      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!

    • Downtown SF to Sunnyvale, by train or car?

      San Francisco May 13, 2015 at 8:47 AM

      Dear VT members,

      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?
      Thank you!

    • 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.

      - Lombard Street
      - Nob Hill
      - Cable cars
      - A sightseeing tour or hop-on-hop-off bus (not sure of this line)
      - Fisherman's wharf
      - Pier 39
      - Renting Bike from Fisherman's wharf and passing over Golden Gate Bridge and returning with a ferry ( I am not sure if I can (or have to) visit Presedio with the bike before the bridge. (And/or Golden Gate Park))
      - Apple company store (Sunnyvale - caltrain)

      FROM SAN LUIS TO SAN FRANCISCO BY TRAIN?

      Hi all,

      I have seen on the Viamichelin map finder that there's a train station in SLO, and tracking the rail line, I've seen it goes up north to somewhere around San Francisco. Does anyone know whether I can go by train from SLO to SFO? I thought the only public transportation was Greyhound buses.

      Any clue or website about it? the amtrak webside did not show this itinerary.

      Thanks!
