We plan on hopping from NC to San Francisco and staying there for two weeks (including flights). We're staying there for maybe 5 days and then traveling down to Big Sur. We haven't decided if we want to travel north to the Redwoods National State Park or even to Yosemite--this might just be too out of the way or too much being on the road since we absolutely want to go to Big Sur and staying in San Francisco, so we might just keep it down to two spots for our honeymoon since we'll be there for only two weeks. I don't have a good grasp on what the logistics are going to be, so I'm open to anything at this point.
Do you guys have any suggestions for itinerary? Cool areas to visit? Any suggestions on the areas I mentioned? Where to find good deals on plane tickets? Car rental/transportation suggestions? Food? Entertainment? Touristy and non-touristy things are welcome.
We haven't made any concrete plans other than San Francisco and Big Sur, so I'm just looking for any suggestions all around.
