plan as we want to fly to Honolulu on the 20th once we check our times for this leg of the trip.
Stopping at Santa Maria was because it looks halfway down the coast, there could be somewhere better?
Surfing is unknown with location and dates yet because we don't know which beach or area along to coast to do it on (between SF and San Diego).
Only booked activity is the color run in Sacramento on 3rd August and we know we want to go to Disneyland in LA too.
Do these timings seem too much or too little? We are not massive on sightseeing or outdoor activities but would like to do as much as we can to see and experience the area and enjoy California as it's looking like our favourite bit of the trip.
Any help would be awesome thanks.
If anyone has any idea what type of daily budget we should thinking of with cheap accommodation such as hostels and any good websites / places to book car hire for young people between SF and San Diego that'd be amazing.
Thank you a lot for any help!
