    Hi to all the LA ladies, and ladies who have been to LA..

    Can you please tell me what are good places to visit in LA.. we are visiting 2 1/2 days there and one day i was planning to go to universal studios.. what other places are good to visit.

    I did check online and lot of results for museums and gardens came up. I would like to know your perspective, what and all is good..

    you can try disney land along with it... If you go to universal and disney land that itself would take you 2 days to roam completely.

    Universal and Disneyland both wonderful! Malibu temple is very beautiful, LA doesn't really have much of a rainy season.

    21/2 days is short, as others said universal and Disney will take at least spending 2 days at Disney.

    My other suggestion,
    Hollywood road near universal studio, Oscar theater is there
    Santa Monica beach - I know it's very cool, try going in day time
    If you want to taste traditional Indian snacks/food, visit artesia

    Thanks Guys.. I have been to disney in orlando.. so not much keen on it...

    one day we are planning santa monica beach, hollywood sign, kodak theatre, walk of fame etc
    2nd day universal
    3rd day - malibu temple...

    is it worth visiting catalina island.. i checked the catalina express is about 30$ approx per head, so pricey. are there any activites in the island..

    Is there anything more that i can see... I'm not too keen on more theme parks, because i dont have that much time, but i think i may have time left for other attractions...

    You can visit Artesia, they have very nice indian restaurants and shops there. Citadel outlets are nice for shopping. Catalina would be good if you are planning to go snorkeling , it is a bit cold for that though. Balboa Island is very nice, it is my favorite beach in OC

    We went in the summer, it is cold now but if there is ever a day when we are over 70 degrees I think it would be worth it.

    510 East Edgewater
    Balboa, CA 92661

    that is the address for the boat rental place on balboa island, basically it is newport beach it is super close to Irvine. I went with my DH and a friend for parasailing there it was nice but I was too chicken to do parasailing. The beach is wonderful there.
