We're heading over from Oz for 6 week trip to US in June 2014, starting in LA for 4 days.
I lived in RI about 20 yrs ago so am very excited to be coming back now with my husband and two kids (7,12).
Am not sure if we should stay at an LAX hotel, or Anaheim which looks cheaper and nicer. Plan is to give us a few days to recover from jet lag before we continue on with our trip, and for my husband to take our little fella to Legoland. I know Legoland is a long way from LA, but after our 14 hour flight from Sydney, and having a daughter with special needs, we can't add a long drive to the journey, probably Anaheim is far as she'll cope with. Thought that at least Anaheim is a little bit closer to Legoland than LAX so bit easier for the boys.
Hubby keen to visit Venice Beach but otherwise we're not planning the usual D/land, U/Studios, H/wood touristy stuff as just need quiet few days with easy access to restaurants and a supermarket (son has allergies so I need to make his food).
Would really appreciate your advice on LAX vs Anaheim or any other suggestions for area to stay. Have done lots of hotel searches but don't know the broader LA area.
Thanks so much xx
