I'll be flying into LAX from Toronto Saturday October 6th and taking a Disney Cruise Sunday the 7th which departs from the Cruise terminal in San Pedro. (My other half is an officer with DCLso I'm meeting up with the ship there)
My dilemma is whether to pay the extra money to stay in San Pedro the night before or to go for a more basic budget friendly hotel in Long Beach where there might be more going on.
There is a marathon/half marathon race going on in Long Beach starting very early on Sunday morning. I'm wondering if that will cause a huge traffic nightmare and how difficult it will be to get to the port. I'm thinking of taking a taxi across.
I'm looking for somewhere in proximity of some shops and bars/restaurants and within a reasonable distance to the water so I can go for a walk.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
