After a week in Yosemite, we'll be in Monterey for one night before heading up to the airport in San Francisco the next day. We'd like a scenic drive to see some of the coast and are considering route 1. Is the stretch from Monterey to San Francisco worth the added time investment? We're also hoping to squeeze in an early quick lunch at the pier on Fisherman's wharf before our 3:30p flight. Perhaps we are overambitious?
