Help! Traveling to LA and I need some advice
Since my previously planned trip to see the Coyotes and Kings at Staples in October was cancelled (thank you lockout), I'll be driving out to Anaheim to catch the Coyotes season/franchise finale on April 27th vs the Ducks. The following day I'll be making my first trip to Dodger Stadium to see an afternoon game vs Brewers.
I have never stayed the night in the LA area, and I have no idea what part of town would be the best/safest/convenient. Stay near the Honda Center, Dodger Stadium, or somewhere in between? What's the bar scene like near the Honda Center? Any places around there I should avoid? Any advice for parking at either place...I hear Dodger Stadium parking/traffic can be a pain.
I dont really care about shopping, clubs, or any of the sites around LA. My only goals for the weekend:
#1- drink alot of beer
#2- dont get arrested
#3- dont get mugged/shot/stabbed
#4- enjoy a quiet sports weekend away from the kids.
Any help would be appreciated!
