We're leaving from Moss Landing 17 miles north of Monterey about 1 p.m. on a Thursday and would like your suggestions for the easiest route to SanFrancisco. Our hotel is on Lombard Street. We are from a tiny town in MN and are a bit stressed thinking about California driving. Time is not an issue, but multiple lanes with tailgating drivers going very fast is. We don't mean to sound sissy, but we don't want to be in an accident or be the cause of one either. Thanks for any sound advice.
