    • 4 Month Holiday Though Cali' (Travel Issues)

      California Dec 8, 2014 at 2:41 PM

      Starting around end of July through to the end of November next year, i plan on travelling, pretty much, the whole length of California.

      Unfortunately i've encountered a problem with my travel plans.
      Originally, i planned on buying a van, driving through Cali and basically living out of the van.
      After extensive research, i've scrapped this plan as it seems more or less impossible to buy, register and insure a car in the U.S as a UK citizen.

      Plan B was to rent a large car/van long term and drive through Cali, once again, mainly living out of the car/van to save money on accommodation. This also comes with it's own problems as i have only just passed my driving test. A lot of rental companies require you to have held a full licence for a minimum of 1 or 2 years.
      Also rental companies charge an extra fee for drivers aged under 25. I am 23...
      AND... the amount of miles i intend on travelling may also incur more charges.
      So that's sounding like a pretty expensive option.

      Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to travel through Cali on a budget? Or a way around massive rental charges?

      Thanks for the help.

      Unique, family-friendly attractions & restaurants

      San Diego Nov 11, 2014 at 1:40 PM

      Hi,
      My family (kids are 4, 1) is going to be spending about 3 weeks in San Diego from end of Nov into Dec. We'll be staying in Mission Beach.

      Would love suggestions for:
      - great family-friendly restaurants (we love seafood, Mexican, Italian... almost anything!) - nothing to high-end fancy ;)
      - attractions (we'll hit the Zoo & Safari Park, prob a day trip up to Knott's Berry Farm or Disneyland) - are there additional "off-the beaten path" kind of attractions that locals would recommend in/around the area? i.e. We would love to take our kids to a local fruit orchard.
      - speaking of Knott's Berry Farm or Disneyland - for our kids' ages, we thought with short attention spans/naps, that they would prob have just as much fun at Knott's and with it being less expensive... it might be better suited? thoughts?
      - shopping - if I can sneak away from the family, I'd love to hit up some great vintage/thrift stores, flea markets, fabric/sewing stores.
      - farmer's markets - are any "better" than the next?
      - transportation - we're renting a car. is parking/getting around fairly easy?

      Any suggestions/ideas are welcome! Our trip is coming up fast and we can't wait for our kids to get to experience it!

      Hey Bay Citizens,

      A couple of years ago, I walked on your streets and found a concrete base plate with the words "love is the way" carved in it. I think I remember it was around Nob/Russian Hill.
      Next year, I'm planning to visit your city again - this time with my wife and show her the spot. Unfortunately, though, I forgot the exact location.
      Does anyone of you know the place? I'd love to have the exact address.

      My son and his lady are relocating to San Diego for work and need to be there in 2 weeks. They love the Hillcrest/Bankers Hill/North Park areas and could use a local agent there who really knows the available rentals there and can assist. Either paid through them or the landlord - they know this is a service of value!
      I know there are services for doing this with automotive purchases - surely there is a service for an agent who can know and show ALL the rentals, not just the ones in their firm. Any tips, suggestions?
