"That's quite the epic trip Mark! So I'm going to start with where I think you can skip. I think a lot of the tip-top of Northern California you can skip. I don't think the Nor Cal coastline really gets awesome until Fort Bragg in Mendocino County, where the coastline gets really dramatic. Stop at Glass Beach, which is really interesting and if you love beer, North Coast Brewing Company, which is one of my favorites. Continue down the coast past Point Arena and Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum and Sonoma County, which is a lot of people think for its wineries, but has great offbeat beaches as well. Sonoma County is my favorite California wine region, especially Healdsburg. From there, onto San Francisco. Between SF and L.A., the best coastal portion is between Santa Cruz and Morro Bay. I wrote a guide about traveling through that section here: >"  See More

"Hmm... You might try Solvang--a Danish village right in California. It's on your way from LA to SF; if you're taking Hwy 1 then veer off to the 101 after you pass Santa Barbara. What's interesting is I'm sure the town is "touristy"--yet I don't know any Californians who've been there (and very few even know it exists), nor do I know any tourists who have visited it while in California. Of course, if you've actually been to Denmark, this village may not interest you. Here's the town's website: !"  See More
