    US Hwy 101 is one of the most beautiful drives I have ever taken! There are only restrictions on RVs that are longer than 40 feet, so you should be fine. Below is a link to a website that will provide you with information on the RV parks along your journey. http://www.ehow.com/list_5890466_rv-parks-along-hwy-california.html

    Sea Ranch Lodge or Nick's Cove might be good picks for the start of your trip. If you're the outdoorsy type, this article from Outside magazine last year might offer up some ideas: http://outside.away.com/outside/destinations/200807/weekend-road-trip-oregon-california.html (OK, all the references to the breweries got my attention). Hope this

    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).

    If you are more into wine country and utter relaxation, I'd say to head north and hit Sonoma and Napa. Make appointments in advance for the volcanic mudbaths (Indian Springs spa in Calistoga is my favorite) and massages, and of course visit the wineries, plus there are biking and hiking trails, small towns, great restaurants, and even a safari: www.safariwest.com. Yeah, a safari in the middle of wine country with giraffes, monkeys, tigers, and other wild animals. Bizarre, but fun!
