    • Vacation home in Tahoe City?

      Tahoe City Nov 24, 2015 at 8:35 AM


      I'm considering buying a vacation home in Tahoe City having visited several times over the past few years.

      My concern is the price of property there is high and I'm worried if I wanted to sell in 5-10 years time would I at least get my money back.

      If you live there yourself or have any information on this it would be greatly appreciated!

      Here is my question, anybody hear about this place and knows where it is please ?

      Ps: I already call the park and visitor center in Joshua Tree they don't know about it.

      Using Public Transport

      San Francisco Nov 8, 2015 at 5:08 AM

      Hi everyone, Going to San Francisco for a week in February. I'm a bit confused with public transport passes and want to know Ii there a public transport pass that can be used on buses, the bart, ferries, trams and cable cars?

      Also if you book a ticket to Alcatraz in advance is it for a specific day and time or does it just mean you have a ticket then get in the queue to get on a ferry.

      Many thanks in advance,


    • Overnight between Mendocino and San Francisco?

      Point Arena Nov 8, 2015 at 7:21 AM

      My husband and I are spending March traveling along coastal California from San Diego to the north coast. Skipping ahead to the last leg of the trip - we'll be coming from Sacramento and Sonoma, up as far as Ferndale, then heading south to stay in Mendocino for two nights. Ultimately, we need to end up in San Francisco to return the car and fly home. My question is this: I'm not sure how much time to allot for the drive between Mendocino and San Francisco. I realize it's not a huge distance in miles, but I would like to feel that we are leaving ourselves enough time to see the sights along this stretch of the road (and not end up driving in the dark to SF). We're not avid hikers (especially if there might be scary 'critters' in the woods!), but do love shorter 2-3 mile walks in good weather (which I know isn't guaranteed at this time of year). We're also big lovers of wine, and my husband loves beer. We have been in San Francisco twice before (one week each time), and had planned to spend 5 days there this time (with no particular agenda yet). Alternatively - question part 2 - is it worth taking one of those 'SF' days to overnight somewhere between Mendocino and SF? If so, where? Thank you so much for your help!

      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 !!

      2014 Rose Parade Parking

      by we135b Online Now Dec 26, 2013 at 9:28 PM

      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?
