My partner and I (mid 20s) are coming to LA for 4 nights mid October 2012. Excluding disney land (because it is so far out of the way) we would like to visit universal studios, walk of fame, santa monica, malibu, the lifeguard thing from the OC and rodeo drive. Open to other suggestions of worthwhile attractions?
We will not have a car and have limited time, where are we best to stay? A travel agend recommended Rodeo Drive but it seems once we do the strip there isnt a great deal to do there. We would want to eat out each night, catch a movie and show perhaps. Please assist me with the best area you think would suit us, and a hotel that is less than $250 per night?
