    • Visiting California for the first time for a football game

      San Francisco Sep 26, 2016 at 4:39 PM

      I'm visiting CA for the first time for a football game in November. I will be in Santa Clara at Levi's Stadium. I'm going to extend my stay and do some traveling to other parts of Northern CA. I'm thinking of either going to San Francisco and driving to Sonoma or Napa Valleys. I also have thought of driving along the coast to Monterey and Big Sur. I'm wondering if it makes sense to stay for any length of time in Silicon Valley. Are there things to do there that merit my spending more time?

    • SF/LV/LA trip itinerary help

      California Sep 28, 2016 at 11:19 AM

      Hi everyone, I am travelling for the first time to California, and need a bit of assistance. I am landing at LAX at roughly 13:30, and should probably be out of the airport by 14:30. Our trip will be mid January for a total of 17 days. And I have already got flights from SFO-LAS, and then LAS-LAX. All the accommodation is already booked, now its all about the finer details to the trip.

      Part 1: The first bit of info that I need is regarding getting from LAX to San Francisco, I have been advised to take the PCH and stop over for the night in Morro Bay/Cayucos, then drive early the next day to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for a few hours before making our way to San Francisco. I have read many forums saying its not advisable to make that trip in 1 day, as theres too much to see, which I agree with... Unfortunately its that or take a flight direct to San Francisco. Please can you tell me if it is at all worth making that drive, or just taking a flight.

      Part 2: We will spend 5 nights in San francisco, and I am struggling to define what are must do's, as so many people recommend different things... right now this is my plan, please critique it,and help me make the right choices.

      Day 1: Arrive at the hotel mid day in Fishermans Wharf, spend an hour or two relaxing at the hotel, then going out to explore the Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli's and maybe catch the evening tour of Alcatraz. Return and have dinner close to the hotel.
      Day 2: Head out just after sunrise, taking the Cable car from Fishermans Wharf to Market street, and will probably walk to the Ferry Building and explore there, then make our way back to Union Square, and up to china town and exploring there. Afterwards, taking the cable car to Lombard street, then head back to the hotel, relax before dinner and find a nice area to eat with some music.

      Side note -- please can you tell me if i fit too many or too little things per day

      Day 3: Up and out early again to Steiner Str to walk through the park and see the Pink Ladies. Up to Golden Gate Park and the Academy of Science, the Morrison Planetarium, and the Japanese Tea Garden. then to the Golden gate bridge, will probably rent a bicycle and cycle to the other end... We would love to from here, go to Muir woods, spend an hour there, before making our way back to the hotel, again relax a bit, then go out for dinner.
      Day 4 : This day is still up for debate, but my wife would love to see Yosemite for the day... I know that you can easily spend a week without seeing everything, but the thought is that while we are on the west coast, we should make the effort to see the park, or at least as much as we can in 1 day.
      Day 5 : Take a small group tour to Napa and spend the day exploring the wineries.

      Part 3 : Departing to Vegas at around 11am, spending 3 nights there. This part of the trip is pretty much easy enough to plan for, but the highlight would be a helicopter trip to the grand canyon.

      Part 4 : Depart Vegas to LAX, we will be spending 4 nights staying in Hollywood area, and another 4 nights saying in Anaheim. Now for this part of the journey, we LOVE theme parks, and we are dedicating 3-4 days to it.

      Day 1 : Land at LAX at 13:00, make our way to the hotel, relax for a few hours, then off to see Hollywood BLVD, for the rest of the night.
      Day 2 : Drive to Six Flags Magic Mountain ( Never been to a Six Flags before, looking forward to it).
      Day 3 : Universal Studios
      Day 4 : Tour around LA (Please help me which things to see)
      Day 5 : Move to the new hotel in Anaheim, and explore the area for the day
      Day 6 : DisneyLand
      Day 7 : Disney Adventure

      Side Note: Let me know if 2 days is too much for these 2 parks.

      Day 8 : Still debatable, was thinking of driving to San diego for the last day.

      We fly out the next morning at 1AM, so don't want to do too much on the last day... pretty much just relax.

      That you all in advance for the advise and I look forward to you responses.

      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

      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?
