We will be driving from San Francisco airport to Monterey for a few days. Then drive to Napa for a couple days then finish our California vacation in San Francisco for a few days. Any suggestions for sites to see to break up the drive and restaurants along those routes will be appreciated.

    On the way to Monterey, a stop in Santa Cruz for a meal downtown or at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. http://beachboardwalk.com/ Don't forget Carmel-by-the-Sea only a few miles further down from Monterey for shopping and dining. See: "CARMEL-by-the-SEA" - Carmel-by-the-Sea by travelgourmet Traveling from Monterey to Napa, think of the song "Do you know the way to San Jose?" and see the Winchester Mystery House: http://www.winchestermysteryhouse.com/ By Napa for some fun is the Fairfield HQ for the Jelly Belly Factory that has tours."JELLY BELLY CANDY COMPANY" - Fairfield Things to Do Tip by travelgourmet

    Oh, I do have a few tips and reviews on restaurants in Napa and the valley: "THE CALIFORNIA WINE COUNTRY" - Napa by travelgourmet On the way back to San Francisco, there is Muir Woods and the town of Sausalito. See the VT Travel Guide for Sausalito: Sausalito Travel Guide
