Planning a visit to San Diego and found a lovely holiday rental in la mesa. Is it a good area to stay in for visiting the local area or are we better in San Diego itself?

Hi all- I am considering a rental in La Mesa for a trip between Christmas and New Years. It sounds like the higher temps inland would be a plus this time of year. We have small kids so we plan to hit the main sights in SD, but no "nightlife." Is this going to be too far? I assume traffic that week will be light.

"Too far" is a relative term.

IF you don't mind a little drive then it is not "too far".

Without traffic it is probably 30min or so to most activities.
