    • Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration – Wednesday, December 24, 2014, 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.

      Los Angeles 19 hours ago

      1) How early should we be there to get in the line?

      2) the info webpage musiccenter.org/tickets/Cale... states the "Parking under The Music Center is free". However, the Music Center website ->Plan Your Visit ->Parking lists all parking options including rates, NOT free. Can someone tell me is the free parking is just for the County Holiday Celebration? If so,

      3) How to enter "Parking under the The Music Center" Also, we are visiting LA Dec.22-26, is this event worth our time? Thanks.

      My family of four are going to watch a Laker's game on Dec. 23rd, need your advice on where to park. We don't mind walking a few blocks, but of course need your advice if it's safe to walk. The game starts at 7:30pm, so it'd be 10:30pm or later when it ends.

      Thank you very much.

    • 4 Month Holiday Though Cali' (Travel Issues)

      California Dec 8, 2014 at 2:41 PM

      Starting around end of July through to the end of November next year, i plan on travelling, pretty much, the whole length of California.

      Unfortunately i've encountered a problem with my travel plans.
      Originally, i planned on buying a van, driving through Cali and basically living out of the van.
      After extensive research, i've scrapped this plan as it seems more or less impossible to buy, register and insure a car in the U.S as a UK citizen.

      Plan B was to rent a large car/van long term and drive through Cali, once again, mainly living out of the car/van to save money on accommodation. This also comes with it's own problems as i have only just passed my driving test. A lot of rental companies require you to have held a full licence for a minimum of 1 or 2 years.
      Also rental companies charge an extra fee for drivers aged under 25. I am 23...
      AND... the amount of miles i intend on travelling may also incur more charges.
      So that's sounding like a pretty expensive option.

      Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to travel through Cali on a budget? Or a way around massive rental charges?

      Thanks for the help.

    • Where should I sit at AT&T Park?

      San Francisco Dec 6, 2014 at 12:48 PM

      We're visiting California from The UK next year and will be in SF May 2014. Would love to experience a 'ballgame' - been looking at tickets for AT&T Park (Stubhub) but do not have any idea about where the best place to sit is. We know nothing about baseball - just want to savour the atmosphere and meet some friendly SF people. Any suggestions?
      Also, what would be the best way to get to AT&T Park? We'll have a rental car but is public transport the best? We're staying in near Union Square. Kind Regards

      Looking for an apartment in or near Santa Cruz, California

      by Beausoleil Online Now May 19, 2011 at 3:51 PM

      Our daughter is looking for an apartment in or near Santa Cruz, California for about 3 months this summer. Ideally, the rent should be less than1200 US dollars a month. (Yes, I realize it's the coast.) She doesn't need a sea view or even to be near the tourist areas; she's working there.

      Any suggestions, especially with web sites or phone numbers, would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.

    • Revisiting Santa Cruz

      by futuremotion Online Now Jul 20, 2009 at 6:30 PM

      I have been to Santa Cruz in the past--a couple months ago actually--and while I really enjoyed myself I want to embark on my next visit a little bit more well-prepared. I'm a photographer, and the current theme I am interested in revolves around capturing lesser-known about / forgotten spaces. I don't specifically know what to describe what I'm looking for beyond "unconventional". If you know of any extremely unique or interesting attractions that gravitate far away from tourism, I'd love to know about them.

      Thanks!

    • A Quick Day Trip

      by AndreaKalbfleisch Online Now Apr 19, 2008 at 9:31 AM

      Hi All,

      Three of us girls have a day to enjoy Santa Cruz on a spontaneous idea. We will be driving down the coast to get there on Hwy 1. We're leaving from just south of San Francisco.
      Anyone have any ideas of must see and do activities? We're driving down today and it is quite windy but we'd like some fun things to do - great shopping, dining, etc. How about on the drive down. We are open to all ideas. We have money and would pay reasonably for great sites, experiences.
      As always, your advise is most welcome.

      cheap or free things to during a daytrip to santa cruz?

      by sheisaeval Online Now Feb 19, 2008 at 11:46 PM

      Well, next month we'll be taking a daytrip from Fremont to Santa Cruz.

      We are looking for free or cheap uniquely Santa Cruz things to do. Some things we are thinking about are the boardwalk, mystery spot, natural bridge state park, saturn cafe. Any other suggestions?


      Also, for the boardwalk and some state parks, is there any free/cheap parking anywhere? Or even a free parking place and then take the bus to the boardwalk/beach? The boardwalk website said parking was10, and that is a bit pricy.

      Massage school(s) in SC

      by dogsky Online Now Dec 4, 2006 at 6:22 AM

      Hello, good people of Santa Cruz,

      I'm considering moving back and going to massage school. The only school I know of is Twin Lakes College, but so far they haven't responded to my emails. Maybe this says something about the school, but it's also possible they have a good reason. I hope someone here knows about the school or has some experience with the massage program there and can share their thoughts. Also, if there's some other massage school I haven't heard about, please let me know! I'm kind of surprised Santa Cruz doesnt have a really well-known massage school, seems like it should.

      Peace~

      Im intrigued by Santa cruz and i have a few questions...

      - What is the weather like year round? Is santa cruz considred the "sunny" area of the region?

      - Is the nightlife entertaining? Santa cruz seems to be so much more interesting that boring silicon valley.

      -What is the dating scene like? Silicon valley can be hell in the dating world from what ive read, but Santa cruz seems to be its own world(and far enough away) and im pretty sure they have an even ratio of males to females, and when i visited there seemed to be plenty of cute girls.
