    We were just there 2 summers ago in a car, and I said, "I am so glad we did not bring the RV!" It is very very curvy. I think you can do it, but it won't be enjoyable for the driver anyway.

    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).

    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
