My family and I (kids ages 12 and 15) will be in San Francisco and we wanted to take a couple of days to visit Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur. The scenery seems amazing and we'd like to experience these things in person. Carmel Village seems really cute and fun as well. I am sort of at a loss for about how much time I should spend visiting these three places and if there are particular days of the week that are best or worst. My first thought was to spend two days/one night possibly leaving San Fran Sunday morning and coming back Monday night. If anyone has any advice or input please let me know what you think. First hand advice beats anything I can read in a travel book. Thanks in advance!!
