    • 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?

      Transportation From Oceanside to Venice Beach

      by reallyamermaid Online Now Aug 18, 2015 at 10:45 AM

      We plan to fly into San Diego and take the Coaster to Oceanside. While we're staying there we want to go up the coast to Venice Beach and hit Dana Point on the way. What would be the best transportation heading north from Oceanside? From what I read of the Coaster it runs San Diego-Oceanside, not any more North than that. My husband hasn't lived there since the early 90's so he's not sure what has/has not changed.

      San Clemente State Beach

      by zenastar Online Now Jun 2, 2009 at 9:02 PM

      The closest forum to this site is Oceanside but I really want to know about San Clemente State Beach. There is very little information on the websight and no one answers the phone when I call the office.
      I want to camp at this beach for the weekend of June 12th. It's my boyfriends 30th birthday so I want everything to go off without a hitch. The reserveamerica websight says they are fully booked.

      I want to know if they have any walk-in camp sights set aside for people who were not able to make reservations and how many.
      What are the chances that I can get a tent (NOT RV) campsight if I show up Thursday night without a reservation? What is the cost?
      Any other information will help.

      Thanks, Zena

      any hostels or budget lodging?

      by snowflier Online Now Jul 4, 2005 at 12:40 AM

      Or how about near Leucadia? Was planning on coming for some surf lessons on Beacons Beach(1 week). But I can't find any hostel on the internet near the beach or even in Oceanside. Does anyone know of any?

      Please provide public transport directions with your suggestions, if possible. E.g how to get from Beacons to the hostel.

      Daily commuting from downtown San Diego would take too long, no?

      I'm headed to Oceanside for 5 days in October, flight's booked (thank you airmiles!) but need to find out what the weather is like at that time of year. I'm assuming it's still fairly warm? And if so, approximately how warm? Need to know so that I pack correctly :-) Thanks! Laura
