  • The Zoo's are all the same no...

    by caramba Written Aug 24, 2002

    The Zoo's are all the same no matter where you go. San Francisco, L.A. San Diego. There are the same basic 'zoo animals'. The visit is great if you have little ones or if you're an animal lover to the extreme, cause for the money, it's a hell of a workout, and you've seen 'em all before. Disneyland and Knotts are both extremely crowded and ridiculously priced for what you actually come away with, yet it's an experience to be had at least once. Knotts has much better food available, although Disney has the more famous characters.

  • Solvang, near Santa Barbara....

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Solvang, near Santa Barbara. It labels itself as a 'Danish' community. Although it was settled by Danes, it has become an overcommercialized tourist trap. Nobody speaks Danish there anymore & many of the local businesses have been overrun by factory outlet stores. The museusm are still wonderful though. Especially avoid the town during Danish Days or during cycling races, when the town exceeds capacity.

    The Redwoods are amazing and you gotta see them once and take in all the funny touristy things that go with them. The drive through tree(cool! worth the admission) the treehouse, etc. but don't plan the entire trip around spending days here, unless you just want to kick back and camp, I say keep driving and see Big Sur, or really keep driving and get to San Diego!!(MY FAVORITE!!) The trees are amazing and really, really tall, and kind of eerie but(and don't hang me for this) they're just trees. Sorry!

    Well everycody want to go and see it. They take a picture, like me too, and turn around and leave. You can't take a tour of it... So what's the deal?

    Fun Alternatives: Go visit the Redwood forest instead.
