Re: Best travel card for travel from israel? Why not just go with CSR? You still get lounges, lower net annual fee, better bonus categories, more flexibility in point usage.

If you're into El Al, go with Amex Platinum (U.S. version of course).

Re: San Diego Master Thread We went to SD for a few days. I wanted to be able to share with everyone my experiences, and to pay it forward. We researched the area for months, and looked at guides and on DD's for help. Thank you for everyone for their ideas.

We made a trip going from 11/8 in the evening from EWR-SAN, and then the red eye on 11/13/ from LAX-EWR.

We took Alaska Airlines from EWR-SAN. We got the tickets for about $260 rt. I used an Alaska Airlines CC for the trip, so we got free bags.  We have the Chase Sapphire, but you can't use the lounge in the terminal in the evening. They had Gogo internet on board, which we didn't want to pay for. You can get free chat and whatsapp, and because of that some internet snuck in on the phones.

We rented a car from Avis. The car rental center takes about a 10 minute drive from the terminal to the center.

We need to stay within walking distance of Bankers Hill for Shabbos. As a result we were very very limited in our hotel selection.

We ended up staying at the Hilton Garden Inn San Diego/Downtown.  We ended up booking it at a cheaper rate through the Sapphire Rewards Card.  The hotel is also a Homewood Suites.  The hotel was clean, and nice. They were wonderful for shabbos. The employees knew to let us upstairs and let us in the doors, and did it with a smile, and offered to turn on and off any lights that were needed.

Parking is a major issue in SD. The hotel charged $40 a night for parking. You can find street parking, but you have to be careful about rules and regulations. Generally parking is limited once 8am hits. So if you park overnight in a 2 hour parking zone from 8am-6pm then you can park overnight until 10am free of charge. If its 30 minute parking from 8am-6pm, then you can park until 830 free of charge.

There are also a few free spots all the time. We had to make sure to get them for shabbos.

We landed Wednesday night and checked in.

Thursday morning, we went to Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf for breakfast. We went to the Mission Valley location. Its in a shopping center which also has a Trader Joes (which has kosher wine, and raw kosher chicken). We then went to La Jolla. We went to the beach, and the Childrens Cove where there are sea lions. It is amazing.  After that we visited the JCC for lunch. The kosher cafe is in the lobby. The food was good, and not crazy expensive. We then went to Ralph's in La jolla to check it out before shabbos. They have a large kosher section, and kosher take out and Sushi. We went back there Friday for shabbos. Remember they close at like 1 or 2 in the winter for shabbos, and then you won't be able to order anything from the deli counter. On Friday they had delicious fresh challah for shabbos. The Challah on Thursday was not fresh. There is a full and complete kosher line and section. They also sell kosher wines as well. They even have a shabbos special with 2 chickens, 2 pounds of salad and a challah for $26.00. Not Bad at all.

We then drove to Coronado Island. The views were breathtaking. Then back to Coffee Bean for dinner.

Friday was back to LaJolla and Ralphs and Lazy Bean.

Shabbos  we had to be in Bankers Hill. The Hills are steep. San Francisco type steep. A cool thing is that the airplanes are literally on top of you when coming in to land. Its really amazing. We then walked to Balboa Park and did whatever free stuff you could do there on Shabbos.  Balboa Park is a must go to, even if you don't go to the zoo. Lots of cool and pretty stuff.

After shabbos back to coffee Bean.  We then went to LA for Sunday and Monday.

Sunday, we drove from SD to LA in the morning. On the way we stopped in Anaheim for Coffee Bean. Its right near Disney. We then went to Fish Grill on Beverley Boulevard for lunch. It was delicious. There is nothing like it in the NYC area, where we live.

We then drove around Beverley Hills (nice houses, we even went on some open houses), Rodeo Drive (nothing special, and overrated), Hollywood Hills, and then went to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour. It was pricey, but really really cool. The Tour is a little more than 2 hours, before they drop you off at the last part which is walk though. The movie sets and lots are really cool. We went to the Ellen set and the Big Bang Theory Set as well.

We then drove to Oxnard to go to Tierra Sur. It took us about an hour from Burbank to Oxnard. We decided to stay at the Embassy Suites in Oxnard which is right on the water. Our room was a 2 room suite, with 2 bedrooms, with our patio right on the beach. It is a nice place. It comes with breakfast in the morning with lots of kosher stuff, and they will show you what is kosher. TS is about 15 minutes from the Embassy Suites. The restaurant is all that its made out to be. Everything was delicious, and the service was impeccable. We were really happy we went.

In the morning we had breakfast, (stopped again at Coffee Bean - kosher in Oxnard), and drove to LA. We went to Griffith Park, saw the Hollywood sign, and then went back to Fish Grill for Lunch. After lunch, we did a little shopping, and then headed to Hollywood Boulevard, where we had Jimmy Kimmel Tickets. I've never been to the area before, and its a bit seedy. It reminded me of walking around the Village in the mid 90's.  We walked around, saw the Jimmy Kimmel show (tiny studio), and ran to Jeff's for dinner. It was delicious. We then ran to LAX to catch our flight back.

Rental return in LAX is a disaster. it took us almost 45 minutes from the time we gave back our car, until we got to the gate. 

We flew Virgin America, from LAX-EWR. The flight was nice, and uneventful . The same internet as Alaska (since they are co-owned now). No lounge again, since Alaska claimed it was full.

I hope that this is helpful to someone.

Re: Venice Master Thread Yes.

I forgot to mention that we started in Venice and he dropped me off in the Milan Airport.
So after driving me for 12 hours he still had to drive home.
