Planning a family trip to california this December. the kids are 3, 12, and 9 years old. Wanted some advice from families on what to "not miss". What to avoid and any suggestions on where to stay. Thinking about San Diego, The Redwood Forests. We have about 10 days. Thanks for any advice

Hi Becky! I'm a native of San Diego so Come To San Diego! Dec. - Redwoods are wet and cold, SD may have some rain in Dec. but your chances of having sun are pretty good. We have the SD Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Sea World, Legoland, Disneyland is about 2 hours drive north, SD has MILES of beaches. Forest experience? We have forests in Julian (which is about a 1 hour drive from downtown SD) AND has the best apple pie anywhere. Where to stay? Mission Valley has the highest concentration of hotels and motels and is centrally located to just about everything. It's close to 3 major freeways. Lots of museums - Midway Aircraft Carrier with lots of cool planes and areas to explore & Balboa Park which is also where the SD Zoo is located. Avoid Mexico, you need a passport, and you have to know your way around. I wouldn't take small children there if you are a "first timer". All in all, if you are looking for something for everyone...San Diego is it! :)
