Hello. Looking for hotel and activity suggestions for a stay in late April (2009). My brother lives in Glendale and we are visiting to see his 1st born. We plan to fly into LAX (although I have been told the airport is a zoo, but for now they have the lowest air fare).
I have mostly been considering a home base accomodation in Santa Monica near the Pier/beach area at moderate rate, but open to any other suggestions please. We might drive down to San Diego or over to Malibu. We are definitely wanting to see the highlights around LA/Hollywood.
Wondering what attractions or amusements would be fun for a family with toddlers. Thought about Disneyland, Legoland, Universal, but maybe there are better ideas.
Thanks so much in advance!!
