      Hostels to stay in near Union Station LA

      Los Angeles Apr 5, 2014 at 7:26 AM

      Hello all!

      I am flying into LAX next Sunday at 9pm and I am looking for a place to stay until I get my AMTRAX train from Union Station up to San Francisco on Tuesday morning.

      I am planning to go straight from the airport to a hostel / hotel near Union station where I can sleep and recover from Jet lag. I want to stay by Union Station the following Monday day and night so I can be near by to collect my train on the tuesday morning.

      Does anybody recommend the best / cheapest way to get from LAX to Union Station on a Sunday night?

      Does anybody have any recommendations for places to stay near Union Station?

      I am thinking a cheap and friendly youth hostel?

      Also, what type of area is Union Station in?
      Are there any interesting places in walking distance?
      Coffee shops or parks where I can just chill for the afternoon?

      I really look forward to hearing from you!
      Many thanks,

      Hi...my boyfriend and I are planning a trip to California at the end of August...We are flying into Reno and spending a few days in Tahoe. I was wondering what area you would suggest for a 25&23 year old? A nice day for us would be relaxing by water, maybe jet-skiing or parasailing or something, a cheap/quick lunch, a cute dinner and maybe some drinks afterwards. I prefer to walk everywhere, if possible, but I do want the best views and scenery. Any thoughts/suggestions would be a huge help!

      Also, what is the weather like end of August? And is the water swimmable?

We would like some kind of group lodging, preferably ski in ski out. Would like to be in an area with lots of things to do so that if anyone chooses not to ski, can do other things (ie ice skate, sledding). Nightlife also a plus.

      Basically, trying to find something that fits everyone!

I know Squaw is famous for good April snow but which other nearby resorts would you recommend? Are they all the same in terms of weather and snow conditions or are some more vulnerable to earlier icey or slushy conditions? I was told heavenly is good in april.
