Hey /o/, I am planning to drive down from San Jose to LA next weekend to visit some friends and finish off my winter break with a trip.
My plan is to drive along highway 1 and visit different coastal town on the way until I reach LA. What are some of the towns that /o/ recommend?
Pismo for sure if you can drive onto the beach and camp. Not really that much of interest on the route aside from the road IMO, I like going North on 1 more.
How many days are you alotting yourself and what budget?
Also are you interested in historical or informative stuff about towns/places or literally just like to sorta drive through and see em?
Definitely gonna go by there after stopping at SLO
I am planning to leave San Jose on Friday (morning?) and then leave LA by Sunday Mid afternoon so I will get back to San Jose by Sunday night.
I am definitely into historic towns but I don't think I will have enough time to go through all of them. I think I might be looking at driving through and maybe stop by and take some pictures then move on to the next spot.
so it sounds like you wanna be in LA by like later night friday?
I have some ideas but a bit busy at the moment, will post again to this thread in like 3ish hours, just wanted to OP to know didn't forget
I am aiming to be in LA by Friday night as I will be crashing at my friend's dorm at UCLA. If not, I will have to shell out extra cash for sleeping which I don't really have a budget for since my friend's place is free. I will stay tuned for your reply.
okay OP I would assume since you're in SJ that Carmel/Monterey isn't of interest since it's 'close' to you
other stuff of interest is
Mission La Purisma in Lompoc
-depending on how close you stick to 1 in the southern section -Solvang
You have a fairly good list of places to hit already, if I was you I'd leave SJ area like an hour or 2 before sunrise to make it through 17/101 before actually getting to 1 when the sun is up and enabling you to relax on the rest of your trip down
