What should I see in San Diego, Sacramento, and driving in between? Within the next month, work is sending me (from the East Coast) to San Diego and I will then likely drive up to Sacramento.

Out of a week, I'll be tied up with actual work for about a day. I will probably head to San Francisco for a day or more, and I'm not too interested in LA but I could be persuaded otherwise for sure.
I assume I will drive up the I-5, but I am willing to detour from that and would be happy to take a more scenic route, although the 8 or 9 total driving hours is about the most I want to spend unless I'm detouring somewhere.
I'd like to spend a day or two at the beach, eat some In N Out, and see some quirky/off the beaten path things - touristy is okay but less preferred. I don't especially care about shopping.
Budget - I'm looking to be sensible but not necessarily to skimp, so assume that money is a consideration but not a huge one.
