My FI and I are not really beach people so we are planning to go on our honeymoon to California. I am leaning more toward San Fransisco and Wine Country. We were thinking of doing a few days in San Fran, going to the Sonoma area for 2-3 nights, then back to San Fran for a few days. However, now my fiance is saying he'd like to start in San Diego and make our way up to San Fransisco - about an 8-10 hour drive depending on the route you take.
Anyways, my question, as I am very unfamiliar with CA and it's cities - are there any places you would recommend we stop on our way from San Diego to San Fransisco? It would probably only be for a night and our itinerary would look like this: San Diego, 3 nights - City ?, 1 night - San Fransisco, 3 nights - Sonoma area, 2 nights.
Otherwise, I'd rather stay in the Northern CA area but my FI is worried there won't be as much to do - any opinions on this if you have been on a trip to the area?
