More California Questions

Saturday, March 15, 2003 4:12 PM
Hey all -

Once again, trying to plan out this trip for the Summer for myself to Cali, and want a local opinion on this idea I have ... I arrive May 29th, I want to stay in LA (SFMM and KBF) until the 1st. At that point, I want to drive to PGA, stay around there, the next day drive to SFMW, the day after drive back to LA and possibly hit up MM, KBF or Disney my last day.

I'm a pretty resiliant driver still, I can withstand 5 and 6 hour drives no problem, but I want to know if locals think its possible on a Sunday to drive from LA to PGA (not really sure where in CA PGA is located?) in one day, or is that drive rather rough that once I get to PGA I won't really want to hit the park? Any suggestions for modifying my trip? I'm just trying to hit up as many coasters as possible on this trip. Thanks for your help guys! (and gals!)

6 hours between SFMM and Santa Clara, where PGA is.

You know, what you MAY want to do...

It may be a bit more expensive, but you may want to take United's Shuttle (which runs about every half an hour to an hour) from LAX to SFO. Maybe get a taxi to and from your hotel?

Those shuttles are very inexpensive, take about a half an hour to an hour, and may actually be more time effective than driving, even when airport time is added.

Well I need the car anyway to get to the parks from the hotel I picked, and the whole reason I'm making the trip is my airfare is free (got bumped on a USAir flight) but I'll think about it. Thanks for the idea.

You can gun it on Highway 5, and get from San Jose to LA and vice versa in a little less than 6 hours. There are few cops on that road (not that I advocate speeding). Bay Area locals take weekend trips down to LA all the time.

I've gotten to L.A. from the Bay Area in less than 6 hours before, so it's possible. From SFMM area, PGA would be around 5 to 5 1/2 hours or so. From my home in the East Bay, it takes me about that to get to L.A., and I'm about 45 minutes north of PGA. So there you have it. I wouldn't suggest it, but if you left early enough, you could easily make it up to PGA and have ample enough time to enjoy the park.
