    • Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration – Wednesday, December 24, 2014, 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.

      by sliang1109 Online Now Dec 18, 2014 at 9:43 PM

      1) How early should we be there to get in the line?

      2) the info webpage musiccenter.org/tickets/Cale... states the "Parking under The Music Center is free". However, the Music Center website ->Plan Your Visit ->Parking lists all parking options including rates, NOT free. Can someone tell me is the free parking is just for the County Holiday Celebration? If so,

      3) How to enter "Parking under the The Music Center" Also, we are visiting LA Dec.22-26, is this event worth our time? Thanks.

    • Parking for Laker's Game

      My family of four are going to watch a Laker's game on Dec. 23rd, need your advice on where to park. We don't mind walking a few blocks, but of course need your advice if it's safe to walk. The game starts at 7:30pm, so it'd be 10:30pm or later when it ends.

      Thank you very much.

      Online, I'm seeing traffic delays and construction along the I-5 from LAX to San Diego. We'll be traveling that route on Dec 1/14, flight getting in at 2pm. Recommendations from locals on the quickest route? Google maps recommends the 405 & I5. Is that correct?

      Driving along the west coast in April

      by apbeaches Online Now Sep 6, 2014 at 12:46 PM

      We are planning our April vacation along the West Coast. We wanted to fly into LA or San F and drive up or down. Which do you recommend in April?

      We've put together a tentative itinerary, does this sound right?

      2 days in LA to Venice Beach, Malibu
      1 day in Santa Barbara to Pismo Beach, Solvang, San Luis Obispo,
      1 day at Morro Bay Hearst Castle, Big Sur, Hearst Castle,
      1 day in Monterey to see Cannery Row, Old Town, Point Joe's and Fish Wife Restaurant
      4 days in San Francisco

      Any hotel or restaurant recommendations?

      Anything else we must see? Is the Winchester House worth going out of our way for or will Hearst be enough?

      Thanks in Advance! Andrea

    • LA Mum and 14 year old son

      by Lilly_Oz Online Now Aug 24, 2014 at 3:45 AM

      My teenage son and I are traveling to LA in September. Itinerary so far:
      Day 1 Arrive LAX from Australia and fly to Las Vegas should arrive about 2.00pm -
      Day 2 Las Vegas see the sights, shopping Premium outlet, show etc
      Day 3 Drive to Grand Canyon South stay overnight
      Day 4 Grand Canyon mule ride and drive back to Las Vegas
      Day 5 Fly Las Vegas to LAX shuttle to Anaheim - get there about 2.00pm shopping ?? Outet store or shopping centre - suggestions please. Staying at Carousel Inn
      Day 6 Disneyland
      Day 7 California Adventure Land
      Day 8 Legoland - not sure whether to drive or go by shuttle bus??
      Day 9 Shuttle to LAX then to accommodation (Booked into Elan - not sure if this is the right location) Shopping, Farmers Market and The Grove is close by I believe?? We would like to buy clothes and nike shoes etc. Is Citadel Outlet worth going to?
      Day 10 Universal Studios
      Day 11 Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre, Rodeo Drive, Venice Beach, Santa Monica and maybe Malibu - 7.30pm LA Kings Hockey game at Staples Centre (tickets booked)
      Day 12 Warner Brothers, Red Line Bus Tour, Griffith Observatory, Hollywood Sign, Madam Tussauds
      Day 13 ?? we fly out at 11.45pm ? Hollywood Museum

      Advice please as to whether I have grouped the LA sites correctly or have missed anything that teenager might enjoy. We will hire a car, but if we can stay somewhere that we don't need a vehicle each day please advise. I was thinking of buying a 5 day Go Card Los Angeles which will cover Legoland, Universal, Warner Brothers plus others but have been told I need to buy a Front of Line Pass for Universal and assume that you can't upgrade to this with the Go Card??

      Any advice greatly appreciated.

      Hi,

      Will be travelling with my friend for 8 days in Sept. Neither of us have ever been to LA/California and apart from what we have seen on tv don't have any ideas on the to-dos while we are there! Any suggestions we would really welcome.....also is there anywhere that you would recommend travelling to while we are there? Thinking of a drive to Vegas for 2 days maybe but if there are better suggestions would be eager to look into other options!

      On another note, we arrive at 8pm after travelling from Ireland. Where is the best place to stay for night one? Cant imagine we will be up for doing anything too crazy but would like to see something California-ish when we wake up the following morning! Beach or Hollywood? Hotel recommendations?

      Like i said, new to LA so totally open to options!

      Thanks in advance :-)

      2 - Any special stops; cities, hotels, restaurants? What shouldn't we miss?
      3 - Understand direct route is 5.5 hours, how much time should be devote to this?

      Where to stay?

      by lallarebecca Online Now Jul 9, 2014 at 9:31 AM

      In mid-novermber I will come for 3 nights to L.A. for the first time with my mom.

      I have been looking around various bookingsites to find the perfect accomodation, but there is such a wide variety and upon that comes the question of which area to choose for a first-timer?

      I´ll be happy for all your advice.

      We are looking for something which is clean, has decent service, in a good location and somewhere between 2-4 stars. We are mostly staying in 4-stars, but the most important thing is that the place is clean. Our budget would be around 350 dollars per night or slightly more if value is great. If you have any cheaper tips that are good they are very welcome as well of course.

      We´ll be renting a car on our day after arrival so if the place is not too far from an Avis or Hertz office that would be great, or else at least, be near local transportation that could take us to such a place.

      Since we´ll be having a car, I´d appreciate if the parking fee at the recommended hotels are not ridiculously expensive, though I know parking in L.A. hotels generally are expensive.

      Great thanks in advance!

      Redondo Beach

      by ScotsSunseeker Online Now Jul 3, 2014 at 12:32 PM

      Hi again and thanks for the answers to my previous query, all very helpful.

      Ok, Redondo Beach, really want to visit here and tried before but my wife was put off when the train stopped at the raised station and she couldn't see any transport link to take us to into the city. So, is this the only way to get to Redondo or is there a bus link from Downtown? I have done some searching and now realise that all we had to do was go downstairs from the station to catch a bus but I am curious as to any other way of getting there. We love bus journeys as we enjoy seeing a city this way.

      Thanks in advance, Phil.
