Hi all - My daughter and I are heading to L.A. for the first time this Thursday through Monday night. We're beyond excited! Our flight arrives at 10:24am on Thursday and we leave at 11:30pm on Monday. So far this is what we have going on:
Flight arrives on Thursday at 10:24am
Get rental car at LAX
Try for an early check in at hotel (if not, lunch somewhere)
Tickets to Jimmy Kimmel
Staying at Hilton downtown, LA
We are set to stay in Santa Monica from Friday through Monday
The things on our list of "to do's" are:
Hollywood Walk of Fame
Santa Monica Pier
The Ivy restaurant
Get a map to see some celebrity homes
Possible Warner bros tour
Farmers Market (is it worth it?)
-Can you advise on the rental car agencies at LAX? Is one better than the other or some that we should avoid? The names are unfamiliar to me.
- Can you guide us on a daily schedule? So we're making the most use out of our time?
- We're hoping to run into/see celebrities. Where are those spots?
- What should we pack in terms of clothes/shoes for 5 days? Sweaters? T-shirts? sandals? boots? Completely unsure on that.
- Also, are we forgetting anything that we should be seeing that we just don't know about perhaps? We will have a rental car so we're open to driving wherever.
I'm 39 and she's 19 and we're open to doing all kinds of fun stuff! Again, it's our first time so we're wanting to get as much in as possible. Hoping to run into and see some celebrities as well :D
Thanks again for all of your input!
We're so excited!!
