Where in Southern California to visit between Christmas and New Year's?

Jump to last reply

DH and I would like to visit some part of Southern California from December 26 to Jan 1 or 2. We would have to fly in to either San Diego or LAX.

DH has never been to California. I have been a few times. I want him to get to see and do as much as possible in a 5 or 6 night stay.

We are in our late 50's, can walk but are not in great shape. I know he wants to tour a studio, see the ocean, Hollywood, Sea World.

I am thinking 3 nights in San Diego and 3 nights somewhere near LA.

I was just in San Diego in April, and loved it. However, we would not be able to stay where I stayed then, which was near Claremont Mesa. (Home of nephew's friend.)

We don't want to spend more tha $150. per night on a hotel. We like HIlton properties, especially, Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites, and Hampton Inns.

We are not foodies and are not interested in wineries.

Suggestions on location, activities, accommodations are welcome.

And no, we cannot go at any other time of the year. That is the ONLY week DH is off.
