My roomie and I need sun BADLY! We are from Seattle... I have searching the Internet for a couple weeks now looking for hotels (places to rest and relax- or outposts to go to attractions and the beach/Mexico). What areas/places should I concentrate on? What is the best place to be located? We are also needing food recs for must try places- types of food to try- and can't miss items. I'm thinking places that are hole in the wall, or cheap, or legendary, or impressive. All price points with an emphasis on the lower end- we did just get out of university :) There can be a few splurge meals though... I am not really familiar with the area at all. The last time I was in San Diego I was 14 and with my mom. My only memories are eating chocolate candies in the shape of a whale at a Sea World brunch* I need insider help! Thanks!
