Hey everyone. I am trying to plan a trip from July 9-13.This forum has been great but have a few questions about where to stay and what to do. We are a couple in our 30's with an almost 2 year old.
Wed: Arrive. Not sure what I want to do we will have the afternoon and an early dinner. Maybe Oldtown or beach? I am assuming my son is too young for the Midway. Something good to do in that area?
Saturday: Hollywood and Santa Monica
Sunday: fly home from LA.
I am trying to get an extra day for SD but not sure if it's possible. We are from Florida so no need for theme parks and while this isn't our beach vacation we do love our beach time. I would do the whole trip in SD but we have friends in both places.
Our budget is less than $200 for hotel. I know that beach areas are out for this budget (I can't do mom and pop hotels). We will have a car so that won't be an issue. Ideas of where to stay? Would at least like a decent pool if we are not near beach.
Would also like any restaurant recommendations. We love trying local flavor.
Any advice on how to travel cross country with a toddler? I am a little worried about the time change.
