In september we are starting our 6 week USA holiday from Australia we initially only have 3 nights in LA before driving to Vegas so are trying to work out the best place to stay to get the most out of a short visit. We are considering either Downtown LA or the Hollywood area, but are open to recommendations.
We will be returning to LA at the end of our trip to visit Santa Monica and hopefully catch anything else we missed at the start.
At this point major theme parks are out as we will be doing most of these in Florida.
Price wise we have budgeted $200/n, but are considering airbnb's as close to the recommended areas.
Any help is much appreciated, and let me know if there's any more info needed.
