    Driving from PA to MT, ID and OR, what is the best way to enter Olympic National Park for a three day tour of the park.

    When I went, I approached it from Seattle, via Tacoma driving up towards Port Angeles (there is an entrance in there that connects to a hiking trail that leads to a fab hot spring and camping.) almost 8 years ago

    San Francisco, Las Vegas or Los Angeles?

    I live in the SF Bay Area and while there's plenty to do in the area for that time, as a first timer to the US, I would spread my wings a bit. Are you driving or flying between places? Or it appears you are looking at places to visit within organized tours, no? If you are driving or have leeway, the SF to LA leg makes for a nice 2-day (one overnight) along Highway 1 on the coast (staying in San Luis Obispo, or Cambria or Moro Bay), then hopping from Highway 1 there to 101 through Santa Barbara and to LA. LA is no more expensive that SF. In fact it may even be cheaper in terms of hotels to choose from because of the geographic spread. Farmers Daughter near the Grove is a solid place, Santa Monica/Abbot Kinney area have good options, but don;t overlook downtown LA which s going through a bit of a rebirth of late. I was there a few weeks agi and was amazed at how alive it was; people were actually WALKING around! The usual suspects of reliable but budget hotels are La Quinta, Super 8, Motel 6, Holiday Inn Express,...look at Priceline for a booking or even bidding on a hotel. Can't go wrong either way, really. LA to Vegas is a well trodden route so not too much of a stretch with your time to tack that on (2 nights, unless you do Hoover Dam for a day, in which case 3 nights is plenty). It's worth it just for the kitsch, as well as a hopping off point for checking out Hoover Dam, the desert and yes, in a pinch, The Grand Canyon, but you really need more time for that. If there was an additional spot to add if you had the time, it's San Diego. Just down the road from LA and a nice overnighter. almost 8 years ago

    Any word on when the "spring" bloom might be forecast for in Death Valley?

    The National Park Service has a rough guide for the peak, but it's worth giving them a call for the latest forecast: http://www.nps.gov/deva/naturescience/wildflowers.htm. It has been raining in So Cal, so it could be promising. This site also has some information: http://www.desertusa.com/wildflo/ca.html almost 8 years ago

    Where to eat in Las Vegas?

    My fave is B&B Ristorante Italian (Mario Batali) in the Venetian. For lunch, Babariba is a tapas place originally from Barcelona that puts out decent Spanish food (just across from Aria), almost 8 years ago

    Hi. I would like to stay in a hotel in Toronto in a safe area especially would like peace and quiet. Any suggestions please.

    I have always stayed down town at either the Sheraton, InterContinental or le Meridien. All were safe, and the area was also safe both day and night. When I stayed at Le Meridien I was traveling on business alone and had no issues walking around at night looking for a place for dinner. While down town is 'busy' during the work week, it is actually pretty chill, but lively enough, at night. Yorkville is a very nice and safe area, and while it has loads of cafes and restauants is also peaceful. almost 8 years ago

    Is it safe to drive to Yosemite Village at February-March?

    Yes, it's very safe as long as you follow the highway alerts for any chain requirements.It's been a whacky no-snow season so far, so the Valley floor could be alright or there can be out of the blue snow storms as late as May. It's never the same year to year. Look up the road conditions here:http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/roadinfo/mtnhwys.htm Yosemite roads are the eastern/southern Sierras link, highway 120. If is snowy, try to get four wheel drive from your car rental, or ask them if they have chains. almost 8 years ago
