    • 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.

    • Vacation home in Tahoe City?

      by emmabizzybee Online Now Nov 24, 2015 at 8:35 AM


      I'm considering buying a vacation home in Tahoe City having visited several times over the past few years.

      My concern is the price of property there is high and I'm worried if I wanted to sell in 5-10 years time would I at least get my money back.

      If you live there yourself or have any information on this it would be greatly appreciated!

    • Truckee or North Tahoe

      by cavangal Online Now May 28, 2014 at 5:30 PM

      Will arrive on Amtrak into Truckee end of August. I need to have access to public transportation to do some sightseeing, enjoy some hikes and walking to scenic areas around Lake. If I look for hotel in Truckee will this be good choice or should I get hotel in Tahoe City to be closer to Lake and enjoy scenic views of mountains. Have only been to Lake Tahoe on day trip years ago and hope to stay 3 nights this trip. Am not familiar with the TART shuttle or buses and would like to be sure there is service after Labor Day and if they operate from early morning and evenings in event I stay in Truckee. Not sure of the distance but want to void having to ride in taxis. Also need to stay in area walking distance to restaurants. Thanks for any help available.

      Hotels in North Lake Tahoe

      by cmcarney Online Now Apr 20, 2008 at 3:14 PM

      We have a conference at Granlibakken (way overpriced) so we are looking for a hotel in the area of Tahoe City. The current ones on the list are Americas Best Value Inn, Ferrari's Crown Resort, and Best Western (Truckee). Does anyone have any experience with these hotels or the safety of the various areas.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Wine Country in Tahoe Area

      by CarlsonsontheGo Online Now Jun 16, 2004 at 5:40 PM

      Our family (2 pre-teens, 2 teens + 2 adults) is looking forward to our upcoming one-week vacation starting next week in N. Lake Tahoe (King's Beach). My husband & I would love to spend a sightseeing day visiting some nearby wineries - too far to drive to Napa/Sonoma, etc. What locations/wineries w/i a 2 hour drive of Tahoe could you recommend please? Also, I'm sure I read somewhere that river tubing is available in the area - the boys want to whitewater raft, the girls are fearful of the idea. Any suggestions for a one-stop location that will appeal to all fear factor levels??? Thanks, Flatlanders from Florida
