We are a family of 2 adults and 2 toddlers looking to visit the San Diego area in March. Would like to visit the Zoo, Safari Park, the beach, USS Midway, and Legoland. Since this is our first trip to the area, I'd like some suggestions on length of stay and what area to look in for lodging in San Diego and Carlsbad. We will have a rental car and will go out for some meals, but like having flexibility of preparing own meals.
- Like a place with kitchen and separate area for kids to sleep. Any hotels/resorts that fit bill? Or is rental best bet? What area to look?
- Kids still nap, so need place that's close to areas that we'll be visiting so we can easily drive back and forth.
-Beach view or on beach a plus
-Not sure on budget yet, but not Del Villas expensive
Pretty much same requirements for Carlsbad lodging. Is 2 days there enough?
Thank you very much for your suggestions! I'm sure I'll have more questions.
