16 days in Berkeley, California

I'm an 18 year old girl, and i'm going to California for Christmas with my two brothers (they are 22). So, I'm in need of things I/we can do while we're there. My brothers aren't so outgoing so I need things we can do together or that I can do alone. Is there any places we have to go, or something we just have to do?
And is there any chance that I can get in to any nightclubs?

Maui in 10 days for indie 30-somethings

In January I'm going to Maui for my third time with a friend who's never been. We're super thrifty and adventurous though neither surfers nor 20-something hitchhiking backpackers anymore. We want to walk/hike, snorkel, lounge on beaches, and take in the stunning Maui sights but we do NOT care for resorts or shopping or paved walking trails. Looking for "unique", "healthy", "independent" stuff here!

We'll have a rental car (used most likely unless you know of a better deal) and will be looking…

New mexico vs Colorado

So me and my 3 friends are doing a road trip around america next summer after our last year of high school.
Anyways, we're trying to figure out the route and we figured we could use your opinion.

The original plan was to take this route through new mexico, (part of the plan was to visit mexico for a day).

But now we're considering heading up to Colorado, which would add a bit of distance.

Indoor Plumbing, Espresso Coffee, and Other Very Deep Thoughts About America

After two very full and outrageously excellent (exciting) months in North America, I felt I should share some fairly profound ideas with y’all.

Most obviously, the USA is a socialist pinko commie country – and don’t let anyone influential (such as the New York Times opinion pages, or some other liberal rag) try to convince you otherwise.

We have never been so swamped by rules, regulations, and anti-market strictures as we have in the USA. Not sure what caused this – perhaps the Pilgrims…

West coast weather in November

Hi all,

My friend and I have booked the Ultimate Western Explorer tour through Travelsphere. The trip is for two weeks, starting 19th November and we travel to LA, San Diego, Las Vegas, Scottsdale, Flagstaff and San Francisco.

Can anyone tell me what the weather is like that time of year? I've done some research on it and Flagstaff has come up as being around 11C. As it is a coach tour, I want to be sure I take the correct clothes. I've bought shorts and t-shirts but I'm wondering if jeans…
