    • Weather November

      California Feb 1, 2017 at 1:44 AM

      I know I asked yesterday about Florida but we are also looking at Palm/Desert Springs California - what is the weather liable to be like in November

      Will the roads be snow free to Las Vegas and what is the weather liable to be like in Vegas in November.

      Plan to possibly fly to Los Angeles - use Desert/Palm Springs and tour from there and possibly take a few days out to visit Vegas - could even fly into Vegas if the flights were cheaper

      Many thanks for so many questions

    • Internatiola flight to lax and then national flight

      Los Angeles Jan 26, 2017 at 10:37 AM

      We are arriving at 26.September at LAX

      Our flight - LX40 Swiss - will arrive at 4:30PM, we checked online that is usually on time.

      We want to fly the same day from LAX to Las vegas. How much stopover time should we calculate?

      Possible flights:
      7:05 PM - Delta
      9:05 PM - United
      10:40 PM - United

      We currently looking at the 7:05 PM, but we don't know, is 2.5 hrs enough for transfer - to less or to much?

      I've an early morning flight out of OAK and need to leave my car for 7-9 days. Is there a "NOT too pricey, but not too trashy" hotel option that has a shuttle to the airport and will let me leave my car there for a nominal fee? Ideas?

      Nobody posts in this forum! Well, here are a few questions :)

      by greencargirl Online Now Feb 26, 2012 at 2:52 PM

      Hi! I wonder if anyone will even see this, but we have a few questions about visiting Oakland.

      What's the best way to get from Lake Merritt to the Rockridge restaurant area? I'll be travelling with a couple of kids (a tween and a teen), and we're staying at a b&b type place right near the park on the Lake. Any public transportation tips will be great, such as how to get to Piedmont dining area, Berkely dining area (thinking of splurging there on Chez Pannisse, but not sure yet), UCB, Palo Alto, etc.

      Thanks everyone (anyone?)!

      Given all the little bars and entertainment that has popped up in the last couple of years, I'm wondering what people's favorites are...

      I plan to attend a concert on 9/10 @ Arroyo Viejo Park. Is it relatively safe in that area of town? I'm coming in from out of town & will travel via public transpo from the airport. Any suggestions on what bus route from the Coliseum Station is best to get me closest to the park?

      Thanks for any info.
