San Francisco, California Coast & Los Angeles Fly-Drive holiday


Day 1 - UK to San Francisco

Fly from London to San Francisco, arriving later the same day. On arrival make your way to your chosen hotel, for a three night stay - we have a range to choose from, and your length of stay in San Francisco is flexible.

Days 2-3 - San Francisco

Spend the next few days exploring San Francisco. Perhaps prebook our Yosemite National Park day trip (from £114 per person). A visit to San Francisco would not be complete without a sightseeing trip to the majestic scenery of Yosemite National Park, where you can see dramatic mountains, spectacular waterfalls and the renowned El Capitan rock face.

Day 4 - San Francisco to Monterey

Collect your rental car from the San Francisco depot, and head out of town towards Monterey. We’d suggest following Pacific Highway 1 along the coast via Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz (approx 120 miles / 2 hours 30 mins, plus stops), but if you fancy heading in the wrong direction then start by driving north across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to take in the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore, before retracing your steps south. On arrival in to Monterey check in to your hotel for a two night stay.

Day 5 - Monterey

Spend the day exploring Monterey, a working class town with its eyes on the sea - the aquarium is impressive and developments such as Cannery Row and Fisherman’s Wharf have added appeal.

Day 6 - Monterry to Pismo Beach

Continue along Pacific Highway 1 to Pismo Beach (approx 150 miles / 3 hours, plus stops) - there’s a lot to see on the way, and we’d suggests making stops at Carmel, Piedras Blancas elephant seal rookery, San Simeon & Hearst Castle, and San Luis Obispo on the way. The section along Big Sur is particularly dramatic, so allow plenty of time! Check in to your hotel in Pismo Beach for a two night stay.

Day 7 - Pismo Beach

Relax in Pismo Beach today, taking in the laid-back charms of this seaside town - the beach is wide and glorious. For a detour with a difference, head to the dunes at Guadalupe, where the Lost City of DeMille - a movie set from The Ten Commandments - is buried beneath the sand.

Day 8 - Pismo Beach Los Angeles

Continue onwards to Los Angeles (approx 200 miles / 3 hours 15 mins, plus stops), with lots to see on the way. We’d head to the coast at Gaviota to avoid the busiest roads, and take in quirky Solvang on the way - mini-Denmark in California! Swanky Santa Barbara, exclusive Malibu and LA-on-sea Santa Monica are all on the way. On arrival in to LA drop your car off at the airport car hire depot and grab a cab to your chosen hotel, for a three night stay. A full range of hotels is available, and alternative durations are also possible.

Days 9-10 - Los Angeles
Spend the next few days exploring Los Angeles. Prebook a Warner Brothers Studio Tour (from £44 per person), your chance to get closer than ever to the legendary entertainment you know and love. View the real sets where the greatest names in entertainment made history. Get ready to touch, tour and explore the iconic backlot that brought ARGO and BATMAN to the big screen. From THE BIG BANG THEORY to FRIENDS, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood takes you behind-the-camera for a revealing look at how the magic is made.

Day 11 - Return

Make your way to Los Angeles airport for your return flight the UK, arriving the next day.
