A family of 4 (2 adults + 18yr and 14yr) will be staying at the Marriott for 6 nights in mid August. We ahve a car rental. We have a sort of itinerary and would welcome some tips and advice.
A day out at Disneyland ( I promised so I've got to do it). I gather it could be a couple of hours or more to drive there. We would like to be there early (for 9am - 9.30am) but will leave Disneyland at night about 10pm. I hope the journey time is quicker coming back.
A trip to Beverley Hills, Sunset Strip and Hollywood Boulevard. Seeing the sights and we will probably get the Trolley Tour in Beverley Hills. Is there plenty of parking? We intend to get up to Griffith Observatory before sunset and watch the sun go down and see LA light up.
A trip over to Mailibu one morning or afternoon. Is there a road off the PCH which goes up the mountains which offers a good view?
All the rest of the time we will be around Santa Monica - all the evening for restaurants, shopping and bars...and not forgetting the pier. I have read the rest of this forum for information regarding restaurants and bars...but if anybody has a top tip/recommendation for a restaurant or a bar then I will take note. Is there mini golf nearby?
In advance thanks for any information and advice. Can't wait for August 19th.
