      We are heading to the NCAA tourney in Anaheim this week, staying at the Doubletree in Anaheim /Orange Co. Is a car a necessity? I see there is a super shuttle from the airport. Would we be stranded without a car, or would that just be a hassle? Just wondering if we are in walking distance to restaurants, etc.

      Hostels to stay in near Union Station LA

      Los Angeles Apr 5, 2014 at 7:26 AM

      Hello all!

      I am flying into LAX next Sunday at 9pm and I am looking for a place to stay until I get my AMTRAX train from Union Station up to San Francisco on Tuesday morning.

      I am planning to go straight from the airport to a hostel / hotel near Union station where I can sleep and recover from Jet lag. I want to stay by Union Station the following Monday day and night so I can be near by to collect my train on the tuesday morning.

      Does anybody recommend the best / cheapest way to get from LAX to Union Station on a Sunday night?

      Does anybody have any recommendations for places to stay near Union Station?

      I am thinking a cheap and friendly youth hostel?

      Also, what type of area is Union Station in?
      Are there any interesting places in walking distance?
      Coffee shops or parks where I can just chill for the afternoon?

      I really look forward to hearing from you!
      Many thanks,

      Milly, London

      Hi,
      I'll be hiking alone in the Joshua Tree National Park in December.
      Are there any rattlesnakes around this time of year? Is it a real danger for a solo hiker? Where is the nearest facility with anti-venom available?
      Thanks!

    • Joshua Tree National Park Drive-By

      by tropicdiver Online Now Feb 4, 2007 at 9:45 AM

      On my way from San Diego to Yuma to meet my new grandson, I plan on driving up to Joshua Tree National Park via the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

      I'm really not going to have much time to do any hiking (perhaps some short hikes, hopefully), as my time will be rather limited. Is it best to enter the park from the North and then drive south thru it or should I enter from the south and just head northwest to get a taste of the park?

      I've looked at numerous tips this morning about Joshua Tree National Park to get a general overview of the park and it sounds like the west side of the park will be the best area for me to explore in the short time I am there.

      Any suggestions of "must see" areas?

      Thanks.
