hi guys, i'm veronica hill with california travel tips. if you're a subscriber to this channel, you're either planning a trip to california, or you're a resident looking for new places to check out. today i'm going to share some of my top 10 travel tips for visiting california like a local.

tip no. 1: book california state park campgrounds exactly 7 months before you want to visit on http://www.reserveamerica.com. if you're hoping to score a busy holiday like the fourth of july, reserve a few dates in the end of june, then add a few days to your visit. securing a campground in yosemite is also tricky. you'll need to log into http://www.recreation.gov a few minutes before 7 a.m. on the 15th of the month ? five months in advance of your visit. popular campgrounds in the valley sell out in seconds! for example, if you want to book a stay between june 15 and july 14, you need to book on february 15. 

tip no. 2: if you're going to disneyland, take advantage of the fastpass service. just insert your park ticket into the kiosk for a designated fastpass ride and you'll receive a ticket allowing you to return later and cut the line. i've found it's handy to have one person gather all of your tickets to get the fast pass while you wait in line for another attraction. if you have kids too small to ride an attraction, the baby switch pass is another good bet. just ask a cast member for the pass at the entrance. make sure you ride the most popular attractions right when the park opens. knott's has a similar service called fastlane, but you have to pay for it.

tip no. 3: avoid traveling in the summer if you can. most of the amusement parks are packed to capacity, with long lines and hot waits in the sun. the fall and winter sees much fewer crowds, and the hotels are cheaper too.

tip no. 4: get on the groupon list for each city you are visiting. you'll be able to get discounts on some really cool attractions and restaurants you may not have considered before. if you want great hotel rates, check out sites like priceline or hotel tonight for last-minute lodging. 

tip no. 5: if you plan on visiting several theme parks or attractions, look into the go card or city pass. they offer discounts on many of the most popular sights in la, san diego and san francisco. if you're a costco member, many warehouses sell discount tickets to theme parks, restaurants and sporting events.

tip. no. 6: if there's an expensive restaurant you want to try, go during happy hour. often you'll get to sample their best dishes and drinks at half the price.

tip no. 7: families should plan their san diego vacations in october, when the city hosts its kids free month. many of the area's most popular attractions, including san diego zoo, the wild animal park and balboa park are free for kids 12 and under.

tip no. 8: if your favorite hotel or campground is booked, try again seven days in advance. this is when many people cancel their reservations to avoid penalties. 

tip no. 9: if you're heading to more than one of the seven california national parks, consider getting the annual pass for $80. admission is free for all the parks in april during national parks week, and in november during veterans day weekend. 

tip no. 10: for the best fares, book your trip midweek for flights departing and arriving on a tuesday, wednesday or thursday. the cheapest rates can often be found online between 10 p.m. wednesdays and 6 a.m. thursdays around the 7th of each month. additionally, the cheapest fares are found 7, 14 and 21 days before you leave.

these are just a few tips to get you started. if you some of your own to share, please drop us a line in the comments below. thanks for watching!

  packing tips | how to pack for a week in...
subscribe! http://tinyurl.com/p2fveuj

veronica hill of california travel tips shares her best packing tips using the rolling method. this tutorial will show you what to pack for a week in a carry-on. a separate video will show you what to pack in your second allowance bag, which is a backpack.

if you want to avoid checking your bags, buy a suitcase that's 45 linear inches, which is the total of the length, height and width of the bag. 

what i pack for a week in my carry-on:
a good rule is to pack 6 tops, 4 bottoms, 2 dresses, 3 shoes (tennies, dressy ballet flats and sandals), 2 bathing suits, 10 undies and 4 bras for a weeklong trip. keep everything in 2-3 coordinating shades. in place of one top, bring a cardigan for cool nights, even in california. it's also great for dressing up an outfit and doesn't take up much space.

1) roll up jeans and heavier garments first.
2) put shoes in first, soles against the wall, followed by the rolled jeans and lighter items.
3) camis add a pop of color and are great for layering or sleepwear.
4) pack underwear and jewelry in your shoes. it will save space.
5) pack several sizes of zip bags. the 2 1/2 gallon size can double as packing cubes. just sit on them and force out the air for the most space. you can pack an entire outfit in each bag for quick access each morning. others can be used for dirty underwear, wet bathing suits, ice packs, or protection for your camera in wet weather.  put a dryer sheet in each ziploc bag to keep clothes smelling fresh. 
6) follow the 311 rule. all liquids brought onto planes must be in 3.4-ounce bottles or smaller and inside a single, clear, quart-size zip-top bag. store your liquids in the front pocket of your carry-on so it's easily accessible during security check.
7) use tissue paper to roll up your silk, cotton and linen clothing. it helps prevent wrinkles. 
8) i always pack a pair of black yoga pants and black tank top. they can double as pjs. take advantage of the hotel laundry service.
9) pack a versatile black dress, which can be worn to the beach, used as a coverup at the pool, or worn for a casual night out.
10) if you end up buying too much stuff at your destination, pack up all your dirty clothes and send it home by ups. then you'll have more room in your case!

  travel tips - 10 best travel apps for vi...
subscribe! http://tinyurl.com/p2fveuj
hey everyone! i'm veronica hill with california travel tips and today i'm sharing my picks for the 10 best travel apps for visiting california. there are a few others worth mentioning, which i'll share with you guys in another episode. i hope you have a chance to check out these california travel apps. they are sure to be your friends next time you visit california!

