So the lady, the dog, and I are heading on spring break this weekend. Our spring break will consist of visiting colleges, that we were accepted to, stopping at breweries, and camping.
So, we are leaving from LA on the 10th, 2 nights in Santa Cruz-ish, 1 night in Santa Rosa-ish, 2 nights in Arcata-ish, 1 night in Stinson Beach-ish, and 1 night in Big Sur-ish.
I have quite the long list of breweries to hit on the way there and back. Some of the well known ones; Firestone, Russian River, Lost Coast, Bear Republic, North Coast, Lagunitas, Moylans, Drakes, Marin, Anderson Valley...
Any other suggestions? We are going all over. I have another list that has around 20 or so more breweries depending on time/mood/money. Any thing I shouldn't miss?
Route: 101 from LA to Santa Cruz, 880 to 580 through east bay to the 101 to santa rosa, 101 to arcata, 101 to the 1 back to the 101 down to golden gate national rec area/ stinson beach, the 1 to Big Sur, then the 1 to the 101 back to LA.
Sounds like an epic journey to me.
What do ya'll think?
Suggestions, tips, grub, grog, campsites, etc?
