    Sounds awesome, Cara! I know you'll have a good time, though you will be tired as heck by the end of it all. At least you will sleep on your way back home! PM me when you get a chance.

    Are you driving to San Diego and then back to Anaheim for. Garden tour? Traffic is challenging and the Zoo is a several hour experience

    We're being very lazy and are booked on a coach excursion from our hotel to the Zoo and back again - so all the times etc are scheduled in for us. We're having dinner at Anaheim Garden Walk about 9pm that evening, so according to the times given to us by the tour company, we should have several hours in between to spare.

    Sounds great Cara So many things on there remind me of our NYC trip in April.

    The bus tours are excellent if you get a good guide; I took SO many photos of architecture on the Uptown tour. Ellis Island is fascinating too.

    We were there for 9 nights and were exhausted by the time we came home. The noise and chaos can be a little overwhelming but since coming home and reminiscing about the place I can't wait to go back

    Hope you have a blast and cant wait to hear about your adventures.
    We may all grow old, but never grow up xx
