I am planning to surprise my 14 year old daughter with a 3 or 4 day trip to LA in Oct. or Nov. before she has major surgery. I want to make this trip special for her. She is crazy about "The OC" and loves reading about the stars. Please give me suggestions on where to stay ( somewhere nice) and where to take her. I'm thinking of Universal. Are there any other studio tours? What age do you have to be to watch a tv taping and do you have to get the tickets in advance? I'm planning to rent a car. Thanks .
