A few years ago my wife and I went to California and stayed in Monteray. We loved it. It was our first time there and we just couldnt get enough of the area.
This year we are planning on going back, but we are thinking about heading North of San Fransico.
The plan is to fly into SF and drive an hour or so to our first destination (Hoping you might help me figure our that destination). Spend a couple of days there, and then drive a few more hours up the cost. Spend a few days there, and then head back to SF, and spend a day or two there before flying back.
What we are looking for are beach towns. My wife loves to wake up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee and walk the beach. She also loves to shop in little ma, and pop stores.
Im looking forward to driving down more of HWY 1 and just stopping whenever we feel like it. If I can find a kayak rental some where along the way Ill be more than happy (was introduced to kayaking in Monteray and try to find a place to kayak every vacation we go on now).
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
