We often think about heading downtown for some entertainment but are always concerned about the traffic and crowds. After enjoying some entertainment at LA Live we always come away with how well designed the facilities are from traffic flow, to parking near the venue, restaurants,...More

LA Live is an island in the middle of downtown LA. It has a decent collection of restaurants, but nothing else. DO not even think about shopping here! TIP: Be careful. If you go just a few blocks you run into camps of homeless people.

There's the Staples Center, the Microsoft Theatre, and numerous, pricey restaurants. the restaurants are ok but the quality seems to be suffer in comparison to the same restaurants in other less touristy locations.

Stop by for a sports event or something to eat, its a convenient walk from the convention center and is safe and clean.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

I'm coming to L.A. this Fri from the UK for a conference so staying in DTLA (Hotel Indigo). My 'plan' is Fri - arrive. Get metro to Hollywood. Few hours tourist stuff, couple of bars, metro back Sat - after conference get metro to Santa Monica, walk to Venice, taxi back to SM, few bars metro or taxi back depending on time. Sun - after conference get metro to Figueroa/190th then walk to Chargers Raiders game. Walk and metro back then evening round L.A. Live. Does that sound reasonable...More

Stubhub is not in a good area. You do not want to be walking from the bus stop at 190th & Fig to the stadium and you do not want to be standing at a bus stop, waiting for the return bus. The return bus runs only once per hour! Use the money that you were going to use to transfer from Santa Monica back to DTLA and use it for an automobile transfer to Stubhub and back. You don't need a taxi between Venice and Santa Monica. There are frequent buses (the Metro 733 comes to mind) or hire...More

I'm heading to the JW Marriott in the fall for a 3-day conference and we're debating whether the spouse and 3-year old should tag along. Being as I'll be occupied during the day, the spouse is wondering what there is to do around the area. I see Grand Hope Park is within walking distance, plus the hotel has a pool. Anything else walkable to keep a 3-year old satisfied? Are there shuttles leaving from this area to other areas of interest? A rental car is out of the questions for these days as...More

Not too much to do in the immediate area, but it is close to the subway to get to Universal, Hollywood or Pasadena and there is also the Starline Hop-on, Hop-off bus that hits all the major tourist areas including the beach areas. There is also the DASH bus to go see Chinatown, Olvera Street and the museums and gardens by USC.

Public transit is certainly less expensive than the HoHo tour. Bus/subway rides are $1.50 each, and $6 day passes are available. Its not the end of the world to go to the Dash store from Orchid Suites on public transit, but it would take about 90 minutes each way. Basically from Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave. near Orchid Suites, take the Red Line subway to the North Hollywood station. There you'd take the Orange Line express bus towards the Warner Center transit hub. Exit the Orange...More
