30-something American living temporarily in Valencia... Seeking mellow, friendly, welcoming to foreigners but not touristy types of places - cafes/bars/lounges that aren't packed to the gils with local teenagers. Or smoke. Any ideas?

A few questions...I live in the U.S. Philadelphia, which airlines offer the best rates for transatlantic flights from Philadelphia, New York, or Newark? How is the weather in Valencia during the last few weeks of September? How are the city beaches in Valencia (hopefully, nicer than Barcelona)? Which towns close to Valencia are nicest (I like old seaside towns with picturesque views and old town center (like Sitges); I need to get there by train from Valencia... Lastly, what is the best way to go...stay in Valencia (any b&bs?) or stay outside of Valencia city (need place to be accessible by train and the town itself should have the ambiance described above)... Also, are the eatteries on the beach still open in late September? Thanks so much for previewing my question! Joan

Hello, I read on another Web site that on the beach near Valencia (wherever the bus drops you off, I assume) you can rent chairs, and buy food/drink... is this still true, and if it is about how much are the chairs, and are they generally secure? I'll most likely be alone, so I don't want to avoid going in the water afraid my bus pass will get stolen! Thanks!
Is there anywhere to buy discounted tickets for some of the touristy attractions in Valencia, like the City of Arts and Sciences and L'Oceanogràfic

Hi, I'm an Italian girl and I'm planning an holiday in Valencia. During my journey there will be the Superbike World Championship at Ricardo Tormo. I will be staying in an hotel at the center of Valencia and I really really don't know how to get to the Circuit in Cheste. I've search the Internet and I've found Bunol bus services and some Renfe regional train that can take me to Cheste. There is any other way to get STRAIGHT to the Circuit? Thanks a lot!!
Hey Again, I recently posted another topic about getting to Valencia and such. Now I'm here and having a great time! But now I have another dilemma. I am going to the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia and from what I see, their gym facilities are not that great, and I'm really itching to work out and work off all the good food I've eaten lately. Does anyone know of a good gym just to casually be able to workout a few times a week? Also, having it be somewhat close to the university area would be a plus, though I don't mind a light jog on my way to the gym. Any recommendations would be most helpful. Thanks! Vanessa
Hello everybody, In a few months i will be going to Valencia for three days. And now i´m looking for a nice hostel in the centre of Valencia. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Hey Everyone, I will be studying abroad for 6 months in Valencia at Universidad Politecnica de Valencia and leaving in a couple of weeks. Though I have been assigned a mentor, it's not really working out and someone recommended that I try asking my questions here. I will be arriving with 2 large suitcases and a carry-on. For the first couple of nights while I look for an apartment, I will be staying at the Purple Nest Hostel on La Plaza Tetuan. Does anyone know the best and somewhat most convenient mode of transportation to get there from the airport? I was considering the metro, but with so much luggage it may be a bit of a pain. Then again, maybe I'm wrong. Also, if anyone is familiar with the university campus/area, let me know because I would have a lot of questions for you. I would have some good questions like what kinds of banks are in the area. Their website does not provide too much practical information. So if anyone can help me out, I would really appreciate it. Vanessa

Hello all, We have, perhaps, chosen the worst time to try to park in Valencia-Grand Prix week. However, we arrive on Thursday 21st Aug and are there for four nights. Can anyone suggest an out-of-the-way parking place? We are staying in the centre but don't mind having to catch a bus to where we are parked. Many thanks
7 of us including kids and cases! are arriving by hire car at Valencia airport at 7:30 on the 16th and want to catch the Valencia train to Barcelona at 8:35.. which would be the best/easiest way. When I looked on various sites they said it would be about 15euros by taxi so obviously 30euros for 2 taxis but when I contacted one of the taxi firms by email www.taxivalencia.com they quoted 30euros each taxi ie 60euros for the two.. can anyone help with some suggestions.. Thanks
Going for a long weekend in Valencia, in September. Have a group of friends booked into the Beatriz Rey Don Jaime Hotel which is in the Avenida Baleares. However, will we be too far from the centre, nightlife, restaurants, etc? If so, can anyone recommend another hotel nearer to the "action"! Along the same price...we're currently paying 95 Euros each. Thanks
Hi, I have heard that Malverossa beach is the most popular in Valencia. I am planning to stay in August 7-10 days in Valencia. It will be a summer holliday so I would like to spend most of the time on the beach - swimming in the sea, but I also want to sea more of Valencia beautiful architecture. I would like to stay in a hotel close to a clean beach in Valencia, where I can also find some link towards "Yellow bus" for El Saler beach and access to a public transport to the old city of Valencia. I need a room that is not more than 70 Euros per day... is it possible to find?
Hi, I'm looking for a reasonably priced hotel near the Ciutat de la Justicia (within about 10 mins walking). I'll be visiting for 5 days in October, most of the hotels I've tried are either booked out already or are very expensive. Just wondered if anyone has local or insider info that I'm missing as I don't know the area at all and would appreciate your tips. Many thanks, Anne Marie

Does anyone know hostal el rincon, calle carda 11, valencia? is it in a good location? How is best way to go from airport to the hostal,please? thanks
We are staying in Valencia for 4 nights next week and apart from 1 day when we go to Villarreal for the match with Liverpool we will be in and around the city. We would like to see Valencias stadium on one of the days - do they offer stadium tours? If so can we go on any day or is it open only on certain days? Will Valencia be playing any friendly games at home next week or is it too early as I think they have only just returned to training? On the other days we will probably mix a little sight seeing with a beach trip but on the whole it should be a relaxing trip in the sunshine! Any suggestions on what is not to be missed would be welcome - not along the lines of museums or too much culture though please :) KQ
