    • Day trips from Santa Monica

      by anderkelly Online Now May 31, 2013 at 11:32 AM

      New question! My husband and I will be renting a car for one day to go somewhere else other than Santa Monica and Hollywood. Any recommendations on someplace along the coastline that's under a two-hour drive? We're up for good restaurants, a nice beach, or some sightseeing.

    • Should I rent a car to go into Hollywood?

      by anderkelly Online Now May 30, 2013 at 8:51 AM

      My husband and I are going to spend the day in West Hollywood, and I've planned several activities that are somewhat close together - LACMA, The Grove and then drinks at Chateau Marmont and a comedy show at the Laugh Factory. We'll be coming from Santa Monica and I had previously thought we could cab in and walk to all of these somewhat close locations, and then cab back at night. Do you recommend this, or would renting a car be a better option?

      We are traveling to Santa Monica for X-mas with our 11 and 12 year old sons. We reserved a room at Shutters on the Beach. First, is it safe for the boys to go to the pier on there own if they want? Any suggestions on activities. We were thinking of renting a car. Possibly visiting Universal Studios and Venice Beach.

      Hi, My husband and I are visiting Santa Monica for 7 days at the beginning of October. This is our first visit to America. We're trying to choose a really central hotel. Is Santa Monica an easily walkable area? We will be visiting places around the LA area but had hoped not to have to hire a car. Any help or advice would be really welcome. many thanks.

      Lodging and location question

      by dldkag Online Now May 12, 2010 at 9:45 AM

      Hi,
      We'll be in LA in July and have chosen Santa Monica as our base. Because we've found that the nice hotels with availability are charging350 or more per night, we're considering renting a condo for the 4 nights. The place we're looking at is near Lincoln and Santa Monica Blvd. Is this a good location? Will we be able to walk to most places (i.e. Pier, Promenade)?

      Also, how long of a drive will it be to Disneyland and Hollywood from Santa Monica (assuming non rush hour traffic)?

      Thanks for your assistance.

    • Is a "detour" worth it?~Long Beach or Burbank to Santa Monica??

      by veresa Online Now Sep 9, 2009 at 12:38 AM

      Hi! I'm lost! I am looking to get to SM ultimately, but a direct flight to LAX fr LAS seems too much to me ($99 w/tx & fees). Alternately, I am looking to get to Santa Monica fr LB or BUR. So, I am willing to take a "detour" flight & stay a night outside of SM to *save* ~$50 OW fr LAS & see another site (only opt-->evening flight). 1) Am I better off getting that deal for an evening flight to Burbank or Long Beach (i.e.,49 OW fr LAS) + a one-nt's over-nighter @either (to incl. that nt & nxt day sightseeing), and then head to SM via *Mass Transit* or cab (will not rent a car)? ORRRRR...2) Shall I spend the overpriced99w/tax OW flight fr LAS to LAX to stay all my 3 nts in Santa Monica (+ transport)? I am truly looking for the best beach experience w/ the ability to go out solo comfortably for a little nightlife/wining & dining. Ultimately, I will stay "in the area" 3-nts, no more, no less from 9/19-9/22. Also, I just received Leno tix for my last nt's stay on 9/21. Help! ;>' BB

      I am planning on staying a few nights around the Santa Monica area and would like to stay close to the beach although to get better value I am happy to go a bit as I have a car. I wonder is there any area close to the coast where car parking is likely to be free for guests and reasonably priced hotels.

      I'm due to arrive in SaMo on July 7th. I've been watching the weather on "weather.com" and notice it's only reaches the hight 60's for the high from now until June 5th. Has it really been that cool? I will have a 9 yr old boy w/me and would like to spend a few days at the beach, otherwise the kid may get kinda bored. Have people been on the beach? Does it maybe feel warmer than the high 60's?

    • Sushi in Santa Monica

      by MN07 Online Now Oct 18, 2007 at 2:56 PM

      I love sushi and sashimi - not the overdone ones, I mean real ones. I often try sushi when I go to new places. That is, if one can expect it's good (I wouldn't go for it in Vienna or Venice). So far have I had the best in Dubai and in a small family run business in Stockholm (where the small Japanese colony are regular guests). Someone told me that there are some good sushi bars and restaurants in Santa Monica thanks to the strong Japanese culture still alive. Don't know about that, though if you have some sushi pearls to share, don't hesitate to post an answer. I'm going to S.M and love to test new places. I'll also appreciate if you can recommend where one can find good shellfish. Thanks.
