    • Coronado Ferry to mainland for touring?

      San Diego Dec 23, 2016 at 12:17 PM

      Two young seniors spending 4 days in San Diego in February and staying on Coronado. Will have a car. Is it advisable to take the ferry back and forth to see (walk/ taxi) some of the mainland sites? Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, perhaps, Balboa Park (Zoo), etc.? How about if we want dinner on the mainland? Or should we drive to most places? Itinerary not set yet.

    • Specific Location

      Los Angeles Jan 6, 2017 at 6:48 AM

      Hi. I posted another question about where to stay but am now more specific with areas. We will be going to Universal one day, Warner Brothers tour, doing things near Hollywood Blvd area, and then exploring other tourist things.

      Which area/hotel is better...near Universal City (Studio City hotel) or Hollywood Blvd (Hollywood Celebrity hotel), near but off Hollywood Blvd a bit (Days Inn) or Thai Town (Dixie Hotel)? We will have a car but am thinking one of those.
      Have narrowed it down to one of those based on budget and not being too far from Universal and Hollywood Blvd area. We have Hollywood Celebrity booked (but we can cancel).

    • Where to Stay?

      Los Angeles Jan 2, 2017 at 5:45 AM

      We'll be coming to Los Angeles in the summer with our kids and will have 4 days to do touristy things (Hollywood walk of fame and Hollywood Blvd area, Universal Studios, Warner Brother's Tour, Santa Monica Pier, La Brae Tar Pits, etc).

      I'm having trouble deciding on a hotel. We are on a budget since we'll need to keep money for LA plus 4 days at Disney. Anyone stayed at Days Inn near Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood Celebrity, Comfort Inn...or hotels in Thai Town such as Dixie Hotel, Hollywood City Inn? We will most likely be renting a car for our LA days.

    • One Day Van Hire

      by NZJellybean Online Now Sep 11, 2013 at 3:41 AM

      Hi there. We are spending two weeks in Anaheim, ending our holiday with a Carnival Cruise to Mexico. As we are arriving early into port at Long Beach, and don't need to be at LAX til the evening we would like to hire a car for the day, driving ourselves to the airport. There are two families (8 in total, with LUGGAGE). We would like to hire a passenger van instead of two cars as we are from NZ and only one driver is experienced in driving in the US. So far the hire companies I have contacted only do a minimum of a three day hire. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Ashley

      by JulietBonita Online Now Feb 25, 2012 at 8:02 AM

      Thank you for all the wonderful replys I got previously.
      I am changing my mind and have a new plan ! aFter all that sorry.
      Right we are'nt rich, we do be so happy by just seeing the sun and beach . Going to usa and seeing Disneyland , nice beaches etc will be great ( We are from Ireland) haha..altho I am used to hot weather from living in spain for years.
      MY boyfriend and I have now decided that we always try to see and do to much, and get ahead of ourselves and forget hey we don't have the money for this so now our new plan is
      Fly in into LAX.. get the southern california city pass before we go online..
      stay in the Anaheim Resort for most of the trip .. go to disneyland etc and rent a car and roam around during the day ..
      We realy want to Go and see Gran Canyon. and we Saw a good deal from Anahiem to vegas , its 2days and one night for 622 dollars around 500 euros for us..
      pick you up from Anaheim hotels bring you to Vegas .. arrive there at 1pm then early in morning get a flight over Gran Canyon and bring you back to Anaheim resort.. includes nights accomodation, snacks, water etc .. bus is air contioned luxury and window seats for plane.. is this too good to be true, seems like a good deal
      Saw it on a site called "all anaheim tours"
      My new questions are
      When I arrive in LA should I stay there for night or two ? or go to Anaheim ? and drive or get bus etc into La whenver we please.What is more advisable?
      I want too see LA and go to universal studios etc.. is La far from Anaheim?
      Il be returning there for flight home.. so we will bookk to stay there day and night before our flight home..
      In Anaheim is there nice beaches, things to do and see outside Disneyland? or not too long away by car? excuse my ingorance.
      I want to go To San Diego also and go to Seaworld.. should I stay there for the night when I vist or is not too far to return to Anaheim that night by bus/train rather then driving ourselves?
      Any one recommend a hotel in Anaheim, thats not to expensive . I am on a site called Americanhoildays based in Ireland, hotels seem very reasonably priced but I dont know if there in good location etc heres one that I thought might be nice , if others are familar with this could you let me know what you think please and thank you so much .

      Please Excuse my ignorance I have alot of questions to ask. So ill get to it haha
      Where should I stay in Southern California ? LA , Anaheim or should I do a few days here and there. I would like to See The Gran Canyon also in Arizona too since travelling all that way it be nice to see one of the worlds wonders, do tour trips run from la etc there?
      Does anyone have itinerarys theyd recommend for me please?
