Ideas for 1st time trip to LA/Santa Monica/Hollywood with 16 yr old

Jump to last reply

My 16 year old daughter is dying to go to Hollywood/Santa Monica/LA area. So I decided to take her on her fall break this September. She wants to do all of the 'touristy" things and shop. She loves shopping for clothes!

We will fly into LAX on a Saturday and fly out either on the following Wednesday or Thursday. We don't have our tickets yet. We will be renting a car and I was thinking of staying in Santa Monica for the entire time and just drive to everything. Good idea? Suggestions for hotels?

She wants to see the Hollywood sign, walk of fame, chinese theatre, SM Pier and everything else. She is not being very specific so I am having a hard time. I think we should go to Warner Brothers and possibly Universal Studios. Both?? We would love to go to a taping of a show. Not sure how to go about getting tickets though. Help! . Does anyone have suggestions on how we should fill our days to be the most efficient? We love to eat healthy and will try anything at least once. Any suggestions on restaurants? We don't mind walking to places. Any good show or theaters? Any suggestions will help. Thanks
