Hi, I've read lots of posts and think I'm just getting myself more and more confused, so decided it was time to ask!
My husband is travelling over next week for a brief business trip (from Australia) and is now bringing our 18yo son with him. He will have a car and be working a few hours each day in Encinitas, and visiting friends in Cardiff, and I am trying to find some accommodation that will allow our son to get out and explore a bit during they day.
My original thought was to book accommodation in Del Mar but its looking to me (from google maps) that most places don't have terribly much around them, and I assume limited transportation access from what I'm reading?
He's not a theme park kid, but would enjoy looking around town and maybe the university area, beaches, shopping (especially outlet sales), and is currently deciding which historical areas he'd like to experience, so I'd like to find a suitable area that allows reasonable access to Encinitas and easy access to transport into SD and areas.
Budget is $150-200 - included parking and breakfast would be nice but not deal breakers, and free wifi. Any advice that you can offer would be awesome, thanks!
