Where to stay and what to see

I will be visiting the San Diego/LA area in June with my husband and two children (6&8). I was looking into recommendations on what to see (SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo, Disneyland, California Adventure, Legoland,beaches etc). We will be in the area 1 week. Also, I would like to stay in a Residence Inn and use my points. Does anyone know which is the best for proximity, cleanliness, etc. There are many Residence Inn's in the San Diego area (Mission Valley, Central, Mesa/Sorrento, La Jolla). I want something nice and close to everything. I've never been out to California so I would appreciate any advice.

La Jolla one is conveniently halfway between Sea World and Legoland. Doesn't sound like there's much that you want to do in Los Angeles so I'd say 3 nights Anaheim and 4 nights La Jolla.

I'm not familiar with the Residence Inn, but I do love La Jolla. I would stay in this area. It is very upscale with good shopping on Prospect, the La Jolla Cove and just an all around gorgeous area of San Diego. Try George's at the Cove for dinner if you want a fine dining experience. The Crab Catcher would be good for a family, they have a nice little outdoor patio area with pretty views of the ocean.

You will love SeaWorld, we went for the first time last month and were very impressed with the shows, quality of the exhibits and cleanliness of the park. I have some photos posted here of both La Jolla and SeaWorld. If you don't mind getting wet, try to arrive a little early to sit in the "spalsh zone" at the shows. The first 16 rows in the stadium, it's great fun! Take the Sky Ride over Mission Bay and don't miss the Journey to Atlantis ride! :)
