    • 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!

      My husband and I will be staying at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach for one night and have a 5pm flight from LAX on a Wednesday. What time should we book the taxi for in order to allow for traffic etc to ensure that we arrive at the airport in good time. We're thinking of booking Rapid Shuttle, but would it be easier just to order a taxi from the hotel. Thanks in advance.

      Hi everyone
      We are staying for two or three days on the Queen Mary as a speciel treat. We will have a rental car but would like to know can you get into Hollywood area and Warner Brothers studio from there by public transport...easily that is not lots of changes. Dont realy want to take the car into LA itself. Would also like to visit Disney World but think that may be a car day.
      Is it a nice area to stay anyway, we will have just driven along the highway from sanfram.

    • Have I Made a Mistake?

      by mgwidow Online Now Apr 18, 2012 at 3:50 AM

      I have booked to come to the USA for the first time, visiting San Fransisco, Las Vegas and Long Beach. We are staying in the Westin towards the end of September.

      I booked Long Beach, because I am not really interested in Hollywood and I wanted a chilled out end to our trip. (Nicebeach, restaurants and maybe a couple of excursions)

      Reading a little more about Long Beach now, I worry I have boooked to come to somewhere that is quite unsafe and I will have to constantly worry about our safety.

      Although it may be expensive to do so, should I change and book Redondo instead?

      Need Hotel Stay Near Catalina Ferry Port

      by atufft Online Now Mar 29, 2012 at 10:19 PM

      I've been studying the possibility of staying at the Queen Mary, but since we have our dog with us, the extra75- fee seems a bit much for place that seems like a run-down tourist trap. But, then the pet friendly Motel 6 seems to offer nothing in terms of experience, even for one night stay.

      All we want is a decent one night experience in the hours before getting on the ferry to Catalina Island. So, it seems that we could do better to stay somewhere else within the LA basin, within reasonable distance of the Catalina Port. We will drive from Northern California, so getting to the last ferry departing on Sunday--5:45PM--also seems difficult.

      So, does anyone have a unique, and not overly expensive LA hotel recommendation, a place where we can get out on the street to walk the dog without getting run over, and get non-corporate style food to eat? I know, this seems like I'm asking too much from LA, or am I?

      Best Westerns in Long Beach

      by happytravellers Online Now Jul 18, 2007 at 9:16 AM

      Hi there. We plan to use some points for a one-night stay at one of the Best Westerns in Long Beach this October. Can anyone recommend which Best Western is the best (property, location etc.) -
      - Best Western at the Convention Centre
      - Best Western of Long Beach
      - Best Western Golden Sails

      Also, some friends want to book a room (up to110 roughly) in a good location at the same time (October) - not necessarily at a Best Western if they can find something better. Any advice on a great hotel in that price range would be great.

      3801 Highland Ave.
      Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

      5.) It’s on a Friday so you don’t have to work the next day.
      6.) It’s California. (That’s more for me) LOL. You are used to being there.
      7.) Reserved seating at the bar and drink Specials.
      8.) I hear the Southern California VT members know how to Party.
      9.) I will be there (What more do you need) ha ha.
