What?? 175 miles, I don't think so.Oh, I think you are off a bit on this. It's about 175 miles from Pasadena to Palm Springs.
Ventura, where I think there is a TS is 65 miles.
Anaheim is about 35 miles.
You were right about the distance, I guess I didn't read the google map correctly....but 100 miles is too far....when you consider the distance and the traffic....Pasadena is east LA. There are no TSs in LA!
Los Angeles is a HUGH city.....try to be more clear on what your friend is looking for....then it will be easier to offer suggestions.Thank you for your posts. Since there is nothing very close to Pasadena, my friend has decided to stay for a week in or near L.A., and then stay a night or 2 in Pasadena. Any suggestions for L.A. area?
