I will be visiting the USA for the first time in october and will be spending about 2 weeks there.
The first part of the trip will consist of New York but we are still deciding to do for the remaining days.
We are now thinking of flying over to LA (yes i know it;s a long plane journey) but i would like to know a bit of info if you can help me.
Firstly, what is the weather generally like in October? One thing we would be keen to do on any trip to LA is to check out some of the beaches and surrounding towns, so places like Santa Monica, Long Beach and such places. Would it be sufficiently warm at that time of year to spend some time on the beach?
Secondly, advice on where to base ourselves. We will have a car so can drive anywhere but ideally we would like a to be based as centrally as possible to all the main areas.
