Hello! We will be attending the Pageant of the Masters on a Sunday night mid August. We will be coming up from San Diego in the afternoon, possibly stopping at the pier in San Clemente or other suggestions you might have along the way.
My main question is to avoid high cost hotel for just one night we were thinking of leaving Laguna Beach and heading towards Las Vegas route after the show just a minimal distance. After looking at Google maps I see Corona, CA could be an option. Would there be any concern being on the CA-133N and CA-241N after dark? It looks to be 34 miles away so considering traffic I figure an hour drive time...
Where do you suggest we park coming in from San Diego that would give us the leg up on our travel? Do you think this is a good idea? Any suggestions for a dinner location prior to the Masters (on a budget)
Thanks in advance for your replies!
