We are coming to Cali in late May for a graduation and then driving up the coast to my sister's house in San Fran.
We arrive in LAX...staying in Santa Monica. We are planning on taking a taxi from LAX to our hotel.
We will be staying one night in Santa Barbara and have decided to take the train there to avoid LA traffic and an extra day of a rental car. How easy will it be for us to get a cab from Santa Monica to the train station? Is Van Nuys the closest one? Will there be cabs at the train station to get to our Inn?
Once in Santa Barbara we will walk and take the trolley around so we wont need a car until the next morning. We have booked a rental car w/hertz. Again - will it be easy to get a cab to our rental car location> (there was one at the airport in town or one at the Fess Parker doubletree...not sure which would be easier.)
