    • 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.

    • COMMUTE to San Mateo? - living in Berkeley/Oakland

      by Footballwater Online Now Apr 4, 2006 at 1:08 PM

      My girlfriend just got a job in San Mateo (moving from Austin) and we're trying to decide if the Berkeley/Oakland (rockridge) area is going to creat a killer commute in the morning (7:30ish AM)/evenings (5:00ish PM). I live in Rockridge and can get to San Ramon in 35-40 mins; I just don't know if it's worth it for her to live there and drive to San Mateo.

      Could somebody please give us some insight into commuting from the East Bay to San Mateo? My gut is to avoid the Bay Bridge and just take the 880 to the San Mateo Bridge, but I just don't know how long this drive can be.

      Thank YOU
