Bit of help needed please? Spending 3.5 weeks travelling round CA this July/August. 2 ad, 2 teens (16 & 17). Spent a long time working out our route and stops. We have booked 5 nights in Santa Monica (after 3 nights in San Diego and before 3 nights in Santa Barbara). We do have a hire car and were planning to travel into LA/Hollywood etc to do all the usual tourist sightseeing activities either by using the hire car or public transport if it's a better option. However, we had dinner with friends at the weekend who spend a lot of time in CA and they think we will be wasting a lot of time in traffic travelling back and forth so recommended we consider squeezing in a couple of nights in West Hollywood. We can do this as we have a "spare" night at the end of our vacation that we built in to cater for this type of thing and we could cut down Santa Monica to 4 nights. For those with local knowledge, would we be better sticking with our original 5 nights Santa Monica or shall we change to 4 nights SM and add 2 nights in West Hollywood?
Thank you in advance
