1st Trip Mother and Son
My Son and I.
In September 2016, I took my son to the beach for the first time! He was 4 years at the time. Not thinking of the three hour time difference, it was a little rough. Not to mention his first time on the plane which had a connection and took almost 6 hours to get there! (I mean poor guy was falling asleep what usually is 2100 back at home to only being 1800 there in California. ) But, the look on his face when he touched sand for the first time was so WORTH IT!! It was so beautiful! The sandy hills, the water, literally EVERYTHING!! Makes me want to cry just thinking about it!! FYI, traveling with a little human I would defiantly recommend getting a Travel Booster Seat and a Tablet!
We stayed at the La Avenida Inn it's a 2-Star Hotel but, the reviews and price had me at Yes! When we first arrived they were nothing but, friendly till the last day. We actually went home a day early and they refunded our last night's stay. They had a pool we played in, walking distance to EVERYTHING !! We ended up just taking a taxi to and from the SAN Airport. We had a Food Market, Starbucks ( winning! ) The restaurants we enjoyed were Cafe 1134, Village Pizzeria, and got ice cream at MooTime Creamery they even had Elvis in front of the Creamery doing his signature pose. R.I.P. Elvis Presley!
All in all, it was an awesome time!! I can't wait to go back! Next time I would love to experience and stay at the Hotel Del Coronado, Curio Collection by Hilton. It's HUGE and very beautiful!
