    • Vacation home in Tahoe City?

      Tahoe City Nov 24, 2015 at 8:35 AM


      I'm considering buying a vacation home in Tahoe City having visited several times over the past few years.

      My concern is the price of property there is high and I'm worried if I wanted to sell in 5-10 years time would I at least get my money back.

      If you live there yourself or have any information on this it would be greatly appreciated!

      Using Public Transport

      San Francisco Nov 8, 2015 at 5:08 AM

      Hi everyone, Going to San Francisco for a week in February. I'm a bit confused with public transport passes and want to know Ii there a public transport pass that can be used on buses, the bart, ferries, trams and cable cars?

      Also if you book a ticket to Alcatraz in advance is it for a specific day and time or does it just mean you have a ticket then get in the queue to get on a ferry.

      Many thanks in advance,


    • Overnight between Mendocino and San Francisco?

      Point Arena Nov 8, 2015 at 7:21 AM

      My husband and I are spending March traveling along coastal California from San Diego to the north coast. Skipping ahead to the last leg of the trip - we'll be coming from Sacramento and Sonoma, up as far as Ferndale, then heading south to stay in Mendocino for two nights. Ultimately, we need to end up in San Francisco to return the car and fly home. My question is this: I'm not sure how much time to allot for the drive between Mendocino and San Francisco. I realize it's not a huge distance in miles, but I would like to feel that we are leaving ourselves enough time to see the sights along this stretch of the road (and not end up driving in the dark to SF). We're not avid hikers (especially if there might be scary 'critters' in the woods!), but do love shorter 2-3 mile walks in good weather (which I know isn't guaranteed at this time of year). We're also big lovers of wine, and my husband loves beer. We have been in San Francisco twice before (one week each time), and had planned to spend 5 days there this time (with no particular agenda yet). Alternatively - question part 2 - is it worth taking one of those 'SF' days to overnight somewhere between Mendocino and SF? If so, where? Thank you so much for your help!

      Bicycle Oregon Coast to Arcata California

      by Trailhead Online Now Aug 14, 2011 at 8:47 AM

      I will be bicycling the Oregon coast through the Redwood forest in early Sept. and I have searched VT for guides on this activity but the results seem to be focus on driving or visiting.

      If anyone else will be touring the coast via bicycle, let me know.

      I have found plenty of information via the web but would welcome feedback on the following:

      1) General comments and recommendation for the tour (I will be camping).

      2) Any "must dos" or "must stops"?

      3) Best places to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner

      4) Best camp sites

      5) Best places for a beer

      6) Any information on the airport in Arcata, CA, and getting there...flying with a bike at that airport...closest campground or hotels in the area...

      7) What and where to avoid

      8) Any issues on biking to the airport.

      Thanks for the help.

      one rockin' place and also one cheap decent place to spend the night...

      by hotcoaldance Online Now Aug 18, 2008 at 11:31 PM

      Hello friends!
      I'll consider suggestions about campgrounds as well as cheap motels.
      I'll be in Arcata on the 12th of September and I would love to go check out the 'music scene' in your town.
      Regarding the music: what are the best spots for non mainstream bands? any link to your local paper with the listings of gigs?
      Regarding where to spend the night:I imagine we'll be going to sleep really late, so a humble place is just fine for us. ...but safe, and clean would be great!
      Any tip of any nature for a 24-hrs-in-Arcata situation would be appreciated. even just where to go take a good walk and enjoy your community...or nature

      ...yes, we're 2 musician on a tight budget ;)

      thank you so much!

      Moving to Arcata or Eureka

      by mysticada Online Now Nov 10, 2002 at 4:42 AM

      I am planning a move to either Eureka or Arcata could someone give me an idea of jobs and housing rentals available and I also have a 12 yr old son. Are there lots of kids there? It looks beautiful and very inline with my philosophy of life.
