I can't thank you guys enough for the help! I'm glad that I could inspire some of you to take trips out this summer
We decided on staying three days in SF, one day in Napa, driving down the coast to Santa Cruz for one day, driving to Santa Barbara for one day, and driving to San Diego for 3 more days. Your recommendations helped us set that up! Now I just have to create a definitive list of bars/breweries/pubs that we want to visit at each location... I'll definitely be pulling from your lists!
