    Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcalá, in San Diego, California, was the first Franciscan mission in the Las Californias Province of the Viceroyalty of New Spain. It was founded in 1769 by Spanish friar Junípero Serra in an area long inhabited by the Kumeyaay Indians. The mission and the surrounding area were named for the Catholic Saint Didacus, a Spaniard more commonly known as San Diego. The mission was the site of the first Christian burial in Alta California. San Diego is also generally regarded as the site of the region's first public execution, in 1778. Father Luís Jayme, "California's First Christian Martyr," lies entombed beneath the chancel floor. The current church is the fourth to stand on this location.[15] The Mission is a National Historic Landmark.[14]

    If you're sure about San Diego, La Jolla would be the best place to go. It's clean and beautiful, plus the beach is right there! Otherwise, i would actually recommend the OC, like Newport Beach, HUntington, Laguna, those are the best places. It's cleaner but the city is a little bit smaller than San Diego, plus it's safer too. It's about half an hour away from LA but that's including all the traffic, so it's really close. Another very safe and beautiful city that's even closer to LA is Anaheim. Even downtown is safe. The only bad part is that all of these places are pretty expensive, but worth every penny!
