      Help! I'm new here in San Diego

      San Diego May 11, 2015 at 8:43 PM

      I've just started a job right in the heart of San Diego - 4th and B street (BOA bldg) and hope some clever locals can give me a few ideas on healthy (not-too-pricey) lunch spots for a veggie. Also, cool hiding spots on the tops of buildings or in tucked away plazas to eat a lunch and escape. When I lived in San Francisco and worked downtown I had a whole slew of hiding spots, mostly public open spaces that few people knew about. Anything like that here? Rooftop lounges with a view, perhaps? Thanks!!!

    • Need photography location advice

      Sequoia National Park May 6, 2015 at 11:52 PM

      Hi all. I'll be visiting the park next weekend, 5/15 - 5/17. I'll arrive at night (5/15). I'd like to shoot star trails with a noticeable foreground. I'll then wait for the sunrise of 5/16. During the day time, I'll visit the points of interests. I'd also like to take photos of sunset. On 5/17, I'll visit more points of interests and then head back to LA. I'd be appreciated if you could advise on the locations for 1. star trails; 2. sunrise; and 3. sunset. In addition, please let me know if you have any photography tips in the park. For instance, what time at which location would be possible to create a dramatic shot. Thanks in advance!

      I plan to visit LA for a week after my SF trip. The final day of my SF trip, I plan to go to Apple's company store located in Cupertino. While going there shall I hire a car to stop for some (??) important places while travelling to Cupertino?

      I am also curious about what you think about continuing to LA by car (with my luggages) from Cupertino, instead of getting back to my hotel in downtown SF to travel to SFO next day for flying to LAX?

    • Returning back to overseas from LAX or SFO, does it worth gaining time or gaining money?

      Los Angeles May 4, 2015 at 6:34 AM

      I live in east Europe and I will visit LA for theme parks, hollywood and beachs, after staying in SF for 2 weeks. From SFO to LAX I will go by plane.

      While returning, I either directly fly back from LA to europe, or first fly to SFO and fly from there to europe.

      I spend $250 less, flying back from SFO.
      I earn 4-5 hours + 1 less flight (and it's hassles), flying back from LA.

      Both planes take of at 6 PM.
      If I choose SFO path, I have to get to airport before 1PM to get on the plane at 2PM.
      If I choose direct flight from SFO, I have to get to airport 4PM at latest.

      I have never been to SF or LA, so I appreciate every recommendation.
      Thank you soo much.

      A beautiful place to picnic in Napa Valley?

      by mariabeeken Online Now Feb 1, 2015 at 12:34 AM

      I am trying to put together a not too expensive stay in Napa Valley for my husband and I.

      I looked at this tour: winecountrylimos.com/napa-gr... - $99 for 6 hours and 4-5 wineries. Sounds ok. But the tasting fees are not incl. So I guess, i'll have to double the price then?

      I think then maybe we will just go to one ore two wineries by our selves (we have a rentalcar). I just haven't figured out which ones we should go to yet. Maybe take the signature tour and tasting at Robert Mondavi Winery.

      Anyway, the hole idea about going to Napa, was that I kinda had this picture in my head, of me and my husband having a romantic picnic on a beautiful spot overlooking lush vineyards.

      Does anyone have a suggestion for such a spot?

      First time to Napa

      by afrdrx Online Now Apr 28, 2011 at 1:40 PM

      Hello,

      Similar to Lemonpie's post last month, I'm looking for tips on where to stay in Napa. My boyfriend and I are in our late 20's and are making our first trip out to the area. We prefer to stay in an active area with things to do that are within walking/biking distance, but also plan to use a rental car to get to worthwhile destinations that we cannot walk to. We're looking for a vacation rental with outdoor space and a kitchen; we love to cook and I'm really looking forward to checking out some of the farmers markets and gourmet shops I've read about. We also like to wine-and-dine out, and hope to stay someplace where we won't have to rely on a car to do so. After reading books and checking out websites for weeks, I could really use some advice! We will be spending 4 days in Napa and 3 in Sonoma.

      Thanks for any input!

      Young couple needs advice in Napa/Sonoma for 5 days in August

      by silverspark7 Online Now Jan 1, 2011 at 10:18 AM

      I am in the midst of planning a 2 week vacation in CA for my boyfriend and I in August. Our first stop is for five days in San Fran (See post—VT Forum temporarily unavailable and then we head to the Napa/Sonoma region for another five days/four nights. We have booked four nights at Churchill Manor but I am considering shorting that to two so that we can have two days in Sonoma—is this a good idea? Is Sonoma worth a stop over, or should we remain based in Napa and simply drive over for a day's visit in Sonoma?

      We plan to visit Robert Mondavi winery and possibly La Crema—other suggestions are welcome. We would also like to do the Napa Valley Wine Train. Other than that, we have no official plans in the area and would love some advice. Maybe a spa, some shopping, and just general relaxation. The two of us are also foodies and hope to eat at some great restaurants in the area. I know that there are some "celebrity chef" restaurants in the area and think that might be cool to try one night. We also love to take pictures, so if you recommend any picturesque locations, we would love that. We wouldn't mind going on a light hike in the area if there are good places to do so. Finally, for the drive to and from Napa/Sonoma and San Fran, we would like to know of any places worth a stop.

      Thank you in advance to those who post suggestions—I've supported California wine country in the comfort of my South Louisiana home for some time now and am excited for my first trip to the area!

      I have spent a whole day on the computer going through wineries in Napa and Sonoma and they all have Tours and Wine Tasting. Given 4 days, it's impossible to tour all of them. I'll appreciate some recommendations on the wineries that are a 'must see' for scenery, 'must try' for their wine and food pairings and 'must tour' for their beauty. Are the tours necessary? Are we able to visit the wineries without booking a tour but still be able to enjoy it. Of course, there are some wineries that are well worth paying for a tour. Also, my last question... my boyfriend is not a huge fan of wine...do the wineries mind if I pay for a tasting for myself but I shared the wine with him or are they really strict?

      Can someone please give me some advice about our up coming trip to Napa. We will be traveling from SFO to the Napa region this May. I was told by my friend that Sonoma is better end less crowded?? Can some recommend a place to locate ourselves and a few spots/wineries not to miss.

      thank you for your help.
