We are travelling from Australia in March 2013, and our best flight options mean we have to arrive on Good Friday March 29th, and I am stumped as to what we should do during these first few days, given I expect large crowds and possibly major traffic issues across easter. We are leaving Disney etc till the end of the trip, we are here for a month, so that shouldn't be a problem and we will drive to Vegas in between, but I just cannot work out whether driving up the PCH maybe towards monterey? would be wise during these busy days? are we crazy to think of this? Any suggestions appreciated, we have been to LA numerous times, so dont need to do any touristy things. Just wondering where to avoid being totally consumed by crowds for a few days, whilst still enjoying lovely CA. Thanks in advance.
