Day trips from Santa Monica  (8 Answers)

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?  (4 Answers)

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?

Lumpy mattress, can't do, and mold and bugs are beyond me. Can anyone help? Have had BAD experience in New Orleans so am gun shy. Pat M

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  (7 Answers)

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.

Dave

Is a "detour" worth it?~Long Beach or Burbank to Santa Monica??  (4 Answers)

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

Good value hotels  (2 Answers)

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.

Temps only in the 60's????  (5 Answers)

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?
