I will be traveling to LA area this sunday (1-8-06) and will have 1 full day before a confernce and this is my PLAN... does it sound feasible, and do anyone have any suggestions to 'tweak it'. my goal is sight seeing, not muesums or swimming. I want to take pictures and video as much of the sights as i can. I am flying into Santa Ana (conference is in Irving). I get in at 7 pm sunday night. I am going to rent a car and the plan is to drive to Hollywood (and should I take the coast or go the freeway thru LA?) and stay the night at the Hollywood Orchid Suites. I will get up first thing Monday morning and take a 2 hour Hollywood Star Homes tour from the Chinese Theater on the earliest tour. Get done with that and spend a 'little bit of time' walking the hollywood walk of fame. I will then check out of the hotel and drive to the coast and either take it up to Malibu (if this is something I dont want to miss..feedback please..) or just take Pacific coast highway south, stopping briefly at santa monica and checking out the pier (anything else there to see that I shouldnt miss?), then continueing down, with brief picture stops at venice, long beach, huntington beach, newport beach, laguana beach, marina del ray (not in that order of course) and eventually arriving back at Santa Ana, returning the car and getting an airport shuttle to the Hilton Irvine. I will be at a conference a couple of nights and then will have Thursday late afternoon and evening free and would like any suggestions for waht to do in that area that evening (could rent a car for the night again).. Does this seem doable? and/or is there anything else I should include or delete or any tips. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
