My family and I will be spending 3 days in LA from 27 - 30 March this year (we will be arriving via shuttle from Anaheim and departing early on the 30th). We are staying at the Magic Castle Hotel.
I would love some assistance with our itinerary as I want to make the most of our limited time there.
We are travelling with my 11 year old stepson, so we want to see the sights but do it in a way that keeps him interested.
I was thinking that it would be best to visit Universal Studios on the 28th (Friday).
On the 29th (Saturday) there is an ice hockey game we're interested in going to at The Staples Centre. I thought that we could combine this with a visit to The Grammy Museum, a tour of LA Live and dinner beforehand?
I know that we can walk to the Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre, Madame Tussauds from our hotel and see the Hollywood sign from the Hollywood and Highland Centre.
In addition we would like to visit California Science Centre, Griffith Observatory, La Brea Tar Pits and The Farmers Market. I would love to visit Rodeo Drive, but have no idea how I'd make it interesting for an 11 year old boy!
Will it be possible to visit everything that I've listed in 3 days? What would be the best way to do it? Will we need a car (it looks like we can get to most places using public transport but Griffith Observatory would require a car)?
I really appreciate your assistance - the LA portion of our holiday has been sorely neglected until now.
