Hi! Hoping someone on this board can offer me some advice...
I am travelling to Southern California in mid-March with 3 of my friends for our college spring break. We are all 21-22 year old females. We are hoping to stay in several different hotels and work our way down the coast over a week in March.
We'd like to spend two nights in either Newport beach or Laguna beach. I was wondering if anyone on these boards have any suggestions for places to stay that are relatively inexpensive (ie. around $100/night), and close to the beach. We will be renting a car but once we get to the hotel, we hope to walk everywhere, so we'd like to stay someplace that has shopping, restaurants and bars within walking distance, preferably where other college-aged people hang out.
Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!
