4 Questions and Comments

  1. Universal Studios VIP Passes for Family of 4

    Are the VIP skip-the-line tickets for Universal Studios worth buying?

    1. Santorini DaveSantorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Yes, definitely worth buying if they’re in your budget. There are two types of upgraded tickets available for Universal Studios – Front of the Line Tickets (you almost never wait in line for a ride) and the full VIP Experience (which has skip the line plus a behind the scenes tour and free breakfast and lunch). The best prices for tickets are usually found at the Getyourguide website.

  2. Good Area To Stay in Los Angeles for Family

    We are coming end of January 2018 to LA for a week, we have been before, but this time we are coming with our 2 year old son, visiting from the UK. We have no idea where to stay, we want a nice level of luxury, but also a base that is good to travel to the tarpits, the beach, and Disney for one day. Help please!

      There are always trade-offs with where to stay in L.A. and what’s the best location. The Four Seasons is the best luxury hotel for families in the Los Angeles area and only 8 minutes from the tar pits so it’s probably my top recommendation for you. The kids playroom is very well done, nice pool, and an evening camp fire. The Santa Monica pier is 20 minutes away – so not close to the beach, but not too far either. Disneyland is a bit of a trek (40 minutes at best) but since that’s only one day it’s reasonable. (You could also stay in Anaheim for a night or two.)
