    • 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.

      I will be attending a wedding in Bakersfield in November. I am looking to rent a house for 4/5 couples and 4 kids for 2 or 3 nights. The closest I can find is Tehachapi, but that is a bit further from Bakersfield than we would like. Any ideas or suggestions?

    • thinking about moving to Bakersfield, need advice

      by VAFields Online Now Jun 12, 2003 at 11:11 AM

      I am a 23 year old college grad. My boyfriend and I want to move to California. We were giving serious thought to Bakersfield, but I've gotten mixed reviews about the town. We are looking for a town that has a population over 150,000 that has nice weather and semi-affordable living. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
