We wouldn't have been able to do the activities we did with a baby
Worth it with young baby? From what I read sounds like main panama attractions aren't so baby friendly...?

LAX .
we went on a road trip up the PCH and down through Yosemite NP , as well as a RT to bryce and Zion NP from LA with a 6-8 week old baby
LA is not hot in January. It's mild (50-60s) but not hot.

Iím going to Silara next week 12/16-12-19

Unfortunately Ziva was booked solid, couldntbredeem points at all! So we had to grab the last room in Zilara.... but Iím concerned. Everyone seems to be praising Ziva to the sky First of all because of how nice and new it is (as opposed to Zilara which is moreĒdatedĒ),but mainly BC of the proximity to kosher food. How far is Zilara actually to food? Can it be walked? Iím just hoping I didnít settle for something I really wonít enjoy!

25 min walk to red heifer and others, you can cab also
Jury Duty: A time with nothing to do but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach without a view and an ocean breeze.

I personally stayed in the Ziva, so I can't answer those questions, although I believe they're safe. People race about the Zilara also, so you're bound to have a great time regardless, just minus the kids

January weather is nice?
Yes

1) weather information provided is for lax. Zion, Bryce, Yosemite and Northern CA are not that warm.
2) lax is not dependably in the pleasant 60s. Low 60s, high 50s, and a twenty degree drop at night or near the ocean is definitely a distinct possibility. Had to break out a sweater last night and everything.

Thank you for bringing up the entire thread, i see the disconnect.
I was responding specifically to La weather, I've been to LA every single year for the last 10 years ( other then 1), and always had a pleasant experience. Looking at last years LA weather most of the month ranged from mid 60s to high 70s .
I will concede it gets chilly at night.
It is a great time to visit Southern California and Death valley NP .

It's 48 this morning before sunrise, will be high 60s by lunch. But that week was pretty rainy and cold as I recall.
