      Secondly, would also appreciate any advice on the best way to utilize my time and have enough fun. I like pubs, nightclubs, sightseeing, hopping, nice place to eat, etc.

      Attending TV tapings and age restrictions

      Los Angeles Mar 3, 2015 at 12:30 PM

      I've been doing some research on attending tapings of live studio audience TV tapings - and have seen that the minimum age is 10. I have a younger child (7) who would enjoy a couple of the Disney shows that are available to attend. Are the age restrictions strictly enforced? Thanks.

    • North of San Francisco

      San Francisco Mar 6, 2015 at 1:20 PM

      Hi guys! Me and my family (5 pax) are planning to spend around 17/20 days:

      Fly to Las Vegas - Grand Canyon (4 days - Arrive, Rent a car in Vegas go directly to GCanyon, spend 2 nights, back to Vegas, spend 2 nights

      From Vegas fly to ??? (I do not know where - help needed) north of San Francisco

      Spend 5 to 7 days in the area North of San Francisco (when I say north, I mean up to Vancouver)

      Coming south (car) spend 2 nights in Yosemite.

      Go to San Francisco 2 nights

      Spend 3 nights going to LA

      From LA back home

      Total around 17/19 days.

      I need help with the ??? area. Where can I go north of San Francisco? The date will be end of january, first days of february next year. So, winter time. We like both visiting cities/museums (Getty Museum close to LA) and landscapes like Muir Woods, Yosemite, etc. We will not allow time to do skiing. We might consider renting a motor home for a couple of days (3 or 4 days).

      I will gladly receive critics to my schedule and any comments will be welcome!!!!

    • 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
