One day in LA

Hi there, I'll be in LA for one full day. What would you suggest for a good day out? I'm a woman travelling on my own so I need to feel pretty safe!

Where will you be? Are you staying over and if so, where? Will you have a car?

Hi again yogachik,

I'm arriving early in the morning and staying one night near the airport, to leave for the Grand Canyon early next morning. So I'm staying in Inglewood. Will drop my case off at the hotel and then want to make the most of my day. I wont have a car.

Inglewood is an unsafe neighborhood. Change your hotel. You have received very bad advice to stay here.

If you won't have a car, change your hotel to somewhere like Santa Monica where you can easily walk around. Your public transit options from Inglewood are limited and unsafe.

Santa Monica would be a very good place to visit (and stay). If hotels prices are too high, look at Manhattan Beach or El Segundo, both near the airport and safe areas.

Which hotel in Inglewood are you staying at?

The Hacienda Hotel in El Segundo might be a better location, and you could pick up a tour from there.

Do not stay in Inglewood. CHANGE your hotel!
