Thanks to everyone that helped me plan my Son's college visit trip.
We packed in 3 College Visits and 4 Misc tours so we were busy and we already miss that awesome weather after returning to Texas today at 98'.
Really good things: Ritz Carlton LA Live, very nice, did the Club Floor so we didnt spend time finding places to eat. Travel with children you can grab a Banana or water bottle anytime of the day so upgrading to the lounge was very convenient. Very healthy choices of eats as well (cheeses,nuts,yogurts, fruit)
TMZ Tour was a blast, it is a new tour but very funny and worth the money. It is part of the Starline Tours.
Grammy Museum-Right down the street from the Ritz, decent for about 30 minutes, not really my thing but very well done,.
WB Tour-Very nice and thorough, the boys love the Car Museum the best. Very professional and worth the money
Surf Lessons-used I love Surf LA-my son loved his instructor and he spent a good 1.5 hours with him in the Ocean.
Shutters on the Beach-our last 3 nights, very cozy and beautiful. I saw a little bit of snootiness but not much and the rooms with a partial view were fabulous. You can actually bathe or even lay in your bed and still see the ocean. We ate at the Coast several times, the food was reasonable for Shutters :) and you could sit at a table with an open window. Great people watching. The only thing I thought was over the top was when I asked to sit a Shutters chair on the sand by the beach to watch the Surf Lessons, I was told it would cost 30.00 per person to take a folding chair on to the Beach. When you are paying 575.00 a night, really?
We had to try Inn N out Burger and I hate to admit it but we went twice in the 5 days. We had good service at both locations and what a deal, 3 Burgers for 11.00!
We met our TMZ Tour at the Chinese Theater so we had time to browse the touristy things like Walk of Fame and Kodak. I can honestly say we did that in15 minutes and that was enough.
Thanks again and I am so jealous or your weather!
