Question

How long in LA??

Hey,

Just wondering what the average number of days to stay in LA is for before or after a tour?? Im doing the Wild Western and it looks like it really only spends a day in LA at the end. Im thinking of stay 4 days after but not sure if this is too much??

    Hey, I’m doing La to the Bay in April and I’m spending 3 days pre tour in LA but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be enough – there’s so much I want to see. I think 4 would be good, maybe even 5? Depends how much stuff you want to do and see??

    I’m going out there on Saturday and 4 nights pretour. Wish I could say it was planned for 4, but it was a combination of recovering jetlag and a cheap flight!

    im doing the wild western winter beginning march, im adding on 4 days at the end of the tour hoping that some one will be doing the same. 1 day for hollywood/universal studios, 1 day to hang out venice/santa monica , maybe a movie star home tour. and see what happens the other 2 days..because la is so spread out it 2 days not enough..la lakers have home games at staples during this time too.

    sounds good! I decided on 2 days prior to adjust to the time diff and then 4 days after to do my own thing! Ur right, so much to see and do and u dont wanna feel u’ve left without seeing something. :)

    Im doing the LA to the Bay trip on 7th december but I also noticed that the tour didnt spend much time in LA so I booked a 3 day tour of LA before my other trip.
