My husband and I will rent a car at LAX and drive the coast up north and stop off at the beautiful spots along the way. We've been to San Francisco so can skip SF and end in San Jose where we would fly home from. Would appreciate your suggestions for how to drive the route and what to see, how many nights recommended in various spots etc. Our travels would start on a Tuesday in March and would end in San Jose on Sunday. Itinerary suggestions please. Thanks!
