Thread: Southern California trip

    Traffic can be heavy around Liberty Station, and you have to drive through a lot of traffic to get to the freeways. The Doubletree at Hazard Center is a nice place, and very convenient to the freeways for getting to the Zoo, beaches, Safari Park, etc. I actually park in the free lot next to it when taking the Trolley downtown (to avoid paying outrageous parking in the downtown area). There are a few places to eat in the shopping mall, or across the street (Frair's Road) in the shopping center there.

    Parking is free in Balboa Park (gardens and museums), although on weekends or holidays not so easy to find. Go early for the best parking spots (this includes the Zoo). There is a $10 charge for parking at the Zoo's Safari Park, but if you go really early (before 7:30AM) you can get in free, take a short nap in your vehicle, and get into the Park as soon as it opens (9AM).

    Of course you need to be sure to bring your own handicapped parking placard. California honors those from other countries and states, generally with no problems.

    I'm not that desperate to save 10 bucks Think we'll just stick to the Zoo, we've only recently returned a weeks safari in South Africa.

    The Safari Park is my favorite over the Zoo. Their species preservation programs are all based there. It is not anything like a safari.
