My dad is taking my nieces (age 13 and 14) to San Diego because they want to try to surf, go to the zoo and Sea World . . . I am leaning towards putting him in a hotel in the Sea World area (La Jolla is out of his price range) but I guess he received an offer from the Carlsbad by the Sea hotel and is interested in that.
My thought was that a San Diego location would be better for what he wants to do, they can see seals in La Jolla, surf anywhere along there, zoo, etc and that there would be lots of restaurant options.
He is NOT a friendly or patient driver at all . . . he lives in a town of 14,000 people and has no patience for traffic, does not necessarily pay attention to signage, does not believe in using his blinker . . .etc . . . soooooo . . . I just dont think he would enjoy being based in Carlsbad, but i dont know . . . with the exception of the zoo and Sea World, wondering what folks think as far as restaurant variety for teenage girls, and other things to do . . . . my guess is that there will be maybe two half days at the beach and they will be over it . . . but just a guess !!
Thanks for any ideas . . .
