Heading down to take my little guy to Legoland this week. Are there any meet-ups or must see uke stuff/stores in the area?

Thanks,

Carlsbad is a great beach town with great surfing!! Miss it dearly...

Buffalo Bros is a great shop, but if I'm correct the ukulele section is not a robust as their guitars...But still a great experience...

Also, farther down is The Blue Guitar...They have some nice ukes, but a very small shop...But they do great repair work on guitars..

Gary, you could build a Legolele while you're at LegoLand.
