      Strollers on Newport Avenue?

      Ocean Beach Jul 5, 2015 at 4:00 PM

      Please forgive me if this post shows up multiple times. I've tried asking twice before, but have yet to see my question posted. I'm visiting San Diego for a day in a couple of weeks, mid-July, and would like to spend my day on Newport Avenue. I'm traveling with an infant and while I would normally just carry her in a sling, my hotel is 26 miles from Ocean Beach, so I will have to take a cab. Due to that I will have a car seat and I can't see a better way to carry that around than to use th stroller. That said, I'd like to know if the shops on Newport Avenue are large enough to maneuver around in with a stroller. Also, how about the street itself? Too crowded for a stroller? Would it stick out like a sore thumb? Thanks in advance, and again, I do apologize if my question appears more than once.

      Is this commutable by public transportation or should I stay closer?

      San Francisco Jul 12, 2015 at 1:35 PM

      Hi,
      I'm attending several conferences next month and my budget doesn't allow for the swanky downtown hotels. The conference is near Transamerica Pyramid, but I've booked a room in Emeryville neat the San Francisco Bay Bridge; is this commutable at all hours by public transportation? If not should I try to stay closer? Where do you recommend on a tight budget? I'd like to be able to see some of the sights too. :-). Thanks!

      Nobody posts in this forum! Well, here are a few questions :)

      by greencargirl Online Now Feb 26, 2012 at 2:52 PM

      Hi! I wonder if anyone will even see this, but we have a few questions about visiting Oakland.

      What's the best way to get from Lake Merritt to the Rockridge restaurant area? I'll be travelling with a couple of kids (a tween and a teen), and we're staying at a b&b type place right near the park on the Lake. Any public transportation tips will be great, such as how to get to Piedmont dining area, Berkely dining area (thinking of splurging there on Chez Pannisse, but not sure yet), UCB, Palo Alto, etc.

      Thanks everyone (anyone?)!
