CA Pismo Beach.jpg
Leave San Francisco behind as you collect your car and head towards the Pacific Coast Highway - regarded as one of America's Most Scenic Drives .

Few stretches of coastal road anywhere in the world can compare to the Pacific Coast Highway.  Forested mountains slope off into azure blue water; great, jagged rocks jut out of crashing surf like breaching whales; and hilltops are crowned with picturesque towns, spectacular mountains and old mission churches dating back to colonial days.

Take your time along the way with stops in  Monterey, Big Sur and Hearst Castle.  Your base for the next two nights is your choice: Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, Shell Beach, San Simeon or Cambria.

We'll help you decide which location is best for your family .

Days 9-10 Ventura Beach

Your journey continues along the Pacific Coast Highway to Ventura Beach.  Take the opportunity to stop en route at the pretty Danish town of Solvang or enjoy a spot of lunch and shopping in Santa Barbara.

Your two night stay in the beach town of Ventura will allow everyone some time to chill-out.  This is a great spot to enjoy a whale watching cruise or stretch the legs with a bike ride to the pretty mountain village of Ojai. 

Days 11-13 Los Angeles & the Beaches

After your California coast adventure it's time for a three night stay in the Los Angeles region. For families wanting to end on the beach, we recommend Surf City, USA - Huntington Beach or the lively seaside resort of Santa Monica.

It's time to say goodbye to the the Golden State before your early evening flight home.
