2 days in LA: Sightseeing without a car?
May 30, 2014 3:11 PM Subscribe
I will be in Los Angeles for a couple days next week and have a bit of free time in between some appointments. I won't have a car, I plan on taking the shuttle to my hotel. I'm staying at the Crown Plaza in Beverly Hills. I will be getting in around 11am on Tuesday, but then don't have "anything" to do until 7pm. The following day I will have the afternoon free after 2p. My flight home is Thursday at 5pm, so I in theory have the morning.

Part of the time I'll have to have my luggage with me though, so that could make things complicated. For instance, hotel checkin isn't until 3pm and I get in at 11am. I could just sit in the hotel lobby, but that seems boring. I plan on bringing one carryon bag, though I might try just a back pack. But I need to bring certain things with me that might require a carryon bag amount of space. Ideally, I'd want to get to the ocean at some point (I really just need to put my feet in the ocean anytime I'm near), but I don't know how feasible it is.
This is on a pretty tight budget, so I'd be more interested in exploring and just seeing LA, having never been there. But I have mobility issues, specifically that I tire pretty easily. I was turned on to using the bus system thanks to AskMe, so I'm hoping to make use of it rather than taking cabs.
Is there anything with my limited schedule I can see while I'm there? Anything I *should* see? I think I'll be in the Beverly Hills area. I have no idea what to expect in terms of accessibility, walking, places to rest. And anything I should avoid, or types of situations to watch out for?
