We were planning to stay in Lake Tahoe for a week and fly into Reno. Someone suggested we should start in San Diego and drive highway 1 with a few stops in between and shorten our stay at the Lake to 3-4 days. Any suggestions on where would should stop if we take Highway 1? How long would the drive be and is it worth taking that much time out of Lake Tahoe? We are coming from Cincinnati and only staying a week. Any advice or places of interested to stop or stay are appreciated!
