I would like to know what are the most recommended places to go for a 3 day stay in San Francisco.
Also, may i know if the is any trustworthy and good for value local tour agencies that can bring me to Alcatraz and Angel Island?
Is there any must try food?
Are these places recommended? Thank you for your kind help.
I'd like to do this as a day trip. I did consider spending the night, but our accommodations for the week are already paid for as a weeky rate.
I'm thinking of taking Hwy 1 down and Hwy 101 back. I don't care to spend a really long time on Hwy 1, but would like to see some of the coast. At which point would you suggest picking up Hwy 1?
And would you take Hwy 68 to Salinas to access Hwy 101 when it is time to head back to SF?
I did read that Big Sur had wonderful views, but with only one day allocated to this, I don't think that is possible.
I'm traveling with my husband and older kids (26-16). We don't plan to stop in Santa Cruz to see the boardwalk entertainment.
I'd appreciate any opinions you might have. Thanks!
We are visiting Palm Springs at the end of June, so far all the hotels I have tried to book are adults only. Can anyone recommend a hotel that will welcome a 16 year old boy and his parents? We are particularly interested in mid-20th century modernism? thanks, Melanie from Manchester, UK.
My husband and I are going to spend the day in West Hollywood, and I've planned several activities that are somewhat close together - LACMA, The Grove and then drinks at Chateau Marmont and a comedy show at the Laugh Factory. We'll be coming from Santa Monica and I had previously thought we could cab in and walk to all of these somewhat close locations, and then cab back at night. Do you recommend this, or would renting a car be a better option?
Taxi driver offers to pick us up at the Getty Villa after our visit, but arrives in 'his own car.'
We are two elderly Australians, traveled to USA for conference and visited New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco and Los Angeles. Last day of our trip and wanted to see Getty. Took a Yellow Cab outside Hilton LAX and very friendly driver. Offers to leave us at Malibu for lunch, pick us up, take us to Getty. Offers to take us to Hilton LAX at Getty Villa closing time.
Driver greets us in own car and against my own code, we got in. Deadlatched the doors, offered to take us the scenic route to hotel with a charge of US$45. I felt uneasy and feigned an upset stomach - threatened possible 'throw-up'. After that he drove us to the hotel, quick smart.
We are puzzled...and feeling foolish. Has this happened to anyone else travelling or living in LA? Was this driver a genuine good Samaritan, or was he scamming? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
How do non drivers get around Lake Tahoe to see the christmas Village and Incline Village and the chrismas shop we were told is open all year round.
We are coming for my son's wedding on the 18th June but want to go out the day after as we are only there for a couple of days before going to San Francisco
We are visiting in June, staying in Eagle Rock and have the following on our hitlist - Santa Monica, Getty Center, Griffith Observatory and main Hollywood sights. We will have our own car but only two full days and I am worried that getting from A to B will take a lot of time as it did on one past visit. Not sure either how to group these attractions geopgraphically and split across the two days. My questions are these:
When are LA peak hour(s) for traffic and yeah, I know it is pretty busy all the time?
Are we better generally using the I and Freeways to get across the city or might other routes be less busy?
If travelling from Getty Center to Griffith Observ. Is it worth going north up 405 and peeling off on Mulholland and driving east at least as far as Laurel Canyon and dropping down on to Franklin or Hollywood Blvds, I am thinking in terms of views/more interest or will this just take forever (Google maps suggests going north and east on the 101). We want some of the journeying to be interesting if possible but Mulholland possibly aside, our main concern is to get from a to b wasting as little time as possible.
