    Hi Rosie!

    I agree with Ron, take the 101 South! This will be a gorgeous coastal drive from Oxnard to San Diego. Make sure to stop in Malibu Beach, have lunch at Malibu Farm Cafe, and explore Point Dume State Beach. It is so peaceful there!

    Make a stop in Laguna Beach and go to Victoria Beach, there is a really cool castle looking tower called La Tour (French for Tower)

    Victoria Beach(how cool is that!?)

    I also really like San Clemente, a small beach town that is about 45 minutes outside of San Diego. San Clemente's Little Inn by The Beach is where I stayed and thought it was the cutest place.

    Have a great drive!

    I would explore north county San Diego if you get down that far. Encinitas is great, Del Mar is nice, and La Jolla is beautiful. Walk down to La Jolla cove and enjoy the beautiful beach. Restaurants are pricey but if you stop for lunch you can enjoy the phenomenal view.

    While you're passing through Laguna Beach be sure to stop for Margaritas and Nachos at Las Brisas. Sit outdoors on their patio. Day or at sunset, it's a really special place with a spectacular view. Walk around the town as well. Great shops and galleries.

    I just stayed at Tower23 in Pacific/Mission Beach, San Diego and loved it. They have free beach cruisers to use and an awesome sun deck overlooking the ocean.

    Plus, the BEST carnitas tacos are just out the front door at Ramiro's Taco Shop.

    Ramiro's Taco ShopYou'll be in a busy, but not overcrowded area if you stay here. And you'll be close to both La Jolla Cove and downtown San Diego. It was perfect for me and I'm like you, totally not into crowds.

    Hope this helps! Happy Travels!

    Follow the 101 South, plenty of small hotels along the way. Very scenic.

    You can spend a day going all the way to San Diego and exploring this and that. On the return, take Highway 1 for a different experience.

    I would advise you to stop at Crystal Cove State Park, just south of Newport Beach and Corona Del Mar, which in itself has two beautiful beaches. But Crystal Cove is unique, as it was the set for Hollywood movies' locations. Set designers built shacks/cottages on this beach, and people moved into them. There were residents at this beach until the 1990s, then the state took over and refurbished the cottages in the historic style. The cottages are adorable, and you can rent them for the night. This beach also has an ocean view restaurant right on the sand. The cove itself has picturesque rock formations. You must park on the east side of Pacific Coast Highway; a shuttle will take you to the beach, or you can walk the underpass. If you eat at the restaurant, they will validate your parking. This is a magical location. Have a great trip.
