We will be traveling to San Diego for the first time in July with our 14 and 15 year olds. In reading through the forum, I'm trying to find the right place to stay where there would be enough to keep the kids happy and allow us to relax a little and do some sight seeing. I thought the pacific beach/mission bay area looks like the best choice. We would like a resort type place with some activities for the kids. I thought Pacific Heights and Ocean Park inn looked like nice places where the kids could venture out on the boardwalk a bit on days that we wanted to relax on the beach. We will have a car and plan to do the zoo, possibly seaworld etc. Also thought the Catamaran looks nice, but on bay side so assuming no big waves. Any thoughts? Any places I am missing. Would love a suite if we can find one, those at Pacific Heights are a little steep at $600 per night.
