We have three days/two nights to get to San Fran (in April) and would appreciate some ideas on where the best place to stay would be. Ideally, we'd like to stay in one place for two nights - somewhere a little more than halfway to San Fran would be nice.
The options we have so far are Santa Cruz and Monterey. We are not bothered about being near the beach, but want somewhere that you can go for a nice meal in the evening and during the day have plenty of places to visit within a 45-minute drive.
Any suggestions are most welcome!
