It's a beautiful city, nice people and a very comfortable place to live. I miss it.
I've heard things aren't what they used to be... whatever that means.
It's an OK place to visit, but a better place to live.
The mission was restored during the 1980's. It is still used as a church today right next to St. Joseph's Catholic church. It is part of early Californian History before statehood and there are artifacts dating back to the times of when the land of what is today California was governed by Spain.Spanish, Mission founders, and other settlers are...more
Mission Peak is known to many as probably one of the most underated peaks in the San Francisco Bay Area. On a clear day, from the top, you can see the coast, Mount Diablo, San Jose, and so much more. It is neat to be able to see the East Bay and even the South Bay from this vantage point. The hike is a strenuous climb at times, so it would be wise...more
Fremont's Central Park is not grand by any means, but it is a nice little getaway. No park would be complete without a playground and Central Park has 4. There are three smaller ones and one really big playground. During week days, children have their pick of playground activities, while the weekend is a little more crowded. There is a lot of...more
This is an awesome BBQ place that we used to get food from all the time when I was a child. Small restaurant, this place is mainly about take-out orders, but you can also eat there. My favorite dish is definitely the Barbecue Beef Links. The seasonings are excellent, and the dishes are available in varying levels of spiciness. Don't miss the...more
i just love this place because whenever i'm there, that means my dad is paying for the food and i can eat like the little piggy that i am.the atmosphere is typically silicon valley-ish: young to middle-aged yuppies who drive beamers and talk about crap i don't care to understand. Oh my God. I have to pick one? There's always the Pad Thai =...more
My students and I chartered a Shuttle Bus to get from YMCA Camp back to my parents house. It was convenient and reasonably priced. The best part is I didn't have to drive.Shuttles will pick you up and take you almost anywhere you want to go in their service area.It's important to make reservations for this kind of service about a month in advance....more
BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) can be used to get from Fremont to a variety of other cities throughout the Bay Area. So using BART you can go to San Francisco, Berkeley, San Ramon, Oakland, Dublin, etc.The fair is reasonable. It costs about $5.00 to get to San Francisco (depending on where in S.F. you get off) from Fremont.Check the webpage below...more
The whole Bay Area is serviced by the BART and it is very good. it costs $4.10 to get from fremont into downtown san francisco. when you travel underwater across the bay your ears snap crackle n pop and the train makes these sort of 'sounds from hell'. everyone in fremont drives. you could bike around though since it's very flat but probably only...more
Absolutely don't leave anything of value inside of your car in plain site. Doing so is just inviting someone to break in and steal it.
I had my car broken into twice and the stereo was stolen both times.
A friend of mine left her purse in her car late at night. The window was broken and it was stolen, too.
Getting to the top takes about 2 hours on average. The view is great allowing you to see across the Bay for a good distance. The ride down is a rush and will be over in 10 to 15 minutes.
Equipment: It's best to have a good mountain bike and to make sure your brakes are working properly.
A helmet is a smart thing to have and now I believe it's required by law. Keep in mind that you have to watch out for hikers coming up the mountain as you're going down it.
GO TO TACO BELL. cheap, good, fast... californian life at its best. find a taco bell with seating outside and sink your teeth into a cheesy gordita or santa fe chicken chalupa. mmmm i'm salivating heavily.
Fondest memory: gorditas = soft thick shell with beef/chicken, cheese chalupas = soft thick deep fried shell (yum!) with beef/chicken, cheese, the usual
you get to choose between 3 styles: supreme, baja, or santa fe
ALL VERY GOOD
