      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!

    • Returning back to overseas from LAX or SFO, does it worth gaining time or gaining money?

      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.

      by ZoeM12 Online Now Mar 28, 2015 at 6:56 PM

      Ok, so our first trip we had planned for a one yr anniversary got ruined so this year i need it to be special.

      My Fiance and I are traveling to South Lake for our 2 year anniversary. We are on a tight budget and he has never been to that side of Tahoe, and Im not too familiar either. I need ideas!

      We both enjoy thee forest areas, he is able to drink, but i am not so bars and night life arent the best.

      We are really only looking to make memories not break the bank. I enjoy horseback riding and he enjoys going out and exploring. We both dont ski or snowboard, and arent interested either.

      We are going in April on the 19th- 22nd. Right now all I have planned is visiting my favorite burger place from when I was younger, Burger Lounge, and MAYBE go to Zephyr Cove Stables. but that still leaves so much more time in the days we are there.

      HELP ME? haha.

      Hello, it has been a long time since I have visited this site. I a trying to plan a last minute camping trip for my family. I have 3 year old triplets, so I am concerned the camping in the lake area would be too cold at night for little ones. Are there places driving distance to the park and lake that are at a lower elevation, and thus, possibly not too cold. It looks like the overnight norms are around the low 40s near the lake. Thanks

    • Lake Tahoe need help with route

      by cavangal Online Now May 19, 2014 at 1:06 PM

      I arrive into SFO last week of August. Plan dividing my time between Lake Tahoe, and spending some time in Monterey/Carmel, returning to San Francisco for 1 or 2 overnights at end of journey. I have been to San Francisco 5 times and always enjoy walking across Golden Gate Bridge and walking in Golden Gate State Park. Need help planning easiest route as I normally travel Amtrak bus and train and want help traveling most direct way to avoid backtracking. What would be the easiest way to accomplish this, should I continue to Monterey/Carmel for first stop on day of arrival, which is a shorter journey if I get transportation. If so I could avoid having to pay for hotel. What is easiest route from Monterey up to Lake Tahoe, and will it require overnight stopover? If this is the case should I decide on hotel in Sacramento as have not been to that city even though I took a day trip to Lake Tahoe years ago and remember passing through. Would like to spend 1 or 2 nights in San Francisco at end of journey to enjoy the places I visited on earlier trips. I would also consider stopping off in new places if anyone can make good suggestions. Would like help if someone can recommend hotel in Lake Tahoe in convenient area where I can do hiking and nice scenic walks and take local bus or shuttle to other areas around lake. I will not be visiting casinos. I am active senior traveling solo and hope to get lots of help as I plan my travels. Many thanks to all.
