This week I’m going to LA for the first time, by myself. People in LA: if I’ll only be there for about a day (getting in Friday afternoon, leaving Sunday afternoon) is it worth it to rent a car, or is getting a taxi fairly easy? I’ll be in the Burbank/Studio City area with one jaunt to Hollywood. I’m under 25, and I’ve heard it is really hard to find a place to rent you a car if you are under that age, and either way I’d like to avoid having to park and drive in LA. I’m not super worried about the price because I’m used to paying New York cab fares. Two of my friends that I’m visiting have cars and are willing to pick me up, but I won’t be with them the entire time, so I’m trying to work out an alternative.
Also, is there anything fun to do in that area if you’re alone, especially in the mid-day? That’s the only time I’ll be by myself and I’d like to spend it doing something rather than sitting in the hotel room.
