Talking California

Hi,
I'm going to be going to California in a week (or two) and I'm wondering if there is any place any of you would recommend a tourist check out. We are going to start the trip off in L.A. and end it in Sanfransisco.

T.I.A.,
-Matt

There's always Yosemite Valley, a very touristy place.

San Diego has the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum that's cool. The beach (lots to pick from) is always nice. Long Beach aquarium. LA sucks (crowded, lots of crime and dirty). I guess they have lots of amusment parks, Disney land , ect. Lots of nice places to camp in central CA. Alcatraz in San Francisco. If you're taking your Jeep. Holister Hills ORV park in Holister and you can drive the sand dunes on the beach at Pismo Beach.

This is assuming you are gonna be driving.

Starting in L.A Theree's the usual Disneyland/Knott's/ universal studios. You can also go look at the freaks on Hollwood blvd, check out gramans chineese theater, and more freaks and tweekers.

Heading north, and believe me you will want to after seeing all the freaks and tweekers, stop in Solvang, it's a little slice of Sweedish heaven! Continuing on, pull off in pismo, take a drive on the beach, that's right...on the beach! Get ya some clam chowder, or tri tip at Brads.

Further north i would reccomend stopping in Morro bay, see the huge rock, and take a submarine tour of the bay, or kayaks if you're so inclined. While in that area, head up to Hearst castle, muy bonita, and mucho dinero to build that place!

Continuing on you have to stop in at monterey, cruise cannery row, and check out the aqaurium, it is awesome! Be sure to go a little out of your way to Santa Cruz and hit the boardwalk, it's a little bit of coney island on the central coast!

Finnishing off in San Fran, there is fishermans warf, pier 39 the worlds steepest, windiest, twistiest street,(i don't remember the name, sorry) And let's not forget all the fellas, freaks and tweekers that the gay bay has to offer!

I hope this helps, have a heck of a trip! And please, take a tweeker home with ya, we have plenty!

Nothing can beat a Roberto's carne asada burrito and three rolled taco's with guacamole.

One of the few things I miss about california is real Mexican food.
We finally got an authentic Mexican cafe here but they don't have guac or fresh salsa, I have to make my own

Skeeter, there's such good mexican food in SoCal and AZ because we have SOOOOOOO MANY real mexicans.

Hell here in Phoenix even Taco Bell is authentic mexican.

I still say King Taco kicks Roberto's butt.

Towstrap mentioned some of my favorite places to go (minus the tweeker and freak places). And yes, please take a tweaker home with you. They make great pets. They will install a new stereo, build a new bike from spare parts and turn your washing machine into a microwave, all while you sleep. Just hide your money and anything of value. Good luck.

Since you're from Florida, the beaches & Disney won't be any big deal.

Yosemite and the vacinity is special.

Hearst Castle is cool, and the rocky coast near there is great.

Monterrey Bay Aquarium is awesome.

Doing the touristy things in L.A. are good for a day or 2 - seeing the hand & footprints at the Gramans Chinese Theater & walking down Hollywood Blvd. & or Sunset, seeing the stars in the sidewalk, Rodeo Drive.
I don't know if the Mexican food will be all that special compared to the Puerto Rican/Cuban fare in Miami area (kinda the same?).

Get some chowder or soup in a sourdough bread "bowl" in San Francisco, along the wharf/pier area. Alcatraz - go see/ tour.

If you have never seen Yosemite you will be impressed with the view of it all. The Japanese can't get enough of it.
