As the title states I will be flying into LAX on April 20th. We will be staying in LA for two days (20th and 21st) then driving to San Diego for two (22nd and 23rd). Then we are driving to Yuma AZ for a few hours and then head back to Huntington Beach for a night (24th). Then will will drive back to LA and fly out the next morning(25th and 26th).
What are some things to do along the way? We are not pressed for time and have no where to be except San Diego (family) even there it's just an Aunt that lives there and we are not staying with her. Our schedule is wide open.
Has to be family oriented as it will be my wife, two young kids (2 and 3) and myself.
We want to do the touristy area in Hollywood, see the sign, walk of fame, etc. my wife has a friend in Glendale that we will also visit for a couple of hours.
We don't want to stray to far from the coast because of drive times. What are some good places to eat? Good hotels? Attractions, etc?
Thanks in advance. This be our first visit to California but are well traveled.
The Breakfast Bar in Long Beach on Atlantic Ave for a great breakfast
SOL Cocina in Newport Beach for a great lunch with great scenery
Guelaguetza in Koreatown (near Hollywood) for the best Mexican food
