Not sure I follow. Too far inland to be considered the coast, or just that it's only California? If the first, all of California is the West Coast of the country for those of us here in Indiana. Either way, any thoughts on sight seeing along that route?
Half Moon Bay Area, Santa Cruz, Big Sur and Highway 1 down to San Simeon, stop there and see the Hearst Castle. In Paso Robles, Firestone Walker is a must, and Barrelhouse is also good. There are many towns to check out on the way from there to LA.

Maybe north of SF can be the next trip, and on into Oregon and Washington. And I do like some old Rasputin

Yeah, I'm just being a weisenheimer.

Do come see us in Oregon sometime. It's quite nice, and there's beer.

The choice of north or south depends on what you are looking for. North of the Bay Area has some of the oldest living organisms on earth in the form of massive trees. It is green and beautiful, but the beaches are cold. If you want to swim, south is the better choice. I love both drives but for different reasons.

Certainly, but either choice is a good choice when it comes to beer.
