I'm flying into San Diego on 3/16, staying 2 nights there, renting a car, then driving to LA and flying out of LAX on 3/23.
It will be myself and my girlfriend (both 23). We might meet a few friends who will also be in LA during the week, but will mainly just be the two of us. We like seeing the sights, doing the typical touristy stuff, but we also like going off the beaten path a little.
I've been to LA quite a few times, but I'm always looking for new things to do. As of now, I have a room reserved at the Hollywood Historic Hotel for an amazing rate. From everything I read online, this is a decent hotel. Obviously nothing special, but I really don't plan on spending much time there aside from sleeping. Any personal experiences with the hotel?
Aside from that... the only solid plans we have are to visit Disneyland (probably Wed or Thu), taking the WB Studio Tour, and going to see a taping of Craig Ferguson (both probably on Tuesday). Aside from that, not a whole lot planned as of yet.
We do want to hit up some bars for some drinks some nights. We're not really into the super nice places where its $10 per drink. We're just as comfortable in the dive bars with cheap drinks. My favorite bar in NYC is Rudy's if any of you have ever been there to give you an idea. So any suggestions on where to get cheap drinks in a somewhat decent place would be great. Like I mentioned earlier, we'll be in the Hollywood area for the most part. Not strictly limited to there though.
Any places you think we should check our or any general tips for the trip?
