Hello fellow advisors! My daughter should hear in the next month whether she is accepted to UCSD or UCSB. Regardless, she chose for her special senior year spring break trip with me, SoCal! I just booked our flights, but I have no idea what to do or where to stay. Here are our only parameters: She needs to visit UC Santa Barbara and San Diego where we are there. We are flying into LAX. I'm trying to come up with a nice itinerary for school visiting, sightseeing, and beach time. I'm nearly positive we are going to have to rent a car for the duration, though I will be honest and say I'm a bit nervous to drive in the famed Cali traffic.
Trying to decide between hotel or condo. Not sure I want to eat out every meal, but maybe that is a given since we'll be traveling in a 220 mile area. Any options for B and B's? Would like something different. We are into adventures with food, etc. My daughter and I are both fairly low maintenance, outdoorsy and high energy. Trying to stay on a budget for sleeping so we can spend more on fun and food.
So, Santa Barbara to San Diego and everything in between. I want to hear from the experts, locals, and those with a heart for SoCal! Thanks in advance!
