I want to visit multiple places in Los Angeles and I would like to know is it recommended to get a rental car or public transportation?
Rent a car. All the airports have rental cars and there are several apps that show live time traffic. Traffic is always difficult and you are going to cities that aren't too close to one another, maybe an hr in rtraffic. If you're ok with that then a rental will be fine over 6 years ago
Los toros!! Best bean dip and margaritas in the valley no question. Fri and sat have lines but well worth the wait over 6 years ago
Besides the normal stuff...horseback riding under the Hollywood sign, riding the roller coaster at the Santa Monica pier, day trip to Catalina island from long beach(takes about an hour to get there and you can spend the day playing on the island), movie at Hollywood forever cemetery, la river kayak tour, la zoo, studio tours of paramount, Warner brothers or universal (part of the day at the theme park), Getty house in Malibu, Huntington library. Art walk in downtown la Thursday nights. Those are some places that are easy to do. over 6 years ago
