Re: Hoiliday in california
If it's your first visit to the states, then you should take HWY1 North till at least Monterey. Some of the most beautiful scenery we have. BTW Dan's shop is right off HWY1 just passed Monterey. From there you can go East to HWY101 North, then to Eastbound on 152 to HYW5 North. 5 will take you into Sacramento. Sacramento is about an hour and a half away from many ski resorts. Kirkwood being the deepest and steepest.
You'll need to try a warm Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut, an In-N-Out burger, San Francisco Sourdough Bread. Make sure it's not some willie nillie grocery store brand of sourdough. Even better...Clam chowder served in a round sourdough loaf. We also have some of the best Chinese food in the country. Since you say the exchange rate is good, try a Dim Sum meal at the Hong Cong Flower Lunch. There's also a famous steak house in San Francisco called Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Rare is cold on the inside, sizzling on the outside.
