Fall-Focused Excursions in SoCal

If you’re looking forward to a fun-filled October, fall season or holiday getaway but haven’t decided on a destination, you should definitely consider a trip to Buena Park, California. It’s home to five of the seven major attractions in Orange County, which is why the area has long been considered the entertainment capital of Southern California. It’s an ideal location since there are so many exciting things for everyone to do within a few miles of each other! In fact, it’s only five miles from Disneyland, 15 miles from beaches and 20 miles from downtown Los Angeles … but perhaps a million miles from your everyday life. So that means you’ll get the best bang for your travel buck!

For example, you can dive into some outdoor thrills at ‘Knott’s Berry Farm’ theme park featuring rides that are sure to get your heart racing!  “HangTime,” set 150-feet above the boardwalk, is the first and only dive coaster in California, while the new white water attraction “Calico River Rapids” will take you into uncharted territory. However, if adrenaline isn’t your thing, Knott’s Berry Farm is bursting with other attractions and entertainment for all ages, including stage shows, interactive experiences, delicious food creations and family-friendly fun featuring Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang.

While in Buena Park, you can continue to make a splash at Orange County’s largest outdoor water park, “Knott’s Soak City,” which boasts 23 water slides, a gigantic wave pool and cabana rentals!

And when the sun goes down, you can make “eating” an experience with interactive dinner shows like the “Pirate’s Dinner Adventure” set aboard an 18th century Spanish galleon replica … the “Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament”… or the new vaudeville variety dinner show, “Teatro Martini.” For all you foodies hungry for high-quality cuisine, check out Porto’s Bakery and Cafe featuring the owners’ original recipes from Cuba. With its famed potato balls, pastries and more, you’ll quickly taste why this eatery has a four-and-a-half star rating on Yelp with nearly 4,000 reviews! Also be sure to check out Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner, which has been family tradition In Buena Park for more than 80 years!  One of America’s most popular family restaurants, it’s been serving up Cordelia Knott’s fried chicken, homemade biscuits and boysenberry pies since 1934. In fact, Buena Park is the birthplace of the boysenberry––created right there more than 60 years ago.

I also love the food and atmosphere at Rock N Brews, the brainchild of KISS front-men Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, which serves up comfort food and a side of rock ‘n roll. Also popular is The Cauldron Sprits and Brews, an immersive dining experience featuring uniquely themed French-casual gastro grub with a wicked twist. This includes the “Knotty Kid” cocktail named after the adjacent amusement park, made of boysenberry cotton candy, vodka and lemon juice.

Another reason I recommend vacationing in Buena Park is because it’s an affordable SoCal destination with reasonably-priced hotels, and the city often has great promotions. In fact, this November and December, the City of Buena Park will honor the men and women of the United States Military with exclusive deals on the area’s top hotels, attractions and restaurants. Perks include complimentary upgrades, free theme park admission and discounted rates on Buena Park Hotels.  Those interested can learn more at VisitBuenaPark.com/military.

So, in all, Buena Park is a fabulous home base for fall and holiday travel, with tons of potential for fun, food and adventures! Check out VisitBuenaPark.com for more information and to order your free travel guide!

Also fun this fall is Oktoberfest at Big Bear Lake happening every weekend from now through November 2, where you can break out those lederhosen and dirndls and cluck the night away to the chicken dance! Of course, you can also enjoy ice-cold German beer served at eight bars, including the Craft House, which serves a variety of beers to go along with juicy bratwurst hot off the grill, homemade sauerkraut and fresh apple strudel.

At Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest, there’s continuous live entertainment on two stages––including traditional polkas and dance floor favorites performed by real German bands. Other fun activities include log sawing competitions, stein holding contests, beer pong and more. There’s also a family section full of midway carnival games, face painting, inflatable slides and multiple bounce houses. So, see for yourself why Big Bear Lake’s event is Southern California’s number-one rated Oktoberfest. Purchase tickets online at BigBearEvents.com.

While in Big Bear, also check out the ropes course, which takes family adventure to new heights! This two-level obstacle course for both kids and adults towers 35 feet off the ground and offers 37 different challenges. Many of its features are exposed to nothing but air. One exciting element is the sky rail zipline stretching 80 feet and extending out onto a ledge, enhancing the overall thrill. Big Bear ropes course ensures the highest standards of safety, including a full-body harness connected to a safety line that’s inserted into a continuous track system. Each participant is fully secured at all times, from start to finish. The Big Bear ropes course is open daily, all-year round, and the cost is just $12 per person. Check it out at BigBearRopesCourse.com.

All of that travel will surely make you hungry, so I have some tasty finds on that front as well—a few of my favorite experiences in San Diego. ….

