I will be in LA from 9/17-9/19, 3 full days, travelling on 16th and 20th. Unfortunately, the Dodgers are on the road, so I'd like to visit for a stadium tour. I will have a car, but would prefer to take metro rail, and don't want to bother with a bus. I don't think there's an express because there is no game during those days. I am in my mid-30's, and will be making the trip with my wife in early 30's, and son in early 3's, so we'll have a stroller. I have a simple question: how is the walk from Chinatown station to Dodger Stadium? Google Maps shows it as a 0.7 mile walk, and there are sidewalks throughout, so it seems reasonable (although a bit uphill, but I wanted to see if there was something I am missing.
I will be coming from Wilshire/Normandie station, and if metro rail is doable, will combine the Stadium trip with Cali Science Center and a stroll by the Disney Concert Hall. If driving is better, will be combining it with drive to Griffith Park for the zoo, trains, and the observatory. Oh, while I'm at it, might as well ask another question that I probably know the answer to. Museum of Natural History here is pretty much the same thing as the one in NY, right?
