This is my first question here. I have found this forum very useful in my travel plans.
My sis & her husband are visiting the U.S and they don't drive. They will be in Los Angeles for 3 days (12, 13, 14 August). They would be visiting the usual touristy spots like the Walk of Fame, Chinese Theater, Ripley, Hollywood signs. Besides these, I wanted to give them the following options:
a) One of the theme parks (either Disney or Universal)
c) A day in San Diego zoo and back the same day (I know - its a 2:45 train ride one way)
I am trying to decide where would they be best positioned to stay (close to touristy spots & close to public transportation). Is Hollywood/West-Hollywood better or is downtown better?
I am also trying to decide whether they should stay in a hotel or a vacation rental. I saw some pretty decent rentals which are cheaper than hotels in the Hollywood area, but dont know if they will be as conveniently located - public transport wise
Thanks in advance for your suggestions
