Unknown, insider tips for West Coast tour from LA to SF?

We are traveling for 3 weeks on a west coast tour from L.A. to S.F. Of course we will go to the big places, but what insider tips do you have for us anywhere there?

Thanks!

    Play ping pong, grab a beer and mac and cheese at Tee Off Bar in SF (dive bar with gourmet chef/owner) Then go for a walk along cliffs to get an awesome view of the Golden Gate Bridge (or do the walk first and finish off with a beer)

    Hi Mischa, i can recommend Hearst Castle on the way up north, as well as Big Sur.

    The drive between SF & LA is chock full of fun places to stop. Although it was mentioned before, definitely check out Big Sur for hiking & beaches. At the very least, the drive down Highway 1 is gorgeous and there are plenty of places to pull over and take photos. Definitely stop by Santa Barbara and walk around downtown and at the beach. If you're there for breakfast or brunch, eat at Tupelo Junction Cafe. Best breakfast of my life. If you want to stay in a quirky little hotel along Highway 101, definitely check out The Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo. Have fun!

    Oh boy, do I ever know the answer to this one! I lived in Monterey for four years. In fact, I worked for the tourism board and posted my favorite secret spots for a road trip right here. Don't miss the wildlife viewing around Moss Landing State Beach, which has sea lions, otters, seals and all kinds of other things. The best deep fried artichoke hearts are at the The Crown & Anchor in Monterey - they're a local bar specialty. You can buy a bottle of wine at any of the wine tasting rooms (Pierce Ranch Vineyards is a personal favorite) and bring it to the Carmel Beach City Park.

    Absolutely travel along the old Hwy 1, right along the ocean. Stop at any town you feel like-my favorites were Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, and Carmel. Make sure to take in the views of the ocean just south of Carmel, especially if you can pack a picnic. Hearst Castle is absolutely worth seeing!!

    The Point Lobos State Reserve between Big Sur and Carmel is an easy hike and very dramatic and beautiful. It's a complex coastline and the trails follow that pretty closely. Many places along the trails are enhanced further by the sweeping trees "carved" by the wind. Not to be missed if you like this kind of thing.

    If you plan to make it to Santa Barbara, see if there is a music event at the Santa Barbara Bowl, which is a great outdoor music venue with shows throughout the summer. It's right in downtown Santa Barbara. I used to live a few blocks from it. Also downtown is the Santa Barbara County Office. Both the building, completed in 1929, and the grounds are stunning. You can see all of Santa Barbara from the top of the tower.
