We will be travelling with our 3 children aged 10, 14 and 16, in late January, and are looking to stay in SM . Can anyone suggest a good, clean and central place to stay? How long does it take to get from here to Hollywood and Beverly Hills? We will have a car. What are the must-sees of this area. My 16yr old daughter wants to see where The OC tv show is filmed (!). Any ideas? Anyone know of a good place to go for her birthday here?
