We are planning a trip to the West Coast from the UK with our two teenage sons next summer - they will be 13 and 15. We will have three nights in San Diego but I'm unsure where we should stay.
We will want to be close to restaurants so we can walk out in the evenings and close enough to the main attractions (Balboa Park, the zoo, the beaches etc).
I would like some advice on the best area to stay. I've been to SD before, but that was many years ago! I've kind of narrowed our preferences down to Gaslamp and Mission Beach or Pacific Beach.
We will be doing a lot of travelling, sightseeing and hiking on our holiday, and San Diego will be one of our last stops, so we'd like to chill out and just do some fun, hassle-free stuff...
Any advice gratefully received. All hotel tips welcome too!
