      Safety near Exposition Park

      Los Angeles Jun 24, 2015 at 12:57 AM

      I'm a white guy who will be visiting friends who live near the intersection of Exposition and Normandie for a few weeks. How worried about safety should I be? Would it be safe to walk 5-6 blocks to get to a Metro station, or to wait for a bus in that area?

    • Californica Science Center - Endeavour

      Los Angeles Jun 13, 2015 at 8:46 AM

      Dear all!

      We are planning to visit the California Science Center and also want to see the Endeavour. On the homepage it says:

      "A $2 timed reservation is required on weekends, holidays, and the high attendance periods below. Please call (213) 744-2019 for group reservations.

      Weekdays through June 9th from 10:00am to 12:45pm"

      It seems that the last sentence specifies a "high attendance period". However, it only says that it includes weekdays *through* June 9th, but does not specify when this period starts (so theoretically it could start on June 10th the year before). We are planning to come on August 17th (Monday).

      Do we need a reservation?

      Thank you!

      Just some tips & pointers would be great.

      Thanks in advance. Hayley

      Theme parks- Disneyland and Legoland

      Los Angeles Jun 15, 2015 at 5:04 PM

      How long would you recommend for a family with 3 kids to spend at these two parks? I understand that Legoland has a water park as well as Disneyland has an adventure activity park- are these both worthwhile? Any coupon deals worth checking out to minimise expenses? Our 2 girls will have to go as adults- yikes!

    • Traveling from South Lake Tahoe to yYosemite and staying in Groveland

      Yosemite National Park Jun 14, 2015 at 10:33 AM

      My husband and I are traveling from South Lake Tahoe to Yosemite and staying in Groveland for 2 nights in August . My plan was to take 395 and stop in Bodie on the way and I also want to stop at Whoa Nellie Deli in Lee Vining to see the view of Mono Lake. I'm figuring about 4 1/2 hours and then another 1/2 hour to the East entrance . My first thought was to drive to Groveland and head to the valley floor early the next morning but I now realize that we are traveling through Yosemite to get to Groveland ! So I'm wondering if we should head straight to the valley floor ( I want to do the glacier point tour) and then maybe have dinner there ...maybe a twilight stroll from Ahwahnee... And then head to Groveland for the night and back to the valley the next morning ( My daughter says we should do the Vernal Falls hike) Or are there other areas we should explore if we drive through to Groveland and do the valley floor the next day? We have never been to Yosemite ! I am making these plans solely on what I have read online.. I appreciate any advice :)

      Hi everyone,
      My wife's 40th birthday is coming up and I'd like to throw her a surprise party with about 15 people in the Pasadena/Altadena area. She loves nature, outdoors in general. Anybody knows of a gem location in a decent price range? (Huntington, ec... are too expensive for me)
      Thx for any insight !!

      Where is the best place to park for the 2014 rose parade? Easy in and out is preferred over proximity. Our seats are at the corner of Colorado and Orange Grove.

      Rose Parade 2008 - Have where to stay??

      by EPTraveler Online Now Feb 1, 2007 at 12:55 PM

      I just reserved seats for the parade that are very close to the corner of Orange Grove and Colorado. My next challenge is to figure out where to stay, and how to get through the New Years Day madness to the parade. We are trying to avoid renting a car at this point. A couple questions for anyone who can help:

      1. Are there any mid-priced hotels located within walking distance of that intersection?

      2. If not, are there hotels that offer transportation to the Parade either free of charge to their guests, or for a minimal fee?

      If there is smarter way to do this that anyone can recommend,I am totally open to suggestions at this point.

      Thank you.

    • Rose Parade--where to sit

      by rferr Online Now Dec 28, 2006 at 11:11 AM

      I'm thinking of trying to see the Rose Parade by arriving on 1/1 in the early AM and sitting near the end of the parade route. Will there be decent viewing opportunities or am I nuts and just need to bite the bullet and arrive a day ahead?

    • Pasadena, CA: Need Suggestions for a surprise Birthday dinner

      by SecretBirthday Online Now Nov 14, 2006 at 1:25 PM

      My girlfriend's 30th birthday is coming up, and me and her friends want to throw a surprise birthday party at a nice restaurant.

      There's going to be about 20 people and we want it to be around20-30 per person, and the restaurant should be pretty classy.

      We were thinking of Houston's restaurant, but they wouldn't take reservations for more than 5 people.

      Any suggestions?

      Rose Parade 2008

      by EPTraveler Online Now Nov 7, 2006 at 7:58 AM

      We would like to attend next year's Parade (New Years Day, 2008). I am looking for tips on how to have the best experience with the least amount of stress. Is it too late to plan for 2008? I appreciate anyone who can help with:

      Where to stay;
      Who to go to for reserved bleacher seats for the parade;
      How to get from hotel to parade;
      Information on how to tour the floats before and after the parade. Possibly watch them being made.

      We are not looking for a bargin basement experience, but always appreciate a good deal.

      Thanks you!

      Restaurant recommendations in Pasadena area?

      by karenincalifornia Online Now Jun 23, 2006 at 10:25 PM

      I lived in Pasadena until 1997 and will be returning with my family for a short visit in a couple of weeks after being away for 9 years. I'm no longer familiar with the restaurant scene. We want to eat dinner a couple of nights in Pasadena (or South Pas). What is your favorite restaurant in either city?
