My husband, dog and I enjoy a 3 week road trip every October, driving from Denver. Our 21 days on the road this year included Sonoma, Mendocino, Carmel and Montecito. Next October, we want to return to Carmel and Montecito (a one week house rental) but would like to add some new destinations. Maybe Cambria (1 nights) and perhaps Laguna Beach (2 nights?) Already seen the Hearst Castle and Solvang.
We are not beach people or serious hikers. My husband LOVES golf (but I need something to do while he is golfing all day, such as a cute town to explore).
Can you think of any other places I should research?
