I found the according file at Safeway (grocery store) in the stationery stuff. It's supposed to be used as a coupon holder/file.

Have you ever been to Angels Stadium? I would like to see rennovated Chavez ravine or Angels Stadium, but the Dodgers are in town when I'm at Disneyland and the Angels are in town when I'm in Hollywood. Which makes travel without a car to the game hard?

No, we've never been to an Angel's game.....but we've been to a Dodger's game in 2005!! We usually drive, so we have a car to get around.....I'm not sure how you would get to a game with out one......

I'm enjoying seeing all of your plans.

I am planning a similar trip for February 2015. (Though, circumstances have me reconsidering timing or splitting into two trips.)
My boys will be 5 and 7 when we go. We would be driving from the Seattle area and taking 3-5 days to drive down. I was originally planning to do some stuff in San Francisco, but I've found so much in LA and San Diego that we might have to skip San Francisco. The stuff you are planning makes me want to reconsider my original plan. Too. much. to. do!

The San Francisco & Hollywood area gets expensive. Motels are much higher here & parking can be a real nightmare....so consider that before changing your plans.

We're excited to be going down to San Diego this time....just wish I had one more day.....but unfortunately, the timing isn't right.

Are you planning on coming down I-5 or down the coast line thru Oregon?

Good to know about the lodging prices. I haven't gotten far enough to start pricing that stuff out yet.

My preference is to go down the coast, but DH and I both deal with motion sickness. And it looks like YoYo might too. So, it might not be our wisest option.
I'm currently thinking of I-5 until we get to San Francisco and the go down the coast to miss the really awful parts of I-5.

One thing with the parking a lot of the tourist locations like Pier 39 give you a discount if you get your ticket validated. Beware of the parking meters though because they'll gouge you.

If you go down I-5, cut across to SF so you can stop in Fairfield and visit the Jelly Belly Factory!! We've done this a few times & in fact, kaoden (below) and I got to meet in person there....since she lives in Fairfield!!

We're staying in the Presidio area and will either take a long hike to the Pier or take a bus. Not gonna try to find parking down at the pier. Besides our motel has "limited" spaces.....so if we get a spot in the lot (which is free parking...shocker!!)....then we're gonna keep it!!
