I will be staying in San Diego area from October 30th for 1 week with my husband and parents. We are looking for advice about the best area to stay at this time of year to meet our needs. We are from Scotland so our warmest summers are only about 65c and believe it or not we sunbathe in this weather! :) I looked up info on the weather which says San Diego averages between 65-70c at this time. Can you advise if it is worthwhile staying at the beach at this time of year? Would everywhere still be open or are places open seasonally?
We would like to stay in an area where we can walk to restaurants/bars in the evening but are unsure where the best and safest areas would be. I have looked at the area guide, but would appreciate some additional info. We will have a car, so we will still be able to get around to visit all the tourist spots, so we are flexible with where we stay. It doesnt matter if we have to take the car to the beach if it means a better location for going out at night. We dont want to stay in an area which is too expensive, having looked at some of the restaurants, we like the look (and prices) of Hodad's so its this type of place/budget we are looking at.
I would really appreciate some San Diego expertise so we can narrow down our accommodation search.
Thanks in advance,
