L.A intimidates me! It's so vast.... I've travelled through 47 countries and my fiance and I have no idea where is best to stay. I am wondering if there is anyone out there that would like to rent a room out for 5-6 days or knows of someone who does homestays. I don't like being a tourist as such- I love getting to know locals and sharing experiences. It's also far nicer when local knowledge is shared. Otherwise please feel free to suggest which area/place is best to stay in- some say downtown, others say stay well away. In the meantime, I'll read through the mountain of messages posted here to give me more info.
Thank you in advance.
