DILEMMAAAA...

I'm planning to take the boyfriend to LA for a weekend in March for his birthday so we can watch the Lakers vs Mavericks game. The problemmmm is... should we fly and rent a car when we get there? Or should we just drive a grueling 6-7 hours? The flight would only be 1.5 hours long...

I hate long car rides, but it is way cheaper. If we flew and rented a car, it would cost about $400 more than if we were to drive ourselves... I mean, it's do-able, but that money could also be spent on something else so I don't know.

Also, does anyone know of any points of interest around LAX? I already know that I want to go kayaking at Redondo beach and go on a gondola ride at Marina del Rey (YAY!) We've already been to Venice Beach, the Santa Monica Pier, & Universal Studios Hollywood... I was thinking maybe Disneyland? But would only one day at Disneyland be satisfying? I know we won't be able to see everything...

I haven't told him yet and I don't think the boyfriend reads my blog so I'm safe! haha.

P.S. I forgot to mention that if we flew and rented a car, the basketball game starts at 7pm on Sunday night, so it probably won't end until 10 at the latest. Then we have to bring the car back to the dealership and then catch our plane at 11pmish which is definitely NOT enough time... We'd have to end up staying another night...

wow, you're going to do all that in one weekend? a basketball game, disneyland, kayaking, AND a gondola ride? well, it's not impossible, but i think if you're going to do that, you should get rid of the 7 hour drive and take a plane instead. you would have more time to knock all those things off of your list. granted, a lot more expensive, but i think it'd be less headache. hope you figure something out soon! =]

i'd rather fly but it depends on if you have the funds to fly. if you're gonna be tight on cash, i'd just wake up early and make the journey by car. i just hate being in a car that long =( about your comment, everyone thinks my mom is my sis. lol.

Wow that's a lot to do in one weekend! Hmmmm I'd choose to fly, 7 hours is pushing it for me... try sites like Priceline for cheaper tickets?
