My Day on Sesame Street - Hasta la vista San Diego!

The third stop on my recent family trip to California, USA was San Diego. Rich in history, this city has a beautiful harbour and a huge naval presence.

San Diego was such a lovely city to visit with so much to do. There was just one disappointment at Legoland for Julia: "I thought the toilets would be made of Lego!"

Just one more California stop to go - can you guess where?

  1. Hopefully Disneyland - I can't find that you've posted about going there and I assume you did! Would love to hear about it because I'm looking into a trip there for next year. Any recommendations for where to stay, who to fly with, etc most welcome. We've been before, but not with kids, so it's a whole new ball game!

  2. Absolutely right Kirralee - it just wouldn't be right to miss Disneyland!
    I think it would be very different without kids, it's much easier to appreciate and experience through a child's eyes :)
    Hopefully I can get some good piccies together for the next blog...
