      Can anyone advise two Brits in their late 50s, who love camping, where to stay for a three-night stay next November '17?
      I have camped there before in 1980, but no longer being the young buck I never was, we would like to stay in a more convenient location.
      Alas, the logistics of packing all of our camping stuff is already leading to WW3 as we shall be driving there from San Francisco, before going back to Napa Valley.
      Many thanks for your suggestions and advice.

      Will be in SFO for 3 full days

      San Francisco Nov 23, 2016 at 11:11 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I will be going for the first time in SFO on the third week of December before I head to LA. I was going to go with my sibling but ended up now going solo.

      I just thought if anyone of you who lives in SFO, and is free, could show me around? Nothing better than having a good company by a local. I decided not to take any summer classes at Uni (currently studying Law) - so I am looking forward to a memorable summer holiday in the USA. 

      Will be in SFO from 16-19 December 2016. Please let me know :) 32yo; male; traveller; sensible person here. 

      Regards from the Land Down Under :)

    • US-Roadtrip to California in 2017

      California Nov 14, 2016 at 6:54 AM

      Hello :)

      Me (Jennifer, 19) and my best friend (Lea, 18) want to do a road trip in fall 2016 by car.
      - We plan to rent a car, since i work for a big company, we can rent a car through our company rental card. So our age will not be a problem. A normal sedan car would be fine for us.
      - We like to / can stay up to 20days
      - We like to stay in hotels. Not 5 Stars, but the hotels should be good!

      We want to start in Los Angeles, and visit the city for a few days. Then maybe drive to Las Vegas and see the city. From Las Vegas we want to see something of the desert, maybe DeathValley, Monument National Park, Grand Canyon? :) And then it would be nice to go from Las Vegas to San Francisco and visit the city. After that we like to drive the coastal highway one down to either Los Angeles or San Diego (if the drive from LA to San Diego is nice?).

      Soo... my questions:
      Do you think its a good idea? What should we see visit? How many days do you advice, and where? Any idea how much it will cost? We saw that hotels in LA are around (200-400$/night per room for a double room). Are the other cities similar to that price? What should we definitely do and what definitely avoid? :)

      Thank yo for your answers,
      - Jennifer :)

      We will spend 5 nights in the Carmel area end of April. We are looking for a nice romantic hotel with access to walks by the ocean and other points of interest. We would be grateful for any advice from all you seasoned travellers. This is our first vacation for a few years so we don't mind spending a little more than usual.
      What will the weather be like then?
      Thank you in anticipation.

      Spending three nights in this area in Oct....our first time in CA. Thought we wanted to stay in Carmel, but now we're not sure. We're in our early 60's, love the beach (walk/jog), good restaurants, a little shopping, and want to stay in a nice, comfortable hotel/B&B within walking distance to beach and town. We are continuing down Hwy 1 to LA. Thanks for any suggestions!

    • Romantic stay at Carmel

      by Mafufo Online Now May 7, 2010 at 1:34 PM

      Am traveling with my girlfriend to San Francisco, but we are planning to stay for one night in Carmel, because I have been told its beatiful. I already rented a car, so I can drive from the SFO airport on thursday down to Carmel.

      I've seen some nice hotels in Carmel by the Sea, but also on Pacific Grove, Monterey and even Peble Beach, and I don't know the difference between each of the places.

      Where is the best place to stay on a Romantic get away?
      What to do on the day?
      What hotel, inn, or b&b would you recomend?

    • Carmel-by-the-Sea -- Looking for Tips from Experienced Travellers

      by Perilux2 Online Now Sep 25, 2008 at 5:35 PM

      I'm planning a weekend getaway with a friend and I'm looking for a good place to stay in Carmel.

      We've done a few trips together, but we're young and broke and always end up staying at some cheap motel. This time I'd like to splurge a little bit on some sort of Inn or smaller hotel with a good, relaxing vibe.

      Also, if anyone from the area knows about any great places to eat or experiences to try, I'm all ears. I know there's alot more to Carmel than just the one strip of shops.

      Thanks!

      4th July in Carmel?

      Hi , it's possible that the itinerary for my wife and i and 15 yr old son will find us in the vicinity of Carmel/Monterey on 4th July. Can you tell me if, being Independence Day, whether everything shuts down and things are very quiet, or is it a mass celebration with a good vibe, parties, fireworks etc???
      Please give me a feeling for the day.
      Would it be better or worse if we were in the Big Sur area on the 4th or wouldn't it matter?

      We will be leaving from LA to carmel, monterey,san francisco and napa. I want to know if we could stay in carmel and just travel to monterey and big sur. I believe we will be going up the 101 (scenice highway). How long does it take to get from LA to carmel?

      I was thinking about staying at the candle light in. We will only be there one night. Are there any suggestions on things we must do if we have half a day on sunday-sunday night-and half a day on monday.

      How far is it from carmel to San Francisco?
