Preparing your trip to California: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Downtown Los Angeles 1. Many large cities have special HopOn-HopOff tourist buses; their route passes through the most remarkable and interesting places. You can learn more about buses and their schedules at any station.
2. Those expecting to devote a lot of time to excursions should definitely visit the tourist office to buy the travel card. Despite the fact that it costs about $200, it helps to save considerably.
3. Fans of fishing have to consider that coarse and ocean fishing is possible only with the license. Before you go fishing, it’s better to clarify existing rules in the hotel or the nearest tourist office.
4. Tourists who expect to travel by car, visit nature reserves and stay in hotels near the busiest routes have to take into account the important caveat. There are lots of bears looking for food left in the car at parking lots and camps in natural reserves. You have to take away all drinks and food from the car and lock windows and doors.
5. You can pay with a credit card literally everywhere; some larger stores offer customers the CashBack service. Paying for the purchase, you can ask the seller to write off a large amount of the card and to pay the difference in cash. This method of withdrawing requires no fees, in contrast to the standard ATM. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Those wishing to stay connected with loved ones shouldn’t worry about the Internet, as it is literally everywhere. Even the small cafe or restaurant is sure to have free Wi-Fi.
7. Travelers taking medications are strongly recommended to take pills with them. It won’t be easy to buy the right medicine in any town in California, as there are no specialized pharmacies there.
