First Time Visitor from Australia

by platapus


My wife and I are in our early 70's and plan a cruise through the Panama Canal in October 2010. We fly from Brisbane (East coast of Australia) to Los Angeles and then cruise to Miami. We will then do a couple of internal flights within the US and finally return to Los Angeles for the flight home to Australia.

Firstly, we are in need of hotel accommodation for one night preceding the ships departure. I understand the ship will depart from either San Pedro or Long Beach. Can someone please advise how far these locations are from the airport (LAX)? Can they also recommend the name(s) of a hotel I should look at located in either San Pedro or Long Beach

Second, we will stay in Los Angeles for a few nights before we fly back to Australia. I need the name(s) of a suburb close to LAX and again, and the name of a hotel(s) I can look at.

Any other advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

The distance to the canyon is about 280 miles - about 5 hours. IMHO, it's a long day trip from Vegas. Sure you wouldn't consider staying at least one night there?

Here's a website with a variety of tours - from 1 day up-and-back to another that includes Hoover Dam, to an overnight at a canyon hotel (a better choice, I think). I do not recommend the Grand Canyon West Rim and Skywalk. It's not part of the National Park, and Skywalk is overpriced and you're not even allowed to take pictures. You'd enjoy the South Rim of the National Park much more - that's the real experience, and an overnight would allow you to see sunrise over the canyon; beautiful!


There are other tour companies, I'm sure. This one tends to be popular.

Sorry Mike - you had two questions and I posted my answer under the wrong one! Have re-posted in the Vegas forum.

Distance from LAX to Long Beach / San Pedro area is 23-24 miles. Depending on traffic, time of day it takes 30 minutes to an hour to get there. There are some good shuttle services that have regular runs. What price range of hotels are you looking at? There are a string of hotels on Century Blvd between LAX and the 405 Freeway. I am not a big fan of any of them, but I have not stayed overnight, generally only for seminars. Karl

Travel Tips for Los Angeles


by Shakermaker

There are some unwritten laws in LA....well not all the people follow them but most do...
- don't share your car, ride alone
- don't eat inside fast food places, use the drive thru
- if you drop change don't pick it up, just leave it there (i would pick it up though!)

this is just a joke, do whatever you want!!

Greater Los Angeles, on the...

by kuuunmg

Greater Los Angeles, on the southern west coast of the United States, takes in a range of geographical extremes, including a subtropical desert, 75 miles (120km) of sea coast, a pair of offshore islands and peaks that exceed 10,000ft (3000m) in elevation. But the most notable thing about Los Angeles' geography is that it straddles one of the world's major fault zones. The San Andreas Fault - which comes within 35 miles (55km) of downtown LA - and the three dozen lesser faults that run off it have been responsible for five serious quakes this century and dozens of imperceptible quakes every week.

Covering 460 sq miles (750 sq km), Los Angeles takes in 80 incorporated cities. The Santa Monica Mountains separate Hollywood and Beverly Hills from the San Fernando Valley to the north; adjacent Orange County, home of Disneyland, extends along the coast to the southeast. Santa Monica and Venice are on the coast, just west of Beverly Hills, while the international airport is south of Venice. Downtown (where you'll find Union Station, the Amtrak depot) is east of Hollywood, with Watts and Compton to its south. You'll find the main Greyhound terminal east of downtown and south of Little Tokyo. Head west from Santa Monica to get to Malibu.

Basically, LA is a monster of a city to get around. It's a tangle of freeways and sprawling suburbs, where anyone without a car is considered intellectually impaired. If you don't have an automobile and at least a basic understanding of the city's freeways, you'll be seriously disadvantaged. For some areas, even the freeway-savvy need extra help. Beverly Hills and West Hollywood can only be reached via city streets.

cycling police.

by cachaseiro

You might not think of california as a place to cycle, but they actually have cycling police there.
Especially in the beach areas where you can get around easier and faster than by car.
I really like to see that as i am used to danish police who are mostly obese crooners sitting in a car, yelling at the world.
