My 17 year old son and I are coming to the Los Angeles area next weekend arriving at LAX in the late morning on Friday. I need to drop him off at UCLA on Sunday afternoon. We also have an event to attend on Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. in Burbank. During our last college visit trip we stayed in the Marina del Rey area and traveled up the coast to Santa Barbara. This time, I am thinking of staying in Huntington Beach on Friday and Saturday night. This will allow us to either visit a couple of schools that interest him in Orange County or spend time at the beach. The main challenge is the event on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. I am renting a car. Based on "usual" Saturday morning traffic, how long should it take us to drive to Burbank from the Huntington Beach area. I am actually thinking of staying in one of the hotels out on I-5 so that we will be accessible to the schools, the beach and Burbank. Before I book my hotel in that area, does this plan make sense? Please let me know! Thanks, Moms
P.S. We will still be on the Eastern Time Zone so getting up and going in the morning shouldn't be a problem for me (don't know about my always sleeping and sleepy son!) Thanks!
