Keep your stuff in the car trunk. You would need a car to get around the island anyway. About $30 a day for an econo car plus gas of course. Hell, just travel around the island, camp out to save $$$. I have always wanted to camp over there, seems like it would be nice to do. Of course, I would stick to public campgrounds and not go off into the wild. Carp could surely provide more info on that aspect of it. <br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Seattle=rainy, LA=traffic and smog, Honolulu=paradise. No brainer. <p><hr></blockquote><p><br>In reality:<br>Seattle = Doesn't rain nearly as much as people think or say, and is quite beautiful.<br><br>L.A. = Is as miserable as everyone thinks and says, and more!<br><br>Honolulu = Is the only place in the US that is worse than LA. It looks and smells like LA, only there isn't nearly as much to do and everything costs 150% more! Please!!! Honolulu is the one place in Hawaii that EVERYONE should go out of their way to AVOID! I'm sure Carp can give you a list as long as his arm of better places to go other than Honolulu.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

I forgot, June. Northern California is the place, weather-wise and scenery-wise. If you use SF as your base, you can see some spectacular stuff. Every time I go to SF, I have a great time and never run out of things to do or places to go.<br>If your are on a limited budget and just want to "hang out," there is so much to see around there without spending money. The public transportation is good and you can walk from downtown through Chinatown, up to North Beach and over to Fisherman's Wharf and have a grand time. Then you can strike out to the parks and other sites and attractions.<br>What do you like to do? Some people like to visit sites, some like to shop, some like to hang out and some like to play golf. If sightseeing is your bag, Northern Calif is the best. It can get a little pricey, though.<br>Go to a travel agent and let them do a profile on you. Who knows, they may tell you to stay home. (just kidding)<br><br>
i started off near LA and visited quite often over the year. i have relatives in san diego and visit there every now and then, too. i wouldn't have either place on my list if i were you.<br><br>i love seattle...love it. that's the place to be (imho). although, i don't see you hanging out on capital hill. <br>you know what would be really nice? go to seattle and then take a few days to head over to victoria island or vancouver. that's a nice little jaunt to a different world. and, go on a whale watching tour.<br><br>the job i held before i started teaching here in michigan had me traveling to northern california a lot and that was generally an enjoyable experience. i had bunches of fun in the monterey and santa cruz areas. but, i'd choose seattle in a heartbeat over your other choices. something about the extra gazillion-hour plane ride over the ocean to hawaii is a turn-off to me. <br><br>good luck choosing. <br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
it's a hip/trendy hangout with a lot of coffee shops -- it's also considered a gay hangout. <br><br><a href="http://www.popularspot.com/ps/capitolhilldistrict/capitolhilldistrict.html">here's a tour of the area (CLICK)<a/>.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
Actually, the section of town I live in has a high percentage of gays and it's not bad. It's not like I base my friends or where I live on what sexual orientation someone is. Granted I think it's sick, but that's their thing, not mine.<br><br>
