Sun Valley Jose Mier as you know I was promoted several different day trips, all which can be accomplished starting from are beautiful community of Sun Valley. One of the most attractive features of the living in Southern California is the variety of landscapes in a small geographic area. It is possible for someone in Southern California to wake up, go skiing in snow covered mountains in the morning, drive one or two hours and go surfing in the ocean in the afternoon.
Possibilities like those are what makes Sun Valley such a great place to live, especially since we are located pretty much in the center of all this activity and by driving one hour either West or to the east, we can reach Snow on our mountains in the winter months or the Pacific ocean if we go the other way.
For this day trip we’re not saying you should pack all this into one day. No, today we’re merely talking about a trip to the snow, and specifically a visit to Mount Baldy on the northern edge of the Inland Empire. You don’t have to be a skier to enjoy the mountain climate, fresh air in at this time of year Snow, but if you do ski there are opportunities for you to enjoy the sport by driving only an hour from Sun Valley.
Like most of the day trips we talk about on Sun Valley Jose Mier the directions for this one are also very easy. At the risk of repeating ourselves it’s because Sun Valley is located so close to so many Southern California freeways. To get to Mount Baldy from sun Valley the route is as follows:
Take the 5 freeway south to the 134 freeway east. The 134 turns into the 210 freeway when you get to Pasadena. Continue to follow the 210 freeway east until exit 52 in Claremont. Once you exit, go north on Mount Baldy Road until you reach your destination. All in all it will take just about an hour. Now with recent rains and snowfall, it’s a good time to visit our mountain resort areas. If you are one of those adventurous types you could even start with a swim the Pacific ocean in the morning and end your day in the snows of Mount Baldy. In fact that might be very attractive to those who are visiting from back East and the severe winter storms that they’re going through right now.
Take Out and Delivery Are Popular Options During COVID
Sun Valley Jose Mier has been doing some thinking during this pandemic and one of the things we think about is where Sun Valley residents are eating–if it’s not at home. For most of us we are staying in more then we did in 2019 but even despite the coronavirus pandemic we’re still dealing with, people like to have a treat once in a while, eat out, take out or have something delivered.
We had our suspicions that the pizza industry was doing rather well despite–or because of —the coronavirus shutdown. What we found confirms those suspicions. People want to take out a meal for themselves and their family that Pizza is an easy choice because it’s low cost and it will feed a lot of people. Don’t just take our word for it. Read the stats on the QSR Magazine website.
We wanted feature some of the Pizza places here in Sun Valley in an effort to get business going so without further ado here’s a list of some of the best-known pizza parlors in Sun Valley California.
Sun Valley Jose Mier researches just about everything we can find concerning Sun Valley from shopping to dining to real estate. One of the real estate sites that you may not know about is Rubyhome.com. This real estate site is dedicated to Southern California homes specifically.

Sun Valley Jose Mier has compiled other day trips from Sun Valley but we wanted to make know of this suggestion in light of the fact that it seems Los Angeles County will be easing up on some of our coronavirus restrictions. That means within a few days outdoor dining should be available once again and we can take advantage of it.
Day trips from Sun Valley don’t have to be very long. I know we talked about trips to Orange County or the Santa Barbara area, but taking a trip to Beverly Hills is only a little over 30 minutes and it’s an opportunity to get out of Sun Valley and change of scenery for an afternoon or whatever you’d like to do.
For visitors to Southern California who are making Sun Valley their base of operations, Beverly Hills is usually one of those things the people want to see when they’re visiting us and it’s so easy. It’s actually an enjoyable drive over the Hollywood hills, including some twists and turns and then you’re in the midst of huge houses and fancy restaurants. Of course visitors to Southern California always want to take a walk down Rodeo Drive and our route will take you right there.
Our favorite way to get to Beverly Hills is to take Hollywood Way south to the 134 freeway. Hop on the 134 West, allow it to merge with the 101 freeway, exit on Coldwater Canyon and head south. Coldwater Canyon will take you over the Hollywood hills and it turns into Rexford Drive. Rexford will take you to Santa Monica Blvd. and it’s only a block or two to Rodeo Drive and shopping and dining. Total drive time: 34 minutes.

However, today we wanted to address the different transportation options available for whatever trip you want to take and specifically by using the website Rome to Rio.
If you’re unfamiliar with Rome to Rio it’s a website that will give you all the transportation options from one point to another. You literally can put in two different cities such as Rome, Italy and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and see your transportation options. We’re not looking to take a trip of that magnitude. We just want to get from downtown Los Angeles to Sun Valley. As we’ve written many times before Sun Valley has easy access to a number of freeways, making the trip to anywhere in Southern California pretty easy. But automobiles are not the only modes of transport available to us.
One of the benefits of living in Sun Valley is that we have our own Metrolink stop (located at 8360 San Fernando Rd.) so it’s a snap to hop on the Metrolink train and take it into downtown Los Angeles at Union Station. Union Station is the hub for not only Metrolink trains but the underground subway, the Metro, as well as aboveground train lines such as the red line. All these options means it’s possible to get around Southern California from Long Beach to the Inland Empire without having to use an automobile.

Sun Valley Jose Mier tries to unearth those hidden things in our city that even longtime residents may not know about. One of those things is car auctions and specifically the Copart organization which has a location here in Sun Valley.
Most people, when in the market for a vehicle, go the traditional route, buying from a dealership—either new or used—buy from an individual or these days it’s even possible to buy a car online. However, some people look for unique opportunities such as purchasing a vehicle that’s been damaged in an accident at a car auction.
Copart is a company with locations throughout the United States and sells vehicles at auction. We just happen to have a Copart location here in Sun Valley, however there are locations in just about every state. Car auctions are a fascinating subject and the reasons people take advantage of these auctions are many. Some may want to find a deal and purchase a vehicle that’s been damaged at a low cost and spend the money to repair it. Others may be restoring the vehicle and need parts that they can salvage from a heavily damaged vehicle. As we’ve said it’s an interesting subject but those who want to take advantage of automobile auctions should be knowledgeable and know what they’re getting into. Some of the damage to these vehicles is extensive and if you’re planning to repair the vehicle and drive it you have to be very sure that it will be worth the effort.
With car auctions you really need to know what you’re doing, but if you do you can take advantage of the fact that we have our own Copart location here at 11409 Penrose St. You can also take a look at the Copart website where you can view the automobiles offered throughout the country and can join auctions online. Copart also has an app for your mobile device, giving you the ability to purchase the vehicle at auction with a few clicks. The fact that we have a location here in Sun Valley is good because it allows you to actually visit the location and check out the cars yourself.
If you have the intestinal fortitude to join an automobile auction our city is a perfect place to do this. It is possible to make a good buy, but as we’ve said you need to know what you’re doing. Regardless, this is a fascinating area that most people don’t know about but it could be fun just to take a look at the cars, gather information and think about what you could do with them.
