Coming only for 5 nights, 4 full days ( Coming late night 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, flying out 5)
Here is the itinerary that I am hesitant about:
1 day - Monterey, Big Sure, 17 Mile drive, Pismo beach, Santa Barbara - destination: LA ( late night)
2 day - LA, driving late night to San Diego, overnight San Diego
3 day - San Diego
4 day - San Diego
5 day - fly out
Having very busy schedules at work, I am not sure if such a heavy itinerary is doable, and most importantly - enjoyable...Could you please suggest if it is well worth it to do the following:
1) Is it worth it to start only half way: from Monterey, not SF? Should we postpoe the drive and do it another time from SF to SD?
2) what are the best stops to make on the PCH if you have only 1 full day ( we love hiking and nature, cute towns, architecture. Shopping malls is not in our list). Would you recommend a cute romantic hotel/B7B,inn in Monterey/Carmel/Pacific Grove?
3)Our plan was to stop in Monterey, Big Sur, 17 mile drive, Pismo Beach, Santa Barbara. is it doable to do it all in 1 day, enjoying - or is it too much?
4) if doing all in 1 day as showed in #3 is too much, would you suggest to sleep in Santa Barbara before getting to LA?
5) Is it enough 0.5 day in LA?
6) 2 days in San Diego?
Thank you in advance!
