Hubby and I are going on a belated honeymoon/first anniversary trip this Saturday. Can anyone recommend a good route from Sonoma to Monterey that will be semi-scenic but not take all day?
This is the route google is suggesting (along with 2 alternates)…but I have no idea about traffic delays or anything like that. I was thinking if we do this route we could maybe go down 17 to Santa Cruz and catch Hwy 1 for some scenery?
Thanks for any help!

Bump for any california bees that might be on!

Going through the East Bay- Via 37-80-780-680-101-156-1 would probably be the fastest. I imagine traffic on 101 South to SF is going be be not so pleasant since the Bay Bridge will be closed this weekend so I’d avoid the GG bridge and many of the other freeways that act as detours for those who rely on the Bay Bridge.
If you want to add a scenic option take 17 from 680 which will take you to Santa Cruz and connect to 1 from there.
There will be traffic but most of the time it should be smooth sailing, there’s always traffic going through the East Bay.
