Is it safe to live in Alamitos between Orange avenue and Cherry street, south of Broadway? I am trying to find a place to live and I was just wondering if this area is safe to live in. I have heard conflicting information on the area and would like to know from someone who lives in Long Beach and knows the area. Thank you!
Hi, mid September this year we are hiring a car in Las Vegas and planning to drive through Death Valley via Pahrump, to Lone Pine. Would this be a good overnight enroute to Yosemite? We then plan to drive the Tioga Pass (HWY 120) to get to Yosemite the following day. Is this Do-able in September or will there be a chance the road will be closed due to snow? We will just have a normal car. TIA
Traveling to San Francisco late August 2016. I'm bringing a friend with bad foot injury and also having my 2 year old with me. I am trying to look for a company in SFO that rents or possibly loans out: a baby car seat, strollers and crutches. items must be in great clean condition..Also, being delivered or pickup nearby the airport would be amazing since we don't know S.F all that much. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know I'm asking a lot but taking and bringing these items on the airplane is just a bit of a headache.
Hey everyone. I'm a 32 year old male from Canada. I'm going to travel the Pacific Coast this summer by myself in my car. I've never done a solo trip and I'm finding it exciting and scary all at the same time.
My first leg is going to be to rush down to LA and stay there a week. I've gone back and forth on a couple hostels and I found one that doesn't seem like a party hostel and looks like a great value. It's in Jefferson Park and it's called The Anderson Estates. The hostel is at 1932 Rochester Cir, Los Angeles, CA 90018. I've reached out online to people who have stayed there and I hear great things and they say that the neighbourhood was kinda sketchy but they all seemed to travel by transit from there without issues.
I'm hearing mixed messages when I research this. One person from LA will say "NEVER EVER go into Jefferson Park unless you want to be stabbed 100 times a minute and it will happen 100% of the time so don't even think about leaving your hotel while here!" Then the next post will say "Don't listen to that nut, South Central LA is a lot better these days and as long as you are driving and not walking around after dark, you are fine."
Who do I believe? If anyone has an opinion on this, I would love to hear it. I would also love to hear a little about why you feel that way. I find that "help" that just tries to scare you or put you at ease without facts is empty. Is there anyone from LA that has actually been around this part of LA and can actually tell me about it? Does it seem 70% safe or 30%? Am I safe at this hostel in JP considering that I'll be going out at night only a few times in the week to see a comedy show but that I'll be in my car driving straight back to the hostel (going to Largo or UCB theatres only and going straight back to the hostel). Any thoughts, Angelenos?
So I'm currently looking to plan my family's first trip to California. There will be myself my husband and son who's 6. The plan was to stay in Anaheim, visit Disney 2 days a few days at the beach then spend a week travelling to national parks.
The plan was to go up to Yosemite onto sequoia then Joshua trees before heading back to the airport.
My question is. Will the national parks be accessible enough in April? (Np dates 14th to 20th).?
The reason im looking at April is because the flight total is £2000 less and it's the only school holiday that has 2 weeks other than Xmas and summer.
But if there's not enough to do and enjoy in April should I save up and wait until summer 2018?
I've read so much on the Internet and feel I really need to ask someone who knows.
Staying in a hotel for a few nights in the Thai town/little Armenia area called Americas best value inn.
Looking for a bit of info on the area really. I know it's not far from the metro station (10 min walk if I'm correct) which is ideal for getting to touristy destinations I plan to go. I'm not hiring a car so will be dependant on public transport and uber. Is there anything around the area I am that's worth checking out and in general is it a relatively safe place to be based for my trip?
Any and all info is greatly appreciated
We are staying at June Lake and next day stay is booked at Merced. It is for coming weekend. Between this, we want to see few points in Yosemite, as much as we can comfortably. We are travelling with elder parents, who will not be interested in hikes and long walks, so most of the time, it would be stop, see, click pictures, come back to car and go for next spot. I am reading idea on TA and came up with below sequence. Please fix/comment on its order or feasibility, if you feel it can be better planned.
- Start from June Lake around 9 AM
- Tuolumne Meadows
- Tenaya Lake
- Olmsted Point
- El Capitan Meadow
- Yosemite Falls
- Cook's Meadow Loop
- Curry Village
- Bridalveil Falls
- Tunnel View
- Glacier Point
- Back to Merced via Mariposa
While coming back from Glacier Point, do I need to backtrack all the way back till Bridalveil Falls and then take El Portal road to Merced ? Or I need to take some other road, I couldn't find on Google map.
Being less water in Yosemite Fall, is it still worth to stop there ?
