My husband and I ( 60 yr young couple) are planning a first time visit to San Diego for the first week of September 2014
We are unfamiliar with the area and are in need of some advise as to what area and hotels are good.
We like to be on or within walking distance of a nice sandy calm beach We also like to have an outdoor pool at the hotel
We like to be near dining and shopping locations .
Also should we plan to rent a car on not?
We would probably like to go to the SD Zoo and a few other attractions as you may recommend. Thank you in advance for your help..
