Hubby and I are landing in LAX and want to know the best area to stay before we head to Dallas. We will probably check out Santa Monica Pier and the stars etc but not really sure where we should stay and what else we should see. We don't want to spend a heap of money but don't want to stay somewhere dodgey. Can anyone recommend what area that think would suit us eg Hollywood, downtown, Santa Monica etc.
Thanks so much for your help.
