'm a California native - lived in the Bay, the Inland Empire, Orange County, Sacramento and San Diego during my 22 years here.
HOWEVER, I'm stumped: a good friend is visiting from DC and has never visited the state before. She's flying into San Francisco on June 22 and flying out of San Francisco on June 29th. We have no other restrictions/places to be.
How can I give her the grand tour? What are the most important, quintessential California things to see? I'm considering driving down the coast to show her the diversity.
Right now, I'm thinking places like Chinatown in San Francisco, driving along PCH, Venice Beach and fish tacos in San Diego are all essential Calfornia viewing for a first-timer, but I'm overwhelmed in planning this. Suggestions?
Bonus points: Should we take the train or drive down the coast?
