Subject: San Diego Grand Fondo & Places To Stay
Hey California peeps,
I'm coming to San Diego to experience some of your glorious sunshine during a time when it will be rainy in Vancouver. Who am I kidding, it's always rainy in Vancouver.
Anyway, I will be in San Diego from March 5th - 14th and will be doing the Grand Fondo on the 7th.
What are the best places to say? I haven't really been to San Diego before, just once when I was young. I've booked a flight, but no place to stay yet. I've been looking at vrbo.com because we've booked through that site before and the places have always been great, but we're flexible. We just want a washer/dryer (or at least one near by) to wash all of our cycling clothes and a kitchen and probably somewhere to buy groceries.
We're pretty flexible with location too. Anywhere nice would be good. Originally we were looking into staying on Mission Beach, but then someone told me it is kind of scuzzy. Is it? The pictures make it look nice. I thought staying near the beach would be nicer, but I like cities too, so don't mind staying downtown/little Italy if there are really cool areas near there. Even further North is good too if it is really nice there, or there is lots of nice riding.
We won't have a car and will probably spend most/every day riding. So BT, what say you, where the best place/area to stay?
