I am staying in El Segundo at the Hacienda hotel for 2nts before & after a tour which starts there and wanted to know how the area is for padestrians as I don't want to hire a car, i know I will be getting lots of taxis but would like to walk where possible like to the beach.
Also wanted to hire a bike can I do that from near el segundo? I know you can cycle up to to Santa Monica but how long will it take from El segundo? any idea of cost?
Finally is there a mall or big chain shops like gap in the local area as they are so much cheaper than in england.
Anything else you think i should know would be great!
