      Where to camp.

      Big Bear Lake Aug 5, 2015 at 6:24 PM

      anybody have campgrounds they love near Big bear lake? I know Serrano, but it seems more for RVs, and Pine Knot maybe OK, but it sounds too near the town, and also the slanted sites on the hill may an issue. I have 4 kids, so hiking inland is not an option at this point. We have 1 big tent and 1 car.
      i don't have to be on the lake, but it would be nice to be near some water. maybe there is another location near Big Bear, another Lake....
      I only live an hour away, so I could travel farther if needed.

      Transportation From Oceanside to Venice Beach

      Oceanside Aug 18, 2015 at 10:45 AM

      We plan to fly into San Diego and take the Coaster to Oceanside. While we're staying there we want to go up the coast to Venice Beach and hit Dana Point on the way. What would be the best transportation heading north from Oceanside? From what I read of the Coaster it runs San Diego-Oceanside, not any more North than that. My husband hasn't lived there since the early 90's so he's not sure what has/has not changed.

    • Hotel recommendation/safety

      San Francisco Aug 7, 2015 at 10:25 AM

      Hi, I am planning a trip to San Fran at the end of Sept and was hoping I could get some current advice on hotels and safety. I am not a timid person but since I will be travelling with my 2 small children (3y & 8 months) I am a little more concerned. I was originally going to book the Hotel Arbi on Ellis St but according to Google this is still considered the TL area??? Is Taylor and Eddy Street still bad streets? If so it may be to close for comfort. The other hotel I am considering in the Wyndham Canterbury on Sutter Street but I can't find much info on the surrounding area.....any advice would be appreciated!

    • 40 hours in LA - What to do, where to stay, no car?

      Los Angeles Aug 17, 2015 at 9:35 AM

      Hi All,

      I've gone through some old topics and read a few articles online, however I'd like to ask for your advice on my specific plans.

      I'll be landing in LA at 11:30 pm on a Tuesday in October and will be taking a flight to San Diego on the following Thursday at 4 pm.

      I've never been to LA and I would like to get a taste of it during my time there. So:

      - Would the Sofitel Beverly Hills be in a good location for such a short visit?
      - What would you recommend I see and do in such short time?
      - Can I get away with walking and using Uber?
      - If I don't have a car, how would you recommend I go from and to the hotel?

      Thanks!

    • Children singing in the Capitol

      by gammasmith Online Now Apr 22, 2012 at 7:27 PM

      Dear Sir, On a recent school tour of our beautiful capitol, our guide
      commented on the lovely, perfect sound when we talk or sing on the 2nd
      floor of the rotunda below the dome. Our 4th and 5th graders had just learned
      Beethoven's 'Joyful, Joyful' and wanted to hear the reverberation. With only
      15 voices, the sound was amazing and sounded like 50. When they finished
      singing, we were advised by a staffer that singing in the Capitol is illegal. The children were. They had been taught that this was their Statehouse. Do you know why it is illegal? In other states, the governor invites children choirs to come and sing. Thank you, puzzled in Ventura

      I’ve got a job offer in the Roseville/Rocklin area and am looking for an apartment. I have checked websites like (apartmentratings.com) and have not had much luck locating something nice. Many of the apartment tenants reported crimes such as drugs and auto theft at many of the places there.

      Can anyone recommend a decent place? I’m a single guy in need of a one bed one bath unit within a 30 minute commute of Roseville? I don’t mind paying a little extra but it must be in a clean, safe and respectable environment. My preference is for basic amenities such as off street parking, nearby laundromat and well maintained premises. I don’t need the pool or fitness center.
