    • Catalina Islands in December

      Avalon Sep 11, 2015 at 11:06 AM

      My wife and I are going to be in LA in December. We would like to visit Avalon, Catalina Islands for a couple of days. We like to hike and I would think the temperatures in December would be nice enough. How would the early nightlife scene be at that time of year and would most of the restaurants and bars be open? Any chance of hearing live music.

      Southern Ca Getaway idea, please.

      Los Angeles Oct 2, 2015 at 1:13 AM

      My birthday's next week and I'd like to take a 2-3 day getaway (mid week). I live in paradise already, San Diego - but would like to perhaps go find a nice B&B and go to Universal Studios, maybe another studio or park or cool activity for an adult traveling solo. Are there any awesome places or stops you'd recommend for a getaway alone? Like to keep it under $500 for all.

    • 4 nights at US Grant and only rent a car for the last 2 days?

      San Diego Sep 18, 2015 at 3:59 AM

      Hi All,

      I just wanted to run past through you my idea for my trip to San Diego next month. I'll spending 4 nights at the US Grant, therefore I was thinking of not renting a car for the first two days, and explore anything I can explore on foot. This is primarily to save the ridiculously expensive parking fee for two nights!

      I would then rent a car for the last two days so that I can explore a bit more of what's further afield.

      Does it sound sensible?

      Event in Napa, 10-17 & 10-18?

      Napa Sep 11, 2015 at 9:41 AM

      I thought I would try the forum to see if maybe someone could figure this out, because I've not been able to find it.
      My wife has a business meeting in Santa Rosa on the week of 10-12. We were going to drive up there and, once her meeting is finished on Friday, spend at least another night in the area. However, that weekend, the hotels get ridiculous, and I'm trying to figure out what's going on there.
      It seems to get worse as you move toward Napa, so I'm thinking that Napa is where the event is. Hotels in Fairfield are extremely high, while those in Concord are normal, and I may end up staying in Concord before flying out on another trip.
      Can anyone find this major event, just to satisfy my own curiosity?

      Porters in the airport (LAX)?

      Los Angeles Sep 27, 2015 at 9:46 PM

      My daughter will arrive in Los Angeles International Airport with two small children, a four-year-old and a not-yet-two-year-old. She'll have to get two big car seats from the baggage claim plus her luggage and will have to get everything and everybody out to the public arrival area, where our friends will meet them. Are there any porters in the baggage claim hall? I've read about Skycaps. Are they easily recognizable? I've read they expect to be tipped. How much would be appropriate? And I suppose they also expect to be paid. Can anyone tell me how much this is?
      Thank you for any information.

      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!

      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.
