Adrift in Southern California...

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for a few suggestions on how to spend a few last days on our trip to San Diego area in late March-early April.

Itinerary - we fly in on a Friday, drive to Yuma to spend a couple of days visiting a cousin (wintering over from Pacific NW), then a week in Carlsbad. That should give us sufficient time for both Carlsbad and San Diego attractions (such as Old Town and Zoo). I grew up in the Calif Bay Area and have some familiarity but not too much for So Calif. We think of ourselves as middle-aged but are closer to old fartdom (at least DH is).

We check out on Sunday and our flight out is Wednesday mid-morning. Thoughts include either:

- Spending some time viewing desert blooms (Joshua Tree and nearby areas - where?
or
- Santa Barbara - missions, etc
or
- Big Bear (we live in Florida)
or
- So Cal wineries
or
-some combination of those
or
- ?

We are not much for upscale shops or too much beach time. We do love day hikes, historical sites, wine, and the occasional snow (only on vacation).

Any recommendations?
