Hi! We're planning a family trip (8 of us total) and I'd like to get some feedback on when we should plan on seeing some of the items on our list. There are two kids (10 & 16), several of us in our mid-30s, and our parents +/- 60. The SO and I visited San Diego last December for a few days, but otherwise, most of us are new to the area. We're flying into LAX and driving down, and expect to rent two vehicles.
We want to see all the usual attractions - USS Midway, the Zoo, Legoland, etc., but also want to see sites like Coronado, La Jolla, and Torrey Pines. We may rent a sailboat for a day, and a few of us might check out Tijuana.
We were thinking of seeing the zoo on Christmas day (since we'll all be together and this trip is our gift to each other) :) - maybe Legoland Christmas Eve? Any advice on ways to avoid the biggest crowds at any of these destinations?
Thanks in advance!
