  • Safety and general info of Salinas, California?

    I'm planning on moving to this area in a few months, but many reviews I have read only talk about gang violence and cars getting broken into.

    I'm planning on moving to this area in a few months, but many reviews I have read only talk about gang violence and cars getting broken into. I have a brand new car so am pretty concerned about that. There are apartments in Monterey and other surrounding areas, but they are a bit out of my price range, so Salinas may be my only option. Has anyone lived there or visited for an extended period of time that can let me know how safe this city is?

  • What would people do in small California towns, or small towns in general?

    What would people do in remote small towns, especially those under 3,000 people, and are probably an hour or more away from a large city, if not 3+ hours. There's a town called Dos Rios, CA, which is 3 hours from SF and 2 hours from Santa Rosa, located in Mendocino County. It has 70 people and is 30 minutes... show more
    What would people do in remote small towns, especially those under 3,000 people, and are probably an hour or more away from a large city, if not 3+ hours. There's a town called Dos Rios, CA, which is 3 hours from SF and 2 hours from Santa Rosa, located in Mendocino County. It has 70 people and is 30 minutes from the nearest store, gas station, or school. What would people do in really small towns like that? When I talked about it with a few people, they assumed they're on crack or meth, or drunk a lot or stoned. Others say they're into country stuff like fishing, canoeing, and hiking. Others say they're hippies. What would life be like in those small towns?

  • Why is the Golden Gate Bridge so popular but no one cares about the bay bridge?

    Best answer: The two bridges were completed within one year of another. Yet, the Golden Gate, which links the Pacific Ocean with SF Bay, is special contrasted to the Oakland Bay Bridge, which despite being longer (in two segments) only crosses the SF Bay. In addition, the setting (environment) of the GG Bridge is spectacular,... show more
    Best answer: The two bridges were completed within one year of another. Yet, the Golden Gate, which links the Pacific Ocean with SF Bay, is special contrasted to the Oakland Bay Bridge, which despite being longer (in two segments) only crosses the SF Bay. In addition, the setting (environment) of the GG Bridge is spectacular, spanning bodies of land that have great natural appeal and it was, and remains, an engineering marvel. Also, the GG Bridge has earned a reputation of symbol of SF, one that those who know it, feel is well-deserved. It has a magic, romance, and aura, the Oakland Bay Bridge has never achieved.

  • How does anyone afford to visit San Francisco for a week?

    Best answer: You could stay in an airport hotel or someplace in the East Bay near a Bart station. There is also the Water's Edge hotel in Tiburon or the Waterfront hotel in Oakland both just steps from the ferry to SF.

    You may have some luck if you try some of the motor courts near the marina [my personal favorite is the Hotel Del Sol] or the smaller motels/hotels in the Haight, Richmond or Sunset.

    Downtown hotels will be expensive and traffic is going to be awful with uber and lyft priced higher because of Dreamforce. I wouldn't be surprised if the same is true of airB&B. Smart of you not to rent a car. SF has a good public transportation system and even cabs would be cheaper than paying the rent and parking for a car.

    I've found that Trip Advisor is a good place to research hotels you can search by budget and location to idea of prices for the week of Dreamforce.

    Good luck.

  • I rented a car from FOX RENTA A CAR. Will they charge me for cleaning the seats?

    Best answer: Just wipe it off with a damp towel or paper towel.
    You won't get charged for that sort of dirt- they always go over the returned vehicles anyway.
