Yeah, you gotta 'do' Hollywood Boulevard once if you're going to do the tourist thing.

That's funny because I drove by there when I was down in LA, and I agree with you. I also entered a 7/11 on the corner of W. Olympic and La Cienega at 11 PM, so...

Last time I drove to that area (South Central LA for those of you reading at home) I got off the freeway and there, as plain as day, was a murder scene all taped off and everything.


Then again I had an Aunt that drove her Jaguar every day from Newport Beach to the Compton School District offices every day for over 20 years. The kicker was that she wasn't the least bit scared of driving there every day.

If you're a local, as in an Angelino, you know how to drive through South Central if need be, but tourists freak!

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll be sure to hit up some of those sites. Unfortunately I don't have a car though and my bike can only take me so far. I usually take the bus or the metro system and it gets me within striking distance of my target (I don't mind walking). But the only bad thing is that I can't stay out too late so I really haven't experienced the sensational night life LA has to offer. Its quite disappointing because I hear thats the best part of Hollywood / Sunset Boulevard.

P.S. I have gorged myself with local Californian food though. Places like In-n-Out and Jack in the Box don't exist anywhere else its a shame that 75% of North Americans can't enjoy them.

Im gonna be in Anaheim to see the Red Sox on the 23rd, heading to SAn Diego for that weekend then back to LA to see the Dodgers on that Tuesday and fly home wed....how bad is travel in and around LA/Anaheim and also from Anaheim to SAn Diego?
Last year we went to a sunday game in Ana and it was a pretty smooth ride from San Diego at around 8-9am that took maybe 90minutes, so now w/ my travels coming during the week(but later at night) should i expect some headaches on the roads?

It usually takes about an hour and 20 minutes to get form L.A. to SD. But if there's traffic get ready for a 2 hour-2 1/2 hour drive.

Don't forget, in SD, Del Mar - where the surf meets the turf! Beautiful race track and I think the SD County fair is going at that time. There's a whole day and night right there.

The train runs from LA-SD. Stops at Anaheim Stadium. And Del Mar. It's a party going home from Del Mar.

I think you're at least an hour short here Reap. During Summer it takes forever to drive to SD. I highly recommend taking the train. With one freeway (5) going thru OC-camp pendleton-oceanside-del mar track traffic-tourist that have no clue on what the he11 they'll doing=slow f-ing traffic on weekends.

Trust me, take the train.

You're closer, so you're probably right. I haven't been to SD in 6 months or so.

The county fair already passed (June-July). Also, the Amtrak stops in Old Town on Weekends only for the tourist types.

It's easier to travel by car in between the morning and evening rush hours and at night. If you run into traffic on I-5 head west to the 101 and it's smooth sailing from there.

Ot

In 1970 I worked at the first Jack south of the Mason-Dixon line in No. Virginia.

You could not get any Mexican food in Virginia in 1970. Tortillas came in cans, huh?. I had a major jones for comida mexicano goin on for about 6 mos. Then I found the Jack. I woulda worked for tacos. As it was I making $1.05 an hour, then I was promoted to night supervisor @ $1.10 an hour.
The company actually flew all our tacos from SD.
I spent half my time explaining what a taco was to customers, especially from the Carolina.

Last summer I was visiting and my brother said Jacks is gone from Virginia.
