My husband and I are considering flying out to LAX on a Thursday morning (arriving sometime between 10am and noon) and renting a car to drive leisurely down the PCH stopping at a couple beaches/towns to walk, eat, shop. So, that is the first question -- what stops would you recommend?
We would like to get into San Diego anywhere between 6pm and 8pm. Is that drive doable from LAX to San Diego with a couple stops without feeling too rushed?
We have never been to San Diego and were debating whether we should stay for 4 nights (3 full days) or cut it down to 3 nights (2 full days) - any suggestions? We thought we would stay at a B&B over near Balboa Park. Any suggestions? We would like to see the Zoo and Sea World definitely. Of course, would like time to relax at the beach -- any suggestions for a beach to relax at. And, in general, any other suggestions for activities -- we enjoy seeing local neighborhoods, shopping and eateries. We love the outdoors so any hiking opportunities would be great.
Thanks in advance for your help.
