We are planning late august 2-week trip to San Diego with 2 kids - 2 and 5 yo.
We would like to be on or really close to the beach where kids could play in the water. The problem is that my son is really scared of waves, and will only get close to the water if it is calm. At the same time we would love to be in the "fun" place - close to the restaurants, bordwalks, attractions, etc. I was thinking about Mission Beach area, does it have beaches where kids could swim? If yes, then where - ocean or bay? If not, what are other areas to look at?
Thanks a lot!
