I am trying to decide how to allocate our short time(8 days plus one travel) that we will have in California. We will visit San Francisco (2 days), Carmel (1 or 2 days?) Los Angelos( 1 day)and San Diego (2 or 3 days?). We will be driving down the coast from SF to Carmel. Would we be better off driving a bit south of Carmel to Point Lobos and just heading on to San Diego (we will have to drive interstate to San Diego because of time limitations), and spending extra time in San Diego, or should we venture on south of Carmel for a bit. This question is in regard to coastline views, beaches, etc.
