Myself and a friend are planning on travelling to Los Angeles next year (August/September 2014) and we are both completely clueless as to what to do, where to stay etc.
We're two females, both 23 from Edinburgh, UK and we're looking to have a holiday that is both completely wild but one where we can relax!! We're going to be driving from San Francisco down the coast to LA and spending 5 nights there before heading home. Currently we're thinking of staying at the Palomar in Westwood for 3 nights then moving to the Standard Downtown LA for the last two. Are we right in thinking the Standard is nearer the action?
We need somewhere close enough to bars/clubs but at the same time we don't want to miss out on general touristy things like the Hollywood sign, Walk of Fame etc. We're planning on keeping our hire car for 2-3 days if it's worth it?
Any recommendations on places to go, places to stay, bars to try or just general info would be great as - like I said - we're completely clueless!!! I'm Edinburgh born an bred so would be happy to return the favour for anyone travelling over this way! Thanks!
