Legoland is amazing. I never imagined that they would do so much with legos. They have always been a favorite toy with my boys who are now in their thirties and now I have one grandson who is enjoying them. So cool. We had a blast with the kids here. Hotels can be located very close to Legoland. We found it was worth the trip into Old San Diego to a great little Mexican resturant and plaza where we enjoyed a live Mexican band while we dined on the most amazing food and strolled through the shops trying on hats, shawls and jewelry.
