Southern California for a young family

Jump to last reply

We are a family of five heading to Southern California at the end of March. Our kids are 10, 8, and 4. We have never been to California before. We want to spend about a week seeing big attractions and also beaches, local attractions. We definitely want to go to Legoland, Disneyland, and Sea World with quiet days in between. We are more interested in the San Diego area, and being close to the ocean, not L.A.
Where should we stay? We are open to hotels or renting a condo.
Should we stay in more than one city, or find one good spot and commute?
What are the best beaches for kids, to play in tide pools?
What are some family friendly local attractions in San Diego?

Please help me plan!
