We love the sound of an iconic road trip — and a classic drive down the coast of Cali is just music to our ears (Beach Boys, included!). We can’t help but picture ourselves cruising along Highway One while the sun is setting, top down in a vintage convertible and just soaking it all in!
From stunning views intermingled with wining and dining — and some serious R&R — here’s our version of the perfect All-American California road trip (ITKE perks & discounts, of course), which is sure to be calling your name.
