We stayed at the Grande Colonial, right in the heart of the village. We had no car on this trip. One in our party has walking issues, so everything we did was geared toward that. The hotel currently only has room service breakfast due to COVID so we ate breakfast at Richard Walkers right across the street. Very friendly, short wait, and good typical breakfast food. We had dinner at The Spot. Great salads and burgers, and good vibes. Gerard Street has an Indy book store, Warwick’s, a hardware store to putter around in, and lots of other shops. Lots of coffee shop choices too, with plenty of outdoor seating. Less than a mile up Gerard is a farmers market, only open on Sunday’s. Going toward the water, Seal Beach is 5 minutes away and follows along the coast to La Jolla Cove and more seals and sea lions.
