          Hi, I'm due to stay here at the end of March. I'm looking into hiring a car when I land at LAX to assist with my travel around LA. I was wondering where the best place would be to park the car overnight as the facilities states there is no on-site parking. Where are the nearest places to park overnight and what do they charge? I'm not too keen on the idea of forking out hundreds of dollars for car parking. I'm there for 4 nights.
