We will be coming into LA Saturday the 5th of July (driving from San Diego, probably afternoon-time) to spend a day and a half before heading back to NY on the 7th. This leg has been the most challenging part of our trip, so I could use a lot of help! We are a family of 5 (kids are 11, 11 and 17).
The kids would like to see the usual touristy stuff (Hollywood) - do you think we should book a tour? I looked at a few of the top tours here on Tripadvisor, but really don't want to do a $7-800 private tour. Any suggestions?
I am considering the WB Tour (kids are huge Harry Potter fans and would love the car). I know it is a bit of a drive, but we will have a car.
Since we will only have Sat afternoon - Sunday all day - Monday morning (not really time to do anything, flight leaves 1 pm) do you recommend we stay near LAX, or elsewhere?
Right now I feel like this part of our trip is all over the place, so ANY tips are appreciated!
