Myself and my wife are looking to drive between LA and San Francisco. We arrive on 7th June 2012 and are planning on staying at Santa Monica for 3 nights before we hit the road. We've been thinking of staying 2 nights at Santa Barbara and possibly a couple of nights at Monterey but are unsure where to stay in between. We're a mid to late thirties couple who like nice restaurants and bars but who like to chill too! Has anybody got some good suggestions??
Thanks for your help.
