I'm going to LA for the first time (from Vancouver, Washington), only there Sat. 5/19 p.m. to Tues 5/22 a.m.
Female flying down alone SAT 5/19. my brother and sister-in-law joining me Sunday afternoon. I’m currently booked at Comfort Inn Cockatoo Near LAX Airport in Hawthorne. (Brother and SIL are staying near the convention center Fri and Saturday nights, then will join me for the remainder of the visit)
At this point I'm booked at Comfort Inn the whole time. In reading older posts (2-years or more), it looks like maybe we should reconsider the accommodations.
I'm on a tight budget, but don't want to trade safety for $$$. Currently booked at $98/per night.
Would appreciate any advice.
Advice for things to do and see would also be appreciated.
Willing to drive a ways to see/do. Looking for sun, sand, water, fun. Any advice? Where to go/ What to do/see? (like country dancing, but am betting I won't find that down there) Only thing planned "to do" is maybe universal studios. I wouldn't mind some beach time.
