    Is The Jersey Shore Up And Running? Me and my friends want to take a road trip to Jersey Shore. I’ve tried contacting some hotels in “seaside heights” but everywhere I try to call gives me the “disconnected” answering machine. Not just hotels, but clubs, and restaurants. Before we take a hike down there… because it’s a good 10 hour drive… does anyone know if The Shore is recovered from Sandy? I figure there’s no sense driving down if there will be nothing to do.

    Thanks!

  • Trip To LA And Las Vegas? I am planning to travel LA and Las Vegas in next month. I will be staying there for 4 days (3 nights). I need suggestions on what attractions I should plan and how much time should I keep for every attraction. Considering 4 days can you guys list how you would have planned our trip?

    • Curator says:

      Wow. That’s a very short time, and a long way to go. A weekend in Vegas is a pretty short time, I think, so trying to fit LA & Vegas into one 4-day trip is going to miss a lot.

      If you are driving to LA, you should stop in Vegas for about 3-4 hours, take in a casino, then move on. If you’re flying into LA, I don’t think it’s worth it to try to drive to Vegas. It’s 300 miles away, and takes 4-8 hours each way, depending on traffic.

      In LA:
      1 day Disneyland. A weekday, preferably.
      1 day Hollywood: Universal Studios, then some time at Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theater, etc.
      1 day at a beach. Huntington and Newport are my favs. Santa Monica is the closest.
      1 misc day from the list below:

      Olvera Street/Union Station: Olvera Street is the birthplace of LA, and it emphasizes our Mexican heritage. In addition to the Avila Adobe (oldest building in LA), you can eat at some pretty good Mexican Restaurants, do a little shopping, and taste a churro.

      Rodeo Drive, 90210: Packed with exclusive shops, full of gawkers. They all came to enjoy the excess. Free, unless you intend to buy something.

      Venice Beach: Here you’ll find Muscle Beach, street performers and tacky shops galore. Fun, VERY interesting, but I avoid it after dark, when it gets a little TOO interesting for my taste.

      Santa Monica: Beach and Pier: Great beach scene and a classic seaside amusement park, complete with antique carousel that has been in a lot of TV and movies. After visiting the pier, you can ride a bike south a couple miles to Venice Beach.

      Sunset Boulevard began as a route between the stars’ posh neighborhoods and the Hollywood studios. It runs from downtown to the ocean, passing through the “Sunset Strip” on its way.

      Farmers Market and The Grove – A new shopping complex right next to a Los Angeles landmark, It is right next to CBS. They are currently shooting “Extra” here, M-F 9:00-2:00, so stop by and you might see a celebrity.

      Griffith Park – Home of the Los Angeles Zoo, Griffith Park Observatory, Travel Town, the Greek Theatre, and Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage.

      Getty Museum – The Getty’s architecture is so beautiful that it keeps me fascinated. No matter whether you like their art, architecture, or view better, the Getty is sure to please. Free.

      Attend a TV taping – You can get free tickets at audiencesunlimited.com, tvtix.com, or see the booth at Universal City walk. It’s very interesting to see a show being taped. The most popular, by far, is the Tonight show.

      Places to eat:
      In-N-Out Burger: Multiple locations, best burger in LA, ask anyone.
      Pink’s Hot Dogs: 709 N. La Brea, just north of Melrose. You might even see a celebrity. Maybe.
      Tommy’s Chili Burgers: Look for the shack, an LA tradition. The original location is at Beverly & Rampart, a couple miles west of downtown.
      Canter’s Deli: 419 N. Fairfax, between Beverly & Melrose. Near CBS, you might spot a celebrity.
      Phillippe’s: 1001 N. Alameda. Great roast beef sandwiches. Near Union Station and Olvera Street.
      Tito’s Taco’s: Voted best tacos in LA, even though it’s in Culver City. King Taco is a good alternate if you can deal with East LA.
      The Pantry: Corner of Figueroa and 9th, downtown. Huge portions, they never close, GREAT steak and eggs.
      Medieval Times and/or Pirate’s Dinner Adventure: Dinner and an adventure show, both are on Beach Blvd in Buena Park, you get to eat with your hands.

      Places to Stay:
      Since LA is so spread out, there is no single place that is close to EVERYTHING. Most people who come here tend to stay in Hollywood, Santa Monica, or Anaheim. In Hollywood, I recommend the Orchid Suites, Hollywood Celebrity Hotel, or Hollywood Heights (formerly Holiday Inn Walk of Fame), all near Hollywood and Highland. In Santa Monica, the Holiday Inn Santa Monica is close to the pier and reasonably priced. In Anaheim, I recommend the Howard Johnson (HoJo) Anaheim, and the Candy Cane Inn. There is also a nice place in Burbank called the Best Western Media Center, very close to Warner, NBC, and Universal Studios.

      Places to Shop:
      Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica
      The Grove, Los Angeles
      Americana @ Brand, Glendale
      Beverly Center, Los Angeles
      Citadel Outlets, Commerce
      Brea Mall, Brea
      The Block at Orange, Orange
      South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa
      Fashion Island, Newport Beach
      Santee Alley, Los Angeles

    Ideas For The Best California Vacation For 8 Days. Landing/leaving From LAX…? We are going to California in a few months. We will be landing and leaving from LAX. We’re most interested in visiting Hollywood, Yosemite, Palm Springs and Joshua Tree area. Any tips or suggestions about how to best utilize our time while hitting these spots is welcome. Thanks.
    7/18/13:

    Yosemite is a must, as are Joshua Tree & the Palm Springs (Salton Sea) area…We’re not the “touristy” types and do not really do theme park type activities. I do appreciate ALL of the hotel and restaurant recs, thanks for that! My hubby is a big movie buff and we planned for a full day (first day, our flight lands at 8:30 a.m.!) in the LA/Hollywood area…So much to do and so little time!

    • Curator says:

      Sorry, but that’s a bit too much for 8 days. It will take you a full day to drive to Yosemite, and a full day back. My suggestion is to drop in from the itinerary, even though it is fully awesome.

      Hollywood and Universal Studios are a lot of fun. You can spend a couple days checking those out.
      What about Disneyland? Even a day at Downtown Disney is fun if you don’t want to go to the parks.
      Coming during the holidays? Disneyland is beautifully decorated.
      If you’re coming close to Christmas or New Years, check out the preparations for the Rose Parade.
      There are many museums in LA: MOCA, LACMA, the Getty, the Peterson Automotive Museum, the Air & Space Museum (which has an actual space shuttle), and more.
      If you’re going to the desert in winter, Palms Springs and Joshua Tree can be very cold at night. Joshua Tree can even get a dusting of snow in winter.
      Since you’re heading east, you might want to visit Las Vegas for a day or two.

      Hollywood: Enjoy the Walk of Fame, Entertainment Museum, Chinese Theatre and more. The Hollywood & Highland complex has lots of shops and restaurants, and the Kodak Theater. The El Capitan theater, right across the street, is where Disney shows their movies.

      Olvera Street/Union Station: Olvera Street is the birthplace of LA, and it emphasizes our Mexican heritage. In addition to the Avila Adobe (oldest building in LA), you can eat at some pretty good Mexican Restaurants, do a little shopping, and taste a churro.