Driving with confidence, attention and while keeping in mind all the technicalities make a man pro for his car. In the modern world, many deaths are occurring due to the incapability of driving by ignoring the tricky turns, high-speed dilemmas and using distractive technology. Reaching a destination a bit late is alright instead of never reaching. Along with the driver, the person sitting next to him has the responsibility to pay attention to traffic, turns, distance from the car above, etc. This is so because the next seat partner of the driver is the one who keeps him attentive and is not supposed to be busy somewhere else. Moreover, in night times driver tends to fall asleep especially driving at highways, due to which serious deadly accidents occur. These can be avoided by the person sitting next to the driver because of being and keeping the other one attentive. Driving overall can be made easier by having a fair estimate of the longevity and depth of the turn, by keeping a safe distance from the car ahead defined as a buffer zone, keeping right indicator on timely, slowing the speed in habitat area, keeping the car in right lane according to the speed at highway. Moreover in general routine, while driving at roads in your city, breaks should go easy instead of sudden happening. Together with driving at roads, high ways, in speed, at normal speed, etc, correctly parking a car is the most important. The way a driver has parked his car shows his competence. As far as the permission of driving legally is concerned, it requires state permission called driving license and before that learner license is granted to the person. Mostly 18 is the set age in many states to legally apply for the license. All of the essentials of driving need practice and skills training available even online such as driving schools ezlicense. This provides you the opportunity to select the instructor and see his car type along with his skill set including ratings and reviews by the clients of him. An instructor can be changed anytime after selecting and can be booked any time according to his and your schedule. At the provided address, he then is supposed to be reached timely. The driving can be learned in your car or the instructor’s car. Pre-test lessons are also included in the training sessions. The most important incentive includes null charges if the person has not learned significantly from the instructor that shows the proficiency of the online teachings. WAYS TO MAKE DRIVING EASIER Learning from the proficient resource and practicing regularly makes a man perfect in any task, so is the driving. Once the driver has obtained a license, it then depends on his attentiveness and sharp mindedness that how he handles the tricky and mind diverting situations while driving. Driving is challenging, tricky and risky because, with one wrong move, a driver with the car along with the persons sitting in has a risk of life. Ways of how a person can avoid any accident, an unpleasant incident of driving are mentioned below. 1. Whether the person is driving manual or automatic, adjusting his legs, arms and neck along with the pedals, speed, brake, gears are necessary. This provides him with an edge over the seating. Mostly with the adjusting lever, most cars have beneath the seat back and the seat can be dragged forward and backward according to the height and comfort of the driver. This is the basic step a driver should do not to get tired and uncomfortable in long driving. Along with the right and comfortable adjustment, a driver must tie the seat belt before starting driving. 2. Side mirror adjustment is the other thing that makes the driving easy for switching lanes, merging in traffic and parking. In many modern high technologically equipped cars, there is an alert notification if a blind spot comes. This can be in the form of light indicating or audio notifications as well. The important mirrors in the cars are names as a rearview mirror and two side mirrors on both sides. A rearview mirror allows seeing exactly behind the car while the other allows help in overcoming blind spots. 3. The driver should let himself familiarize himself with the pedals including speed and break in automatic cars and should use one foot preferably right to have control over them. One foot should be used to avoid accidentally pressing both speed and break at once in panic situations. He should have a fair idea of gear stick as well. Gear stick includes parking, reverse, neutral and drive gears. A driver should have a clear idea of the dashboard features of his car including speedometer defining speed in mph or kph, fuel gauge indicating how much fuel is left, hotness of the engine, etc. fuel remaining indication is either a needle switching from full side to the empty side or a proper battery remaining system just like the mobile battery cells indicating the usage and emptiness of the fuel. 4. Gadgets like • multi-viewing cameras allowing the car to reverse safely and move forward with a safe distance • Adaptive cruise control systems to set the speed while traveling and setting the safe distance speed for the car ahead, • GPS allowing the driver to reach the destination through a shorter route that is unknown to him, • seatbelt alert while driving if the person himself has forgotten of it, • Bluetooth systems allowing the driver to play music, etc are the standard feature in modern cars that not just make driving easier but fun as well. 5. Driving a car while ignoring road hazards, over-speeding dangers, busy routine and overtaking are some of the features enlisted in aggressive driving features. Skilled and professional schools of driving, however, teach the exact opposite of what has been defined above. The course and technique, however, is known as defensive driving. While buying a person should keep safety his priority as a car with airbags, child locks, safer seat belts, etc is way better than others. Defensive driving includes a timely indication of turning, slowing down, emergency, etc. breaking off a signal is never a good idea as passengers, by-cycles and other route cars are supposed to pass when the signal is red. Breaking a signal can cause a serious accident resulting in never healing regret. A driver should adaptively adjust with weather and heights, etc. most importantly avoiding drive while drunk and in ill health conditions is the best decision a driver can make. CONCLUSION A driver can make driving easier with the perfect decisions he makes for himself and his car while driving. There are many online schools teaching driving, but the decisions a driver makes on-road reflects his competency. His familiarization, adjustment according to the features of the car is the basic thing making driving easier. While others include equipping modern gadgets, defensive and sensible driving, etc that make a driver successful and driving easier for him.
