Are you near…..?

“Are you near the airport, Universal Studios, Downtown, Disneyland, Hollywood and the beach?”

We get asked this a lot by guests planning their trips to Los Angeles. But Los Angeles is huge. It is the size of several other cities combined. And that’s just L.A., that doesn’t include all of L.A. county and Southern California. It doesn’t include Orange County and Disneyland. It doesn’t include the desert communities.
