The only accommodation currently booked is the 2 nights in a Yurt in Malibu. Please feel free to add thoughts and opinions on our plan. We understand will be driving and moving around a lot but just want to make sure this is doable, cheers!

The 20th should not be a long drive—Highway 1 reopens today. You should be staying the night before somewhere south of Big Sur, like Morro Bay.

Don’t forget to see Hearst Castle. Hopefully the Neptune Pool renovation will be finished by then. It was supposed to be done by now!

And skip Lompoc, stay on US 101 and visit Buellton instead. (Unless you are obsessed with the Air Force or federal prisons.)

If this is your version of a honeymoon. just drive drive with very little time to see the place, for it. Except for the chill in the Yurt which sounds like fun .. it seems rushed very rushed.

With a week or so I would have done either SoCal or NorCal but you have tickets so enjoy

Thanks for the responses.

Ya we will be a little rushed but we like going on adventures and drives. We have the overnight when we arrive plus the next full day at each place so hopefully it we wont feel to rushed.
