    Birthday greetings from Alaska! As a kid, we would camp along the parade route, watch the parade, and then dash over to the Rose Bowl - especially if the Trojans were in it. Fun to see it again.

    Varinia, Its a little far from the ocean, but it looks like a nice established town with a lot of cultural amenities and things to do. Doug
