I have to be in LA on Tuesday, April 1st by 11 am. I live in Boston and I figured if I'm going all the way to the west coast, I might as well see as much as possible. I hear SD is amazing so here's what I was thinking - why not fly (from Boston) to SD on Friday, spend the weekend there, then head to LA! I found a very cheap directly flight I just can't say no to (only $129).
I will arrive on Friday 10:30 am (assuming no delays), I'd like to see as many of the touristic points as possible that afternoon. Tour bus a good idea? Any suggestions?
Should I dedicate Saturday to the zoo or can I pull it off on Sunday? How many hours do I need?
Beach recommendation? Saturday (assuming it's a nice day) would be great to spend lazying around the beach.
What is the weather like in the last week of March?
I work (remotely) both Sunday evening and Monday until 3 pm, so only Sunday day & late Monday are available for any more exploring although I will likely use that time for a nice walk around, nice dinner, or a place with outdoor sitting for a couple cocktails.
How do I get to LA? Found this train schedule on google:
San Diego Santa Fe Depot San Diego, CA
Pacific Surfliner 567 towards Los Angeles Union Station 8:24 AM - 11:16 AM
Los Angeles Union Station Los Angeles, CA
Is this the best option? Any suggestions? Thank you!
