Doing a quick weekend in SD/DL August 24-28th. A few questions: good place to eat dinner in SD? We are staying at the Westin San Diego downtown any tips on beating traffic north from SD to DL? We are leaving by 3pm on a Friday. Sunday, hoping to hit a beach for a bit near SD before our 5:30pm flight. Any recs on a good kid-friendly one with bathrooms? We won't have a hotel at that point, so need to be able to change clothes and clean up. Don't need big waves, looking for clean, fun, sand etc. I have a full day workshop on Thursday and looking for dinner that night in SD. Taking hubby and my 4yo. So, first, looking for a rec on a good (kid-friendly) spot for dinner in San Diego- should we do the Gaslamp? (that's the only spot I've done before, on business) DH will take DS to do something (maybe legoland) while I work on thursday. Friday, we will head to tackle the zoo at opening. We hope to leave the zoo by 3pm at the latest to start the drive north to DL. We will have a rental car. Hoping to beat a little traffic by leaving that early, but I've heard it can be bad (hopefully not as bad going north?). Any recs for time to leave or tips for beating traffic or good points of interest to stop along the way to check out the coast? We have 7:30 ADRs for Goofy's that night at Disneyland Hotel where we are staying on points for 2 nights. Saturday, hitting Disneyland bright and early for MM and spending the whole day there. Sunday, drive back to SD and hopefully hit a beach for a bit. Flight is at 5:30pm out of SD. Thanks!
