We are renting early to assure a good place to stay in HB in July. I rented a place on California Street and I was wondering about the location. It will be my husband and my son will be 15 at that time and a friend. We have stayed in Laguna Beach and Newport the last couple of times and I just felt since they were getting a little older, HB might be more fun for them. They were somewhat bored at Laguna (my favorite) and although, we stayed right on the beach at Newport, I wasn't crazy about the city. I'm hoping the vibe at HB is better for them.
Anyway, I didn't want to stay where all the action is in HB, but still close enough for the boys to walk or ride bikes. What are your thoughts? I still have time to cancel if I need too.
