We are arriving June 26th from New York. We are planning an overnight in Cambria on our way up the coast. We would like to see Hearst Castle on the 26th.

Between the waiting time and fly time, we thought we would be better off driving - but which airport makes the most sense? What about traffic conditions on a Thursday morning?
Also is it possible to drive to Big Sur after our tour and spend the night at Ventana:
