Got a call last week from Ruth McKinnie Braun of the suchasmartmom.com website. Ruth is putting together a feature on staycations for spring break and wondered about some good drives and spots to take kids.
Of course, I talked Ruth’s head off on places to go, and I won’t try to steal her thunder too much, but here are a couple of drives to consider.
1. Highway 94. Includes stops to see old cars at Simpson’s Garden Town Nursery in Jamul (a great vintage auto and travel trailer collection) and the Pacific Southwest Railroad Museum in Campo (train rides on the weekend).
2. Highway 101: Beaches, nature centers and places to eat.
Of course, there are 20 drives in Weekend Driver San Diego that will give you more than enough to explore over any vacation in Southern California, whether it’s home or a destination.
