    • 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

      Hi everyone,
      My wife's 40th birthday is coming up and I'd like to throw her a surprise party with about 15 people in the Pasadena/Altadena area. She loves nature, outdoors in general. Anybody knows of a gem location in a decent price range? (Huntington, ec... are too expensive for me)
      Thx for any insight !!

      2014 Rose Parade Parking

      by we135b Online Now Dec 26, 2013 at 9:28 PM

      Where is the best place to park for the 2014 rose parade? Easy in and out is preferred over proximity. Our seats are at the corner of Colorado and Orange Grove.

      Rose Parade 2008 - Have where to stay??

      by EPTraveler Online Now Feb 1, 2007 at 12:55 PM

      I just reserved seats for the parade that are very close to the corner of Orange Grove and Colorado. My next challenge is to figure out where to stay, and how to get through the New Years Day madness to the parade. We are trying to avoid renting a car at this point. A couple questions for anyone who can help:

      1. Are there any mid-priced hotels located within walking distance of that intersection?

      2. If not, are there hotels that offer transportation to the Parade either free of charge to their guests, or for a minimal fee?

      If there is smarter way to do this that anyone can recommend,I am totally open to suggestions at this point.

      Thank you.

    • Rose Parade--where to sit

      I'm thinking of trying to see the Rose Parade by arriving on 1/1 in the early AM and sitting near the end of the parade route. Will there be decent viewing opportunities or am I nuts and just need to bite the bullet and arrive a day ahead?

    • Pasadena, CA: Need Suggestions for a surprise Birthday dinner

      by SecretBirthday Online Now Nov 14, 2006 at 1:25 PM

      My girlfriend's 30th birthday is coming up, and me and her friends want to throw a surprise birthday party at a nice restaurant.

      There's going to be about 20 people and we want it to be around20-30 per person, and the restaurant should be pretty classy.

      We were thinking of Houston's restaurant, but they wouldn't take reservations for more than 5 people.

      Any suggestions?

      Rose Parade 2008

      by EPTraveler Online Now Nov 7, 2006 at 7:58 AM

      We would like to attend next year's Parade (New Years Day, 2008). I am looking for tips on how to have the best experience with the least amount of stress. Is it too late to plan for 2008? I appreciate anyone who can help with:

      Where to stay;
      Who to go to for reserved bleacher seats for the parade;
      How to get from hotel to parade;
      Information on how to tour the floats before and after the parade. Possibly watch them being made.

      We are not looking for a bargin basement experience, but always appreciate a good deal.

      Thanks you!

      Restaurant recommendations in Pasadena area?

      by karenincalifornia Online Now Jun 23, 2006 at 10:25 PM

      I lived in Pasadena until 1997 and will be returning with my family for a short visit in a couple of weeks after being away for 9 years. I'm no longer familiar with the restaurant scene. We want to eat dinner a couple of nights in Pasadena (or South Pas). What is your favorite restaurant in either city?
