My husband and I are going to be in LA for a week starting January 18, and we are bringing our 6 month-old baby. We are planning to rent an apartment through Airbnb, and we are wondering which area to stay in. We like good eats, nice cafes, shopping and pretty areas, parks and beaches where we can stroll around with our toddler. We will have a car, so we will be going around town some days anyway, but most evenings will be spent in the apartment because of the baby. Our first choice is Venice, but I also think Silver Lake looks fun. Is SL just for young hipsters, or is it a nice place for a young family to stroll around as well? And Venice: Is it worth staying there even though we cant go to the beach (which I´m guessing the weather won´t allow in Jan)? Do you have other suggestions for us? Thanks!
