Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I have always fancied San Diego (I don't know why) and this is one of the options. What is the weather likely to be like at that time of year?
This will be a driving holiday so some places we may consider visiting include Baja California and/or Mexico, LA, Las Vegas and I don't know, perhaps Arizon, El Paso or whatever? Any suggestions?
In short lots to do and lots to see. PM me if decide to come and maybe we can
get together. I will buy lunch(anything up to $1.99)...KF
Las Vegas should be nice around that time, but cooling off after the summer heat. But if you've just turned 21, you probably won't be spending much time outside the casinos anyway. Other than walking to another casino. At least that's the way I was when i went on my 21st b-day.
there are some great national parks to visit such as the grand canyon and joshua tree.
if you go to arizona, check out sedona.
you should leave a week earlier and spend it in vegas for pubcon!
Typically warm to hot days and warm to cool evenings. Shorts, casual shirt, sandals during the day. Same thing and a sweater or light jacket at night. It's a pretty casual environment in most coastal areas.
may have to carry a bucket down to the local well for drinking water. < Kidding.
Oh wait, I live in Ventura County now- we don't do that here. :)
You can also cut corners and stay in town at the Paso Robles Inn right on the square. Some of the rooms have hot tubs. I found the locals of Paso Robles to be warm and welcoming. A very pleasant few days that I'll always fondly remember. Tablas Creek Winery [pasowine.com] is out there. Tablas was founded by the Perrin family from France. Their wines are quite tasty.
There's also the Santa Barbara Wine Country, too. I think Sideways was filmed in that area.
Las Vegas is fine if you've never been there before. Like a disneyland for adults. It's eye-popping.
I'm not a fan of San Diego, it's a bit of a sprawl. On some stretches you can drive and drive and drive and not see a soul on the sidewalk. I found it depressing, but maybe I wasn't in the "right" place.
