My wife and I will be taking a road trip vacation beginning in Monterey on the 28th of July. I am appealing to the locals to see if there are any "must hit" spots for food, drink, local culture, and of course, photos. We are heading up the 101 on the way up and making our way down the 1 to Pismo Beach stopping in Morro Bay and at Hearst Castle. Our last over night stop will be in Santa Barbara on Friday the 3rd of August. I am looking forward to TONS of photo stops at scenic areas etc. Any tips or pointers would be greatly appreciated!
