I'm looking for a little help. We're landing at SFO next Saturday morning from an East Coast Flight around 10:30AM.
The plan was to hop in a car and spend a night in Carmel at the Carmel Valley Ranch, enjoy the scenic drives, spend some time around Carmel etc..
We have to have our car back at SFO the next day by 6:30PM so I'm looking for some suggestions.
We would like the most scenic drives but are also conscious of our time.
From what I understand the drive from SFO to Carmel is very nice, scenic, coastal - but Big Sur is even more incredible but is about an hour beyond Carmel? Do I have that right?
If you were us and realize that you won't realistically be in the car until about NOON and have to be back at SFO 30 hours later, how would you break up this drive to enjoy as much as possible without being overly rushing?
Should we get to Carmel and then do Big Sur in the morning?
Should we try and squeeze in the aquarium the second day?
Thanks in advance....
