    Cali is basically one big movie set, but some of the scenic highlights are probably the Hollywood hills, Orange County beaches, stretches of California Highway One and Big Sur, the giant redwoods of the northern coast, and the vineyard regions around Santa Barbara and Napa to the north. Anyone else have recommendations?

    Not sure this will meet all your requirements, but you should check out "Top 10 LA Campsites" on GORP.com: http://gorp.away.com/gorp/location/ca/la_stars.htm.

    The closest airport to Universal Studios is Burbank Airport (BUR) also known as Bob Hope Airport. The closest airport to Knott's Berry Farm is John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, CA which is in Orange County. I would fly into Burbank, stay in a Hollywood Hotel near Universal Studios for the duration of my visit to Los Angeles and take one day to visit Knott's Berry Farm which would only be a 45 drive from your Hollywood Hotel then drive back in the evening.

    Assuming you're heading out from Las Vegas, I'd probably you drive over to Los Angeles and then make your way north along California Highway One. Not sure how long you have, but Santa Barbara is a really lovely place at which to stop. Maybe also spend a night or two up in the Big Sur area, before scheduling a stop in either Monterey or Carmel (Big Sur Nepenthe restaurant is a prime spot for a lunch stop with a view!). Carmel is very quaint and has some nice inns and guesthouses. You could also go a bit more upscale at somewhere like the Inn at Pebble Beach or Bernardus Lodge (http://away.com/resorts/bernardus-lodge-bl-hotelid53531.html) in this area. After Monterey, it's a fairly straight shot up to San Francisco, where you could obviously spend some more time sightseeing before flying out. Best advice, though, is not to overdo the driving and enjoy the scenery along this wonderful stretch of coastline (it can also get a little slow during peak travel seasonss).
