Do Some Planning About Your Choice of Lodging When Going To See Vacation Attractions In Southern California

An Amtrak  vacation is something you might consider for your next vacation, particularly if that is something you’ve never tried before. Many North American destination cities are easily accessible by train. Getting there can be half the fun on some of the more scenic routes.

Of all the many great vacation destinations accessible by train, San Diego is in the top echelon.  The train runs into the depot not far from downtown, with easy local public transportation available to take you to your choice of many San Diego hotels, and most of the attractions.  San Diego is distributed across a smaller geographical area than other parts of SoCal, notably Los Angeles. In fact, a lot of the attractions can be experienced as a pedestrian.

What if your vacation strategy includes a search for exciting roller coasters?  The two parks that come to mind when speaking of roller coasters are Six Flags Magic Mountain and Knott’s Berry Farm The SoCal Guru  notes that these two destinations have focused directly on roller coasters and thrill rides to differentiate themselves from Disneyland.

You won’t find any place with more edgy thrill rides and coasters than Six Flags Magic Mountain. Of course some in your group may not be roller coaster fanatics, and there are many other rides and activities to be enjoyed, as you can learn at the SoCal Guru website.

Knott’s Berry Farm also has really focused on thrill rides, although they offer Camp Snoopy, Ghost Town and many other fun attractions and themed areas within the park. We have talked to employees who can confirm that several of the roller coasters at Knott’s will push you to the limit of comfort.

The first place we think of is Disneyland, the hangout for Mickey, Donald and all their buddies. For great local insight and tips for planning a Disneyland vacation, the SoCal Vacation Guru is the site for you, with great insight into Knott’s Berry Farm hotels. Who doesn’t love the wonderful job Disney has done in creating a fictional universe of lovable characters?

Your next stop would be Universal Studios Hollywood and the many TV and movie stars such as Betty Boop, the Hulk, Batman and Spiderman, joined most recently by Homer Simpson and his wonderful family. Pick up some useful information and tips about Universal Studios and other southern California hotels from the SoCal Vacation Guru.

It doesn’t matter how you plan to spend your vacation, it is of great importance to find the right hotel.  You will spend way more time than you expected traveling around Southern California if you goof up the selection of your hotel.  Who wants to waste precious vacation time on needless driving?
