In May we are planning a driving trip down the Calif. Coast from San Francisco to San Clemente, CA. At one point we will have to go thought Los Angeles probably on the 405 freeway. I wife is very nervous about traveling this freeway. My question is there a better route to take or anything else that I should take into account. I am hopping to get on the 405 at about 2:00 PM, which may avoid the high traffic periods, plus I don’t thing I should have to do a lot of lane changes. Any help would be appreciated.
