San Deigo


thinking of taking the fam for xmas.   Any thoughts on locations to stay, seems like there are quite a few parts of town worth considering.   

We've stayed a couple times at the Beachwalk Villas in Carlsbad with our kids. Might be a little too far out of San Diego - but it was a nice place. We stay in the 3 bedroom unit and it's plenty big enough for us and our gear.

Legoland for the kids, Aquarium @ Scripps and Dana Point whale watching for everyone. We were coming from the city and wanted something a little more small town and Carlsbad rocked it. We were able to walk from the place for food and drink and enough little shops to wander. Kids loved the surfing and Knockout Burger.

Those are good thoughts.   Much appreciated.    Had considered La Jolla but was afraid it would be too far away for the daily treks from everything.  It doesn't sound like that's the case considering Carlsbad is further north.   I had then started to migrate down the coast where things were a little less expensive and I could find a place directly on the beach but now starting to realize it ill be in the 60s and not warmer.   I will take a look at Carlsbad.
