California Virgin - Advice please

Hey everyone. So the Mrs and I are planning to come to Cali for 10-14 days in July. Looks like we will be landing in LA. Will likely stay there for 2 nights.

From there we want to drive up towards Napa Valley. First stop likely Santa Barbara to visit some wineries.

Along the way we would be interested in wineries, any great beaches, casinos.

Any suggestions in terms of route would be amazing. And is 10-14 days enough time to make our way that far?

Hi,

Are you flying home from San Francisco or do you need to get back to LA for your return flight??: That will make a big difference in how far north you can easily drive.

The only large casino near the coast is the Chumash Casino near Santa Barbara.

If you head east of Los Angeles, you could check out the Temecula Wine County.

There are many large casinos in the area, Pechanga is the closest, but then just south in Northern San Diego County, you have Pala, Casino Pauma, Harrah's Rincon and Valley View.

Maybe spend a night at Pechanga to tour the Wineries during the day, and then a couple of casinos in the evening.
