    • 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.

      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.

      I've read about the RV camping site at Huntington Beach. Is it a pleasant place or do you get the feeling that you camp in the parking site of a mall?
      Can anyone recommend a camping site in the greater Los Angeles area, that is within walking distance from the sea?

      I've tried google-ing 'Huntington Hostel' and i've found a place called
      Colonial Inn Youth Hostel Hotel
      However, looking through the various hostel sites, i can't find it.
      It's site does not load either.
      Is this hostel still open?

      If not, can anyone recommend a 'cheap' place to stay in the area for two nights.
      I'll be hitting the area in early September.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Beach question

      by bedenji Online Now Mar 25, 2007 at 7:25 PM

      Hi- some girlfriends and I are hoping to visit the area in mid-June. We have our hearts set on spending some great time on the beach, and are just unsure of our best options. We are thinking of staying at the Hilton Beachfront, which would be very expensive but right on the beach (I think). Our other option would be to stay at an inland (i.e. cheaper) hotel and drive to the beach, but don't know what the public beach options are. Are there public beaches that offer chair rentals? Does anyone have any other tips?

      way to get from LAX to Huntington Beach

      by va8eha Online Now Oct 20, 2006 at 10:29 PM

      Hi, all.

      Question .. I am heading to Huntington Beach for the marathon in Feb and will be flying into the L.A. airport. I'd like to avoid renting a car if possible, since I'd only need it to get to and from the airport.

      Is there is a bus route or similar from the airport to HB? Or if not, how much can I expect to pay for a taxi ride?

      thanks! --Elizabeth

      Going to Huntington Beach next month and we are looking for a beachfront hotel/motel for under100 a night. I've seen a few advertised, but we want somewhere safe and clean (no roaches!). Can someone give a recommendation on any of these or someone I've not listed: Huntington Surf Inn Huntington Beach Inn Surf & Sands motel Beach Comfort Motel Best Western Huntington Beach (looks the nicest out of those I've listed, but also the most expensive).
