Spending time at Disneyland Vs Universal Studios

Our family of four is going to California in less than two weeks. Our mission is basically to see Disneyland and Harry Potter World/Universal Studios. We have 2 little girls, one in Kindergarten and the other a Fifth Grader. We have six days to spend between these parks. We are thinking about 4 days at Disney/California Adventure and 2 days at Universal/Harry Potter world. Does this seem like the right allocation of days in these parks? [more inside]

Short Trip to LA: Uber/Lyft or rent a car?

I'll be in LA from about 11am Sun to 9pm Mon. My plan was to crash at one of the airport hotels since I'm only there 1 night. I have a meeting out in the Covina/Duarte area most of the day Monday. Should I rent a car or just do the Uber/Lyft thing? [more inside]

Getting the most out of the Magic Castle

Hola Mefi, Growing up, my Dad was a party clown and stage magician. He wasn't half-bad, either! I have a lot of fond memories of learning little sleights of hand and spoiling the trick at other kid's birthday parties (Sorry.). And while Pops doesn't really do magic anymore, he still loves the theater of it and binges on YouTube shows etc. So, I snagged us an invite to the Magic Castle next time he's in town. Since I've never been: What's it like? Best/worst things to do? Stuff to avoid? [more inside]

Transport options in LA without a car--cabs, Uber or what?

Later this year my daughter (by then 18 yo) and I will be visiting Los Angeles, probably staying somewhere round Santa Monica. We want to do some of the touristy things and will be going on at least the tour to the Hollywood sign. However, hiring a car is not an option. I gather the public transport options aren't great either. That leaves cabs, Uber and Lyft. Given my constraints (see below), convince me which I should use. [more inside]

Los Angeles Parking violations, tips to avoid worst case scenario?

Ok, well I'm not looking for sympathy nor do I need a lecture, (yes, my screename is ironic since I'm in this embarrassing predicament) but it's past time for me to renew my registration at the DMV yearly here in Los Angeles, CA, and after imputing my plates and vin number I was shocked to find out I owe roughly 1500 in unpaid tickets, fees, penalties, etc. [more inside]

Beach Cafes In/Near Los Angeles?

I am still on the hunt for the perfect cafe in or around Los Angeles (preferably with a view of the ocean) where my husband and I can go read our books while sipping coffee. Google shows me lots of expensive beachside restaurants, but that is not what I am after. Outside Los Angeles within a 1-2 hour drive is fine, too.
