Half Moon Bay to Santa Barbara

We will be doing Half Moon Bay to Santa Barbara the first 3 weeks of October. Looking for input on where to stay and what to do. Any help appreciated! Pulling a trailer - not resort types.

Im not sure on places to stay but some great places to check out are Hearst Castle in San Simeon and Solvang, CA. Or might want to consider stopping at the missions along the way (the California mission trail) Santa Barbara is the 10th mission if I remember correctly.

I would not dream of taking a large MH much less tow a travel trailer down Hwy 1 between Carmel and San Simeon. Better to cut over to Hwy 101 from Monterey and cut back at Paso Robles.

I agree with elkhornsun about Hwy1. North of Santa Barbara at the north side of Goleta is El Capitan State Beach. We will be staying there the first couple of weeks of December because they can handle our 40' rig. There are lots of other state beach camping along the coast down there that could handle your trailer depending on its length.

I would not worry about driving that road. I have done many, many times in my MH and towing. There are some spots where you take your time, but it is a beautiful drive and you don't want to miss. By the way, there is a nice campground at Laguna Seca Raceway. If it is not a big race weekend, that is a great place to stay. Lots of the sites are on the tops of the hills with nice views. Good base camp for Monterey, Carmel, etc.

Actually, looking at Google Earth, I take back what I said about driving Hwy 1. It could be a bit arduous in places for big rigs like ours at 40' plus a toad, but overall it is a standard width road throughout. One must always check for reports of road wash-outs that haven't yet been repaired, but I think the last wash out was in 2006 near Half Moon Bay. That was repaired and reopened by August of that same year.

Happy traveling!

Google hwy 1 delays. It's a constant construction zone.
