      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.

      Yosemite National Park Mar 17, 2014 at 5:10 AM

      Hi, planning a post retirement ( Military/LE ) trip to the West Coast this July. We have booked most of the trip but I would value your advice. Boyhood dream to visit Yosemite, although my wife and 2 teenage daughters ambivalent! We have booked an RV out of San Francisco for 4 nights to head to Yosemite, unfortunately we couldn't get any site in the Valley and have secured 2 nights at Hodgdon Meadow!! My question is ;- should we continue with the RV plan and look to drive into the valley on a daily basis so I can hike OR should we hire a car, stay at a good hotel (girls can use the pool etc) and I can drive into the valley to hike. What do you think?

      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

      Reading the guide books there are so many historic parks - probably all with a slightly different twist, so please which are the ones to see and which are the ones to avoid.

      Our plan, Tioga Pass being open in mid June is as follows:

      Depart Cedar Lodge Yosemite - drive via Lee Vining and visit Bodie State Historic Park - is this worth visitng?
      Continue to West Walker Motel Coleville -over night stop

      Stop at Chester Lake 1 night

      Stop at Lake Tahoe 2 nights and then on to outskirts of Sacramento 2 nights - the following parks seem within possible striking distance of these destinations:

    • Shall we stay in Manhattan Beach?

      by brightongirl Online Now May 27, 2007 at 10:50 AM

      First visit to California, we plan to do the touristy LA stuff (Universal, Hollywood Bowl, Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills etc.) plus Disneyland and also watch LA Galaxy.

      Would Manhattan Beach be a good base? Been looking at Santa Monica but it's so much more expensive and, being 1st time vistors, I like the idea of staying at the Marriott residence so we don't have to eat out all the time but still have the security of a hotel/local knowledge.

      Thanks in advance...

      VT Annual Party - Alternate Accommodations Idea

      by rmdw Online Now Jun 19, 2004 at 10:15 AM

      Some people have told me that they didn't receive this via e-mail so I'm going to post it here as well! Hi Everyone! Like you, I'm planning on attending the VT Annual Party next month. In my case, I'll be flying down from Vancouver, British Columbia. I'm also working on getting my girlfriend, Laura, to fly up from Mexico but that's not confirmed yet. Anyhow, I know it's going to be a whole lot of fun! As you're aware VT mgmt has kindly made arrangements for us out-of-towners to stay at one of the Hilton hotels at a rate of71/night. It's unfortunate that the hotel isn't right in Manhattan Beach but a shuttle bus is going to be able to take us back & forth between the beach and the hotel. This is fine, but when I was in Manhattan Beach last week I came up with another idea: Some people who own beach front homes or near-beach front homes there rent these out to "tourists" like ourselves. In fact, I picked up a copy of "The Beach Reporter", a local newspaper and have a number of phone numbers I plan to call. It occurs to me that if a number of people, in groups of 4, 5, or 6 for example, pooled their funds together to rent a place then their combined purchasing power could potentially rent 2/3/4 bedroom homes really close to where the activities were going on. Having accommodations in such a place would certainly be more convenient than having to rely upon a shuttle bus. And with the big volleyball tournament going on that weekend, forget about trying to find a parking space! All I'm looking for now is an indication of who might be interested in this. And if you are, how many people would be in your "group" and would these people be sharing a bed together or require separate rooms. Finally, what would be the maximum you'd be prepared to pay (for yourself or your group). Once I get that information then I'll have more to work with when I make the phone calls to the homeowners in Manhattan Beach. I'll then be able to contact you with further information about what our options are. Sincerely, Robert Werner
