HOMEWARD BOUND

 It’s your final day in California, so enjoy one last round of pancakes for breakfast before heading north for your return flight home. From Monterey, it’s around 105 miles up Hwy-1 and Hwy-101 to both SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT and OAKLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (you turn off Hwy-101 for the I-888 to Oakland); the drive will take between 1 hour 45 minutes and 2 hours 15 minutes, depending on the traffic.
