We have a conference in San Diego this spring and are planning on staying there 2-3 days, then driving up to LA. We are not interested in celebrities, but would love to spend some time near the water and see the amusement parks. The trip in total will be about a week, but we have some flexibility. We are traveling with teenagers. Their current list of interest include:
La Jolla tide pools
LegoLand (nostalgia sake)
Is there anything else along these lines or near the ocean we should check out? We have been to San Diego before, not interested in Sea World or the zoo, any other suggestions? If there are areas of beach we should see for beauty, shell seeking, etc we'd be interested in those.
What is the best route-wise for seeing the attractions listed above in LA? We will be flying out of San Diego again at the end of the trip.
Appreciate your help!
