Honeymooning in Cali,where to go?

Hi guys,I'm going to California next August for my honeymoon,but am abit stuck about what to do.
I'm there for 2weeks,but the place is so big and there's so much I could do I need to know what I must do whilst there.I've got a couple of things I've decided on already like renting a Harley for a couple of days(but not sure where to go),a couple of theme parks and if they're still about I want to see Metal Skool.
What else should I do?
Cheers

Which part of California will you be in the north or the south?

It's my home state so maybe I can help.

Lightbulb Re: Honeymooning in Cali,where to go?

If you like motorbikes you may like cars as well and I can recommend checking out ""Cruising Grant" Fridays in downtown Escondido.

http://sandiego.about.com/cs/familyfun/a/car_shows.htm

My parents used to live there and the scenic route up to Mt.Palomar (Hw76 ) and down to Julian (Hw78 ) are brilliant, both on bike or in a convertible. Palomar is famous for its observatory, Julian for apple pie.

If want to check out the ocean, check out La Jolla Cove, Point Loma and the Coronado peninsula. I used to love taking the scenic routes from Escondido to the Ocean, such as Del Dios highway (along Lake Hodges) and Via de la Valle.

As for San Diego itself, on most lists you will find Balboa park, the Gaslamp district and Old Town.

If you like touring, you cannot go wrong doing the coastal route: old highway 101.

Up from Del Mar (check the racetrack as well) via Solano, Cardiff all the way to Carlsbad (Legoland ) and Oceanside (Marina).

You can't go further along the coast because of Camp Pendleton MCB. But if you take I:5 north, the area around San Juan Capistrano is very nice as well. Anything north of SJC is considered greater LA, but there are some great places there as well: from Newport Beach all the way to Long Beach.

Re: Honeymooning in Cali,where to go?

Depends on what you and yours are like, but a girlfriend and I explored the northern California coast with a rental car with tent and sleeping bags in the trunk and it is one of the most romantic places we ever visited. Remote, beautiful, full of little hidden treasures. Cool in the summertime when parts of Cali are smoggy and baking.

There are lodging options ranging from really expensive boutique hotels and bed-and-breakfasts to campsites with stunning views. We did both, sometimes we camped, couple times we went posh. The best thing for a honeymooning couple (in my opinion) is that you have the chance to explore the coast and be spontaneous.
