A July 2003 trip
to San Diego by desertgoddess
Quote: Solana Beach is a great place to stay. Its not big like San Diego and has its own "surfer" character. San Diego was less than 20 or 30 minutes (on a non-traffic day). It sits along the "Old" Highway 1 and has many other communities next door. You can travel along Highway 1 to Del Mar and LaJolla. A great place to take it easy and enjoy the scenic Pacific Ocean views and beaches.

Isn't a lot to do if you have children. I brought my 14-year-old daughter and 11-year-old niece. They played ping pong and swam. That was the extent of the activities. Because Solana Beach is so close to the beach (less than a mile), we spent a lot of time checking the different beaches out. Solana Beach is a nice surfer town. They have Cedros District which has funky, different galleries, shops, and restaurants. Nearby is Del Mar, Carlsbad and La Jolla. Solana Beach is about 20-30 minutes from San Diego.
