    • Recommended destinations in Death Valley

      Death Valley National Park Yesterday

      Flying to LA from UK mid December. I'm then hiring car and driving to Death Valley, probably staying at hotel in Furnace Creek which I recall from last trip 25 years ago. Two nights stay before driving on. So I'd appreciate recommendations on any 'must see' places in/around Death Valey please. Also possible solo hiking, say 5-8 miles? Oh, and what weather can I expect?

    • What to do in Saratoga and San Francisco in October?

      San Francisco Sep 5, 2016 at 8:22 PM

      I'm attending a conference in Saratoga in October that will last 3-4 days. I would like recommendations for hotels and things to do in the afternoon and evenings. I'm interested in wine tastings and would like to go to the tech museum. I will not have a car. Once the conference is over, I will take the train to San Francisco. I know there is a lot to see in the city, so would love some ideas about where to stay and how to make the best use of my time.

    • What the parks service don't say

      Yosemite National Park Sep 5, 2016 at 1:00 PM

      We're from the UK and have bought an RV for our road trip which will be in stages. We would like to be in Yosemite in late April or early May, could be mid May. RV is 31 feet long, tow car say 15 feet with the connection. Should we abandon one or the other outside the park? Is there a campground that will accept both? Easy to disconnect and back in provided it's permitted to park alongside This would be the best option for retirees going out by day in the car and having a base to return to.

      Which camp ground/site number should we be hovering our mouse over when the dates are released? This is a very specific question but someone may know a goody or three.

      The Camp sites outside the park seem a very long way, talk of a 45 minute drive in doesn't really feel like the full Yosemite experience. Advice welcome.

    • Drive Through Death Valley in May or June?

      Death Valley National Park Aug 27, 2016 at 9:54 AM

      I wanna do a road trip in 2017. I want to go late may to early june, after visit Vegas, i wana drive through death valley. I would start early in vegas then visit dantes view, badwater, artist palette and masquite sand dunes. I would leave vegas at 6am, and have to leave mesquite dunes at about 6pm, driving to mammoth lakes for staying the night.

      Is this time enough to see those points? I heard it is really hot in may and june, but they mention it should be okay if you just want to visit the places by car, and not do long hikes or so. Is that true?

      I have to do it in late may or early june, because of the seasonal road closure in Yosmite Park..

      What do you think about it?

    • California Roadtrip & Yellowstone NP, When & What Car?

      California Aug 29, 2016 at 4:05 AM

      I'm planning a Roadtrip to California. I would arrive at Los Angeles. I want to see LA (2days are enough, been here before) Las Vegas Yosemite San Francisco Drive from SF to LA via Highway No1 with 1-2 stopover nights.

      And i want to see Yellowstone National Park by fly to Idaho/Jackson hole

      My timeframe would be around 20days.

      So when to go? I could go in Late April-Early June, or Septemper-October.

      Spring: Tioga Pass maybe still closed, for Yosmite i would have to go via Bakersfield Yosmite would have beautiful waterfalls LV Area is not so hot Coastal Weather at HGW1 would be not so good ( i head) Yellowstone nice

      Fall: Tioga Pass sure open No waterfalls, but maybe autumn colors? Coastal Weather is good (they write sep-oct is best for that) LV are not so hot Yellowstone nice

      What would you suggest. I read that Yellowstone is both nice in Spring and Fall so that is not the critical point. In Spring i maybe will hit Memorial Day what would result in high cost and many people?

      About the car, what would be best for this journey, is a 4x4 or so needed? I would go for a standard SUV thing, but maybe there's something better?

    • Visiting Burbank - need some suggestions

      by moefer5 Online Now Oct 31, 2011 at 7:40 AM

      I will be traveling to Burbank, CA next week to see a taping of the Conan O'Brien show. My two daughters (18 and 25) will be with me. Any advice on things we can do during the day and in the evening? Also, my 18-year-old will be celebrating her birthday while we are there - any recommendations on a fun, semi-dressy place to take her? She's very much into celebrities so a place where we may have luck spotting some would be an extra bonus. (p.s. - we're not obnoxious and wouldn't approach anyone - just out for some people watching). Also - we're from the Midwest and do not want to look like geeky tourists - any suggestions on how to dress would be nice too (already told to leave my capris at home by my 25 year old.) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
