I am taking a trip next week to Los Angeles, needless to say I will be there without a car. I am staying at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, but have no desire to do much of the Hollywood thing. Why stay there you ask? Because the friend I am traveling with has a conference there.
Anyway, I would like to get out to a few beaches (it is the inner beach bum in me), and maybe take some surf lessons. How possible is this without a car?
I don't want to call a cab and get to the beach only to find out it cost me $65 one way to get there.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew how readily availiable public transportation is in LA? How reliable it is? How much time I should plan on it taking to get out to a beach with traffic and all? What is the best way to get to a beach from where I am staying?
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on how best to get out of the Hollywood and to a relaxing beach or any other laid back activities, I need your help please!
