    • 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.
      Thanks.

    • 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.

      Los Angeles Jan 4, 2017 at 1:48 PM

      Young senior couple staying in Santa Monica with a car for 10 days in late February and thinking of a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park. Is that feasible? And if so, can I add a stop in Palm Springs to the day trip?

      Thanks.

      Bicycle Oregon Coast to Arcata California

      by Trailhead Online Now Aug 14, 2011 at 8:47 AM

      I will be bicycling the Oregon coast through the Redwood forest in early Sept. and I have searched VT for guides on this activity but the results seem to be focus on driving or visiting.

      If anyone else will be touring the coast via bicycle, let me know.

      I have found plenty of information via the web but would welcome feedback on the following:

      1) General comments and recommendation for the tour (I will be camping).

      2) Any "must dos" or "must stops"?

      3) Best places to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner

      4) Best camp sites

      5) Best places for a beer

      6) Any information on the airport in Arcata, CA, and getting there...flying with a bike at that airport...closest campground or hotels in the area...

      7) What and where to avoid

      8) Any issues on biking to the airport.

      Thanks for the help.

      one rockin' place and also one cheap decent place to spend the night...

      by hotcoaldance Online Now Aug 18, 2008 at 11:31 PM

      Hello friends!
      I'll consider suggestions about campgrounds as well as cheap motels.
      I'll be in Arcata on the 12th of September and I would love to go check out the 'music scene' in your town.
      Regarding the music: what are the best spots for non mainstream bands? any link to your local paper with the listings of gigs?
      Regarding where to spend the night:I imagine we'll be going to sleep really late, so a humble place is just fine for us. ...but safe, and clean would be great!
      Any tip of any nature for a 24-hrs-in-Arcata situation would be appreciated. even just where to go take a good walk and enjoy your community...or nature

      ...yes, we're 2 musician on a tight budget ;)

      thank you so much!

      Moving to Arcata or Eureka

      by mysticada Online Now Nov 10, 2002 at 4:42 AM

      I am planning a move to either Eureka or Arcata could someone give me an idea of jobs and housing rentals available and I also have a 12 yr old son. Are there lots of kids there? It looks beautiful and very inline with my philosophy of life.