1. if you're going to disneyland, the disneyland wait times walkee app is worth a look. it features up-to-the-minute wait times, along with restaurant menus, park maps and a daily calendar. 

2. if you want to spice up your visit, check out the hidden mickeys app, which sends you on a hunt for hidden surprises throughout the park.

3. another favorite is everytrail pro. this app allows you to search for hiking trails near your location, or download gps-enabled sightseeing tours in big cities like san francisco and los angeles. what's best? you can download the maps so you don't need cell service to follow the map.

4. most of you are likely going to hit the beach at some time during your visit. for the latest surf reports, i like the free surf report by oakley app. powered by surfline, this app shares the latest surf conditions in southern and northern california, updated several times daily. you can add your favorite surf spots to a list so they're always available at a glance.

5. are you renting a car? then iexit is a must. this app is great for road trips, telling you exactly what gas stations, restaurants and coffee shops are at your next freeway exit. unlike google and apple maps, it only suggests places that are in the direction you're heading.

6. want to check out some great restaurants? yelp is an old favorite. this is one of my favorite apps for discovering nearby restaurants and bars. each listing has photos, phone numbers and customer reviews. you can add your own photos and reviews straight from the phone. 

7. open table is another good choice. this app allows you to view restaurant menus near your gps-enabled location, or search by restaurant name. browse the menu, then make the reservation right from your phone. 

8. want to find out where the star chefs eat locally? check out chef's feed.

9. tipulator is another one of my favorites ? just because i'm terrible at math. this app allows you to calculate the tip at a restaurant, or split the bill between several people. it's great for people like me who have trouble figuring these things out. 

10. if you aren't picky about your activities, set up a groupon for the cities you'll be traveling to. i've found deep discounts for skydiving in san diego, wine tasting in temecula, and winter whale watching cruises off newport beach. why pay full price at the door?

finally, for all you light sleepers out there, check out sleep pillow. i've tried about 10 white noise apps, and this one is my favorite ? perfect for hotels with thin walls and noisy neighbors. and if you get a good night's sleep, your trip is going to be much more enjoyable.

honorable mentions!
tripit is a great way to organize your trip into one master itinerary, which is available at a glance. you can set it up so hotel and flight reservations are automatically entered into the app.

what are your top travel apps? let me know in the comments below. thanks for watching!!!

hey everyone! i'm veronica hill with california travel tips and today i'm sharing my picks for the 10 best travel apps for visiting california. there are a few others worth mentioning, which i'll share with you guys in another episode. i hope you have a chance to check out these california travel apps. they are sure to be your friends next time you visit california!

1. if you're going to disneyland, the disneyland wait times walkee app is worth a look. it features up-to-the-minute wait times, along with restaurant menus, park maps and a daily calendar. 

2. if you want to spice up your visit, check out the hidden mickeys app, which sends you on a hunt for hidden surprises throughout the park.

3. another favorite is everytrail pro. this app allows you to search for hiking trails near your location, or download gps-enabled sightseeing tours in big cities like san francisco and los angeles. what's best? you can download the maps so you don't need cell service to follow the map.

4. most of you are likely going to hit the beach at some time during your visit. for the latest surf reports, i like the free surf report by oakley app. powered by surfline, this app shares the latest surf conditions in southern and northern california, updated several times daily. you can add your favorite surf spots to a list so they're always available at a glance.

5. are you renting a car? then iexit is a must. this app is great for road trips, telling you exactly what gas stations, restaurants and coffee shops are at your next freeway exit. unlike google and apple maps, it only suggests places that are in the direction you're heading.

6. want to check out some great restaurants? yelp is an old favorite. this is one of my favorite apps for discovering nearby restaurants and bars. each listing has photos, phone numbers and customer reviews. you can add your own photos and reviews straight from the phone. 

7. open table is another good choice. this app allows you to view restaurant menus near your gps-enabled location, or search by restaurant name. browse the menu, then make the reservation right from your phone. 

8. want to find out where the star chefs eat locally? check out chef's feed.

9. tipulator is another one of my favorites ? just because i'm terrible at math. this app allows you to calculate the tip at a restaurant, or split the bill between several people. it's great for people like me who have trouble figuring these things out. 

10. if you aren't picky about your activities, set up a groupon for the cities you'll be traveling to. i've found deep discounts for skydiving in san diego, wine tasting in temecula, and winter whale watching cruises off newport beach. why pay full price at the door?

finally, for all you light sleepers out there, check out sleep pillow. i've tried about 10 white noise apps, and this one is my favorite ? perfect for hotels with thin walls and noisy neighbors. and if you get a good night's sleep, your trip is going to be much more enjoyable.

honorable mentions!
tripit is a great way to organize your trip into one master itinerary, which is available at a glance. you can set it up so hotel and flight reservations are automatically entered into the app.

what are your top travel apps? let me know in the comments below. thanks for watching!!!
