A Little Getaway

In about a month boyfriend and I are taking a well (very well) deserved vacation. We kept going back and forth on where to go, but I don't really want to worry about plans and schedules and airports and stress. I want to just go. So instead we are taking 10 days off and driving up the coast. We have been to many of the places we plan on stopping before, but we just want to experience some new places, restaurants, and hotels along the way. 

So I am asking you, my dear readers, for any and all recommendations for places that are a must see or do and hotel and restaurant recommendations! 

We plan to stop in Santa Barbara to visit friends, stay an evening around Cambria (maybe a cute beach side inn), head up to Monterey for 2 days, head over to check out the Winchester House in San Jose (I have always wanted to go!) then end up for a few days in San Francisco where we will be going to the Americas Cup and spending the majority of our time. So flood my comment section with all of your favorite things and places in these areas! I can't wait to hear from you guys!

  2. You MUST go to Palazzio in Santa Barbara! It is the best Italian restaurant around and you'll smell of garlic still the next day. It's amazing! I go there every time I'm in Santa Barbara and haven't made it up there in a couple years. Here's the website: http://www.palazzio.com/index.html If you go please tell me about all the delicious food you ate so I can live vicariously through you :)

  6. The Metro Hotel in SF is perfect for a traveling couple!

    It's in the lower haight and is insanely well priced and the people who work there are amazing. I am not sure what they can offer in the way of parking, but it's worth a phone call for an $85/night stay.

  7. Have a wonderful trip! I did a similar trip last year and really enjoyed my time in Big Sur... BUT since that's not on the menu, I'd suggest a stop for lunch in Carmel by the Sea before you get into Monterey. It is one of the most charming places in all of California (to me) :)
