Highway 17 or Highway 9 between Los Gatos and Santa Cruz, CA, or Highway 1 up by Mendocino. I prefer Highway 17, very nice scenery and you can enjoy whipping around the turns.

I'm taking my wife's 2005 W203 6-speed Coupe on the Blue Ridge Parkway next week. One of the best roads ever IMO. I've ridden it on my sport touring motorcycle many times. My friend in a Dodge Viper and I are going to end up at The Dragon with a good ride on the Cherohala Skyway.

I've never done a road trip like this in an automobile, only on motorcyle, many times. I think the little C230 Coupe will be a wonderful companion, and I plan to have the panoramic top opened most of the time.
