      Yosemite National Park Nov 6, 2016 at 4:28 AM

      Can anyone advise two Brits in their late 50s, who love camping, where to stay for a three-night stay next November '17?
      I have camped there before in 1980, but no longer being the young buck I never was, we would like to stay in a more convenient location.
      Alas, the logistics of packing all of our camping stuff is already leading to WW3 as we shall be driving there from San Francisco, before going back to Napa Valley.
      Many thanks for your suggestions and advice.

      Will be in SFO for 3 full days

      San Francisco Nov 23, 2016 at 11:11 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I will be going for the first time in SFO on the third week of December before I head to LA. I was going to go with my sibling but ended up now going solo.

      I just thought if anyone of you who lives in SFO, and is free, could show me around? Nothing better than having a good company by a local. I decided not to take any summer classes at Uni (currently studying Law) - so I am looking forward to a memorable summer holiday in the USA. 

      Will be in SFO from 16-19 December 2016. Please let me know :) 32yo; male; traveller; sensible person here. 

      Regards from the Land Down Under :)

      Are Alaska Airlines usually on time?
      Both flights will be international flights

    • US-Roadtrip to California in 2017

      California Nov 14, 2016 at 6:54 AM

      Hello :)

      Me (Jennifer, 19) and my best friend (Lea, 18) want to do a road trip in fall 2016 by car.
      - We plan to rent a car, since i work for a big company, we can rent a car through our company rental card. So our age will not be a problem. A normal sedan car would be fine for us.
      - We like to / can stay up to 20days
      - We like to stay in hotels. Not 5 Stars, but the hotels should be good!

      We want to start in Los Angeles, and visit the city for a few days. Then maybe drive to Las Vegas and see the city. From Las Vegas we want to see something of the desert, maybe DeathValley, Monument National Park, Grand Canyon? :) And then it would be nice to go from Las Vegas to San Francisco and visit the city. After that we like to drive the coastal highway one down to either Los Angeles or San Diego (if the drive from LA to San Diego is nice?).

      Soo... my questions:
      Do you think its a good idea? What should we see visit? How many days do you advice, and where? Any idea how much it will cost? We saw that hotels in LA are around (200-400$/night per room for a double room). Are the other cities similar to that price? What should we definitely do and what definitely avoid? :)

      Thank yo for your answers,
      - Jennifer :)

      Looking for an apartment in or near Santa Cruz, California

      by Beausoleil Online Now May 19, 2011 at 3:51 PM

      Our daughter is looking for an apartment in or near Santa Cruz, California for about 3 months this summer. Ideally, the rent should be less than1200 US dollars a month. (Yes, I realize it's the coast.) She doesn't need a sea view or even to be near the tourist areas; she's working there.

      Any suggestions, especially with web sites or phone numbers, would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.

    • Revisiting Santa Cruz

      by futuremotion Online Now Jul 20, 2009 at 6:30 PM

      I have been to Santa Cruz in the past--a couple months ago actually--and while I really enjoyed myself I want to embark on my next visit a little bit more well-prepared. I'm a photographer, and the current theme I am interested in revolves around capturing lesser-known about / forgotten spaces. I don't specifically know what to describe what I'm looking for beyond "unconventional". If you know of any extremely unique or interesting attractions that gravitate far away from tourism, I'd love to know about them.

      Thanks!

    • A Quick Day Trip

      Hi All,

      Three of us girls have a day to enjoy Santa Cruz on a spontaneous idea. We will be driving down the coast to get there on Hwy 1. We're leaving from just south of San Francisco.
      Anyone have any ideas of must see and do activities? We're driving down today and it is quite windy but we'd like some fun things to do - great shopping, dining, etc. How about on the drive down. We are open to all ideas. We have money and would pay reasonably for great sites, experiences.
      As always, your advise is most welcome.

      cheap or free things to during a daytrip to santa cruz?

      by sheisaeval Online Now Feb 19, 2008 at 11:46 PM

      Well, next month we'll be taking a daytrip from Fremont to Santa Cruz.

      We are looking for free or cheap uniquely Santa Cruz things to do. Some things we are thinking about are the boardwalk, mystery spot, natural bridge state park, saturn cafe. Any other suggestions?


      Also, for the boardwalk and some state parks, is there any free/cheap parking anywhere? Or even a free parking place and then take the bus to the boardwalk/beach? The boardwalk website said parking was10, and that is a bit pricy.

      Massage school(s) in SC

      by dogsky Online Now Dec 4, 2006 at 6:22 AM

      Hello, good people of Santa Cruz,

      I'm considering moving back and going to massage school. The only school I know of is Twin Lakes College, but so far they haven't responded to my emails. Maybe this says something about the school, but it's also possible they have a good reason. I hope someone here knows about the school or has some experience with the massage program there and can share their thoughts. Also, if there's some other massage school I haven't heard about, please let me know! I'm kind of surprised Santa Cruz doesnt have a really well-known massage school, seems like it should.

      Peace~

      Im intrigued by Santa cruz and i have a few questions...

      - What is the weather like year round? Is santa cruz considred the "sunny" area of the region?

      - Is the nightlife entertaining? Santa cruz seems to be so much more interesting that boring silicon valley.

      -What is the dating scene like? Silicon valley can be hell in the dating world from what ive read, but Santa cruz seems to be its own world(and far enough away) and im pretty sure they have an even ratio of males to females, and when i visited there seemed to be plenty of cute girls.
