I want to break up the journey from SF to LA travelling down HWY1 in Oct next year.
From the forum posts and FAQs I have almost decided on stopping in Cambria for 2 nights. I was hoping to only do one stop along the way.
From looking at the map it seems that the hardest driving (winding roads along the cliff edge) is north of Cambria. So would it be advisable to stop a bit further north for our 2 nights considering we will be driving on the other side of the road from what we are used to? We will be doing this drive straight after picking up the car in SF as we are not going to have a car while staying in SF.
We are not really interested in seeing Hearst Castle but are really just stopping to break up the trip. I would like to have a look at the Monterey Aquarium and maybe take a look around Carmel as well on the way down the coast.
