Where is your favorite place to vacation w/in CA? My son and I try to go to Big Bear a couple of times a year--more if possible.

I love Cambria. Right on the ocean, plenty of places to walk to if you stay in town, and a short hop to Hearst Castle. Even though I've been there many many times, that place never ceases to amaze me. Finally went on one of the night tours a couple years back, and it was one of the most amazing things I've done. Got to watch the sunset standing next to a roman pool looking out across actual roman ruins. You are on top of the hill and it seems like you can see forever!

That sounds quite lovely. Last year when my son and I were on our road trip, we went North thru CA--wanted to go on the coast, but it was taking too long--went on 101 to Santa Barbara, then SLO, finally headed to 5. We were going to stay w/ friends in Napa, and couldn't wait to get there. Napa was lovely, too. The MOST $$$ place I bought gas on the trip was Dunsuir, CA, off I-5.

dh and I, BK (before kids), used to drive up 395. The drive itself is awesome, with the Sierras to your left and the desert to your right as you wend your way up toward Tahoe. We LOVED to stay/explore Mammoth Lakes area (summer we'd camp at the end of the loop below Devil's Postpile, and take showers there in the campsite area, supplied by natural hot springs! Hike to many lakes/waterfalls). Gotta drive out to see Bodie, the ghost town. Never visited Mono Lake, with the weird tufa formations, but have seen many posters of it. It's just a great meander.

'Course, I'd love to visit Yosemite and Sequoia parks again .. .
