I've received some good advice here and am considering changing my itinerary. We have 5 nights total. I was going to do 2 in san fran, pick up the rental car and do 2 nights in Monterey and then 1 more night in san Fran before flying out. Some have suggested 3 nights in san Fran and then last 2 in Monterey. My question is.. our flight (domestic) leaves at 10:05 am.. what time would we need to leave Monterey to safely make the flight if we went this route?
Thanks again so much to all of you for the advice!
