Where to Stay While in LA and San Diego?

Jump to last reply

My DH and I are traveling with our three teen girls (18, 16, 13) to So. Cal in late August. Trying to figure out where to stay while in LA and San Diego. Have heard Santa Monica is good for the LA area and Mission Beach for the San Diego area. We are planning to rent on VRBO as we can get at least two bedrooms for the price of one hotel room (all five of us in one room, sharing one bath, does not work well). I am looking for areas that are safe, convenient and near activities, shopping and restaurants. While in San Diego, the girls want to learn to surf and go kayaking, paddle boarding, ride bikes,etc... We will have a car.
