We are planning on coming out to SJ for a week and a bit to do some hiking, sightseeing, and of course indulge in the George Street Festival. Looking for any tips on where to stay to keep our budget a little more realistic. We've thought that the best idea would probably be renting a furnished apartment.
Also any tips on surviving the Festival would be appreciated as well...we'll be just coming from 10 days at the 100th anniversary of the Stampede...so more of the same I imagine? From what I've read nothing really happens during the days...is that correct?
Finally any suggestions of hikes in and around SJ that are interesting....we've looked into a few including the Spout hike but would love more suggestions.
