We are taking our 11 years old son to San Diego and LA this Spring. We planned to fly in and out of SNA. We'll drive down to Rancho Santa Fe and stay there for a few days for Legoland, SD zoo and others, then drive back up to stay close to SNA to visit Universal Studio and LA area for a few more days before flying home. Is this plan workable. As to where to stay, we have some places in mind but haven't made any reservations so any suggestions would be appreciated.
