We are a family of four (kids age 18 and 16) from Israel, going on a trip in the US in April, and we plan two days on Route no. 1.
Day 1 - From LA to San Luis Obispo (Thu, 4/10)
Day 2 - From San Luis Obispo to Monterey (Fri, 4/11)
Plan includes Hearst Castle, Big Sur, 17-mile drive, the aquarium in monterey.
Although I travelled in the US in the past, I've never been to this area before so I don't realy know what's interesting and what to add or to skip, nice spots for vista, short hikes etc.
Any advise will be welcomed.
Also would love some advice on nice motels (budget 100-150$ per night) in or near SLO, as well as recommended places to eat along the way.
How much time should we reserve for the way from SLO to Hearst Castle (so I can reserve a tour)? I believe it takes around 1 hour driving straight, but don't know if there are intersting spots on the way.
Thanks for your assistance
