Drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles is an amazing road trip. We overnighted in Carmel, Cambria and Santa Barbara and would have booked an extra night in S Barbara in hindsight. The road hugs the rugged coastline for most of the journey which means lots of hairpin bends but a new vista aound each turn. Lots of wildlife to see along the route and a plethora of golden eagles.
There are plenty of pull offs to park and take photos and I would recommend the drive South as you are on the sea side of the road and you can pull over without crossing the highway.Try not to go in june as locally it is called the june gloom caused by warm air from the land meeting the cold ocean and forming fog or mist along the coastal strip. Temperatures can be 20 F lower than a couple of miles inland.
