Lawrence Welk Resort Villas and San Diego

Overview

Quote:
The Lawrence Welk Resort is right in the middle of everything. I drove to Carlsbad and spent a day on the beach, to Palm Springs for a day of shopping and dining, and to Temecula for the hot-air balloon rides and the wine country.

Quick Tips:

There is a great outlet mall on the way to Palm Springs. It has a Coach outlet and many other fun shops.

Best Way To Get Around:

Renting a car is probably the best way to get around. If you stay right in San Diego, you can get by with public transportation, but if you go to the outskirts at all, you will need a car. There are several car rental locations at the airport, like in most cities.
