On Friday afternoon, we will be leaving SLO around 1PM (after picnic/wine tasting) with a target of 4:30PM to arrive in Marina Del Rey at the Jamaica Bay Inn.
My thinking is to avoid 405 and drive the preferred scenic coastal route via Malibu. Are there any "guaranteed" backups on the Pacific Coast Highway to suggest going 405 instead? Possibly the PCH is the faster route anyway?
We have a 6PM dinner party at the hotel to attend that evening.
