ISO of a well-priced driver (or taxi) to pick us up from HPN and drive us to Monsey? One way car rentals are expensive.
Need for next Friday.

Anyone of you needs sea world tickets, I have some from the daily getaways promo this year that I don't think I will get to use. Willing to sell at cost $50 a ticket.

Doubt they are but  figured I'd try...Any tickets still available..?

3 weeks is an insane amount of time for LA. I'd recommend doing a North-South (or vise versa) through SF-LA-SD. Note that part of the PCH is closed. I think a week is a good amount of time in LA.

What would you say is ideal amt of time to stay in 1) San Diego 2) San Francisco.

Thinking of driving from LA to SFO and then back over the course of 3-4 days... heard it's a beautiful drive and some beautiful sights/attractions in SFO. Want to make sure - it's worth the travel time? Will be travelling with young children.

Sounds like you're asking for someone to plan your trip. Did you read the wiki? Most of the things to do are listed there.

Knew this was coming and that's  why I prefaced by saying that I looked  thru the threads
I spent lots of time perusing the multiple threads/ wiki (LA, SD, SF etc). Picked up a lot of info. However since it's our first visit, I wasn't sure how to prioritize and filter thru all the attractions and sights.
All I'm asking is for any tips for first time visit with children - re attractions and sights. Have my info re hotels and restaurants. No pressure

ISO tips for first time trip to LA.
First and foremost - I did spent quite a bit of time looking thru prev posts. But finding it hard to piece together the relevent, current info.

Planning a trip to LA with our family - incl 3 children ages 6, 3 and baby. Will be my first time there.
Duration: 2.5/3 weeks. in August
Location: will be based in LA.
Transportation: rental vehicle

What are the top 5 or 10 must do/sees for first time visitors with children?

Besides for LA, which other places should we visit (can travel mid week for a couple of day and return to LA for shabbos, or we can stay for shabbos too. Flexible.).
Palm Springs? San Diego? San Francisco? Which are on top of the list, and did I miss anything?

One more question - which part of the PCH is the most beautiful?

Looked through the thread but didn't find too much info on my following question: any updated info would be appreciated... here goes:

my husband got one southwest card with 50,000 signup bonus. when he tried applying for another (bc he wants to get the companion pass) he didn’t get approved… since his credit ain’t too good.
can i get the other one and then merge them together for 100,000 points? would that work (merging accounts of spouses with same last name)?
