    • 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.

      Things to do around Newport Beach

      by llauraa Online Now Mar 29, 2013 at 5:20 PM

      A g/friend and I are considering a renting a beach house around Newport Beach for a week and a bit. I have visited before and always wanted to go back and stay longer. I loved both Newport and Balboa Island /peninsula - however as we were only there for a day back in 2010 - Im not sure which area would have the most 'going on' in regards to nightlife?
      Interested in:
      -casual cafes and restaurants
      -live music venues
      - nice cocktail lounges OR pubs/taverns to relax & meet locals in
      - any other suggestions would be appreciated - any food experiences we 'must try' ?
      - are thereany wine-tasting options nearby? how far out would need to travel to throw that in
      -Transit services - best way to get back up the highway to LA/malibu without having to hire a car - if possible

      ps what are peoples views on Huntington Beach - does that area have nice potential as a vacation spot? Seems to be a bit more residential ? but I am only going by maps and real estate guides etc
      Thanks all

    • Dinner?

      by stewartfan Online Now Oct 17, 2011 at 11:28 PM

      Hello, a friend and I are travelling down to the Huntington Beach area and are planning on visiting CSU Fullerton. We'll be eating lunch on the way, but we want to find somewhere unique for dinner. Nothing too expensive, nor fancy, nor time consuming. We just want to go somewhere that has great food, with atmosphere being a plus! Preferably a place that's not a huge chain. This should be somewhere in the vicinity of Fullerton/Costa Mesa, but if it's worth it, we're willing to go out of our way.
      Thanks in advance!

      Can someone recommend, from personal experience, a restaurant in Newport Beach where one can get a really nice dinner (good food & ambiance) for less than a fortune?

      Preferred cuisines would be: Mexican or Westcoast

      Balboa Boat Parade parking question

      by londonlover Online Now Nov 2, 2008 at 7:53 PM

      I'm hoping to attend the 2008 Balboa Christmas Boat Parade, but I've heard that parking on the island is impossible during that time because of the crowds. Does anyone know whether it would be feasible to park in the ferry parking lot in Newport Beach, or is that likely to be full as well? (I would be planning to cross over to the island around 4 PM for the 6:30 parade start time.) Thanks!
