I am looking at a road trip in Late October or early November. I have lots of Alaska Airlines Mastercard points and plan to use a combination of points and cash to book return flights. Alaska Airlines flies to many locations in California (fly out of Seattle). I would rent a car and do a loop. Pick up and return at the same location (cheapest). Hope to do a 8 or 9 night trip and stay at hotels or bed and breakfeasts. We are fair weather travellers, enjoy seeing different sites (we are from British Columbia), like beaches and the ocean but are not overly interested in large congested centers or nightlife. Anyone have any ideas out there?
