    • Coronado Ferry to mainland for touring?

      San Diego Dec 23, 2016 at 12:17 PM

      Two young seniors spending 4 days in San Diego in February and staying on Coronado. Will have a car. Is it advisable to take the ferry back and forth to see (walk/ taxi) some of the mainland sites? Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, perhaps, Balboa Park (Zoo), etc.? How about if we want dinner on the mainland? Or should we drive to most places? Itinerary not set yet.

    • Specific Location

      Los Angeles Jan 6, 2017 at 6:48 AM

      Hi. I posted another question about where to stay but am now more specific with areas. We will be going to Universal one day, Warner Brothers tour, doing things near Hollywood Blvd area, and then exploring other tourist things.

      Which area/hotel is better...near Universal City (Studio City hotel) or Hollywood Blvd (Hollywood Celebrity hotel), near but off Hollywood Blvd a bit (Days Inn) or Thai Town (Dixie Hotel)? We will have a car but am thinking one of those.
      Have narrowed it down to one of those based on budget and not being too far from Universal and Hollywood Blvd area. We have Hollywood Celebrity booked (but we can cancel).

    • Where to Stay?

      Los Angeles Jan 2, 2017 at 5:45 AM

      We'll be coming to Los Angeles in the summer with our kids and will have 4 days to do touristy things (Hollywood walk of fame and Hollywood Blvd area, Universal Studios, Warner Brother's Tour, Santa Monica Pier, La Brae Tar Pits, etc).

      I'm having trouble deciding on a hotel. We are on a budget since we'll need to keep money for LA plus 4 days at Disney. Anyone stayed at Days Inn near Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood Celebrity, Comfort Inn...or hotels in Thai Town such as Dixie Hotel, Hollywood City Inn? We will most likely be renting a car for our LA days.

    • Day trip from LA to Joshua Tree?

      Los Angeles Jan 4, 2017 at 1:48 PM

      Young senior couple staying in Santa Monica with a car for 10 days in late February and thinking of a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park. Is that feasible? And if so, can I add a stop in Palm Springs to the day trip?

      Using the Parkmobile App in Lot 4 Sausalito

      by travelgarfield Online Now Jun 5, 2016 at 9:49 AM

      I keep researching about the parking near the ferry terminal. In Lot 4 it seems there's only one spot numbered Zone 924 where u can use this Parkmobile App to pay for parking with a 35 cents fee. But it also states you can pay 3 days in advance according to the website but according to the Parkmobile website you actually have to be physically present then initiate the start of your parking session time. Has anyone used this Parkmobile app payment feature or parked at the Sausalito Ferry Terminal Lot 4 that can tell me if there is plenty of parking for visitors. I don't understand if this Parkmobile is so the "in" thing why they would only have one stall for it in Lot 4. It would be so convenient for all the spots to be marked this way!

      Parking in Sausalito by the Ferry Terminal

      by travelgarfield Online Now Jun 5, 2016 at 5:24 AM

      How early should we get there to park in Sausalito near the Ferry Terminal? After reading, I found that you can pay 5$ for all day fee in what is called Lot #4 near The Taste of Rome & Bay St. Which means absolutely nothing to me so if someone has better directions to show me on google maps I'd much appreciate it. Also, I hope this information is correct. We are planning to take the Sausalito ferry to the San Francisco Ferry Building on the first boat at 7:10am. From there we have plans to go on the Alcatraz tour at 9:30am. I need to know how early do we need to get to the Sausalito Ferry parking to get a spot so we can get on the ferry & not miss our tour. I did read there are a lot of reserved spots in lot 4 and that you can pay 25$ for lot 3 & 2. We will be going on the ferry on a Wednesday in August. Thanks in advance

      What to do in Marin County?

      by we135b Online Now Aug 8, 2008 at 12:50 PM

      My wife and I will be in Marin county for a day. We like the outdoors as well as shopping/dining. Any recommendations as the "must see" areas. The coast looks interesting but what is the best part? Is Sausalito worth the visit?

    • Sausalito

      by cawfeeguy Online Now Jun 20, 2006 at 8:11 AM

      If we take a ferry into San Francisco for an evening tour of Alcatraz, what do you suggest we do to get back into Sausalito if the last scheduled ferry has already departed? Taxi?

    • looking for restaurant in Sausalito

      by michellewood Online Now Jan 19, 2006 at 1:18 PM

      I ate at a little place for breakfast a number of years ago in Sausalito.
      They had the most unbelievable blueberry pancakes and a huge delicious breakfast. It was on the main road coming into Sausalito...if I remember correctly. We're going back with friends and I'd love to impress them with that delicious breakfast.
      I appreciate any help from a "local".
