Going to Universal Studios Hollywood Alone

I think this Friday I'll arrive in the Burbank area early enough that I could spend most of my day at Universal Studios Hollywood. I've never gone to a theme park solo. Does anyone have any tips? [more inside]

Angelenos, help me walk the walk

I'll keep this brief. I'm currently visiting Los Angeles and would like to participate in the Women's March here on Saturday. I'm a tourist staying in Venice Beach with a rental car and a bike. What would be the best way to get downtown and back for the march? I've asked around and heard horror stories from last year about the transit options: impossible parking and traffic, trains too crowded to board, overstressed Uber and Lyft systems. Are there shuttles I should know about? Better times for the trains? Any ideas would be welcome! Thanks!

We are Europeans, currently live in London, like walking, are fairly bohemian artsy MeFites and don't have a desire to spend all day in a museum. What should we do?? [more inside]

Thoughts on an LA weekend?

My wife and I will be staying Friday night through Monday morning just within walking distance to Universal Studios LA next month. We hope to see a dear cousin and former editor of mine but he may be in San Diego for Comic Con. Our primary objective is Harry Potter first thing on Saturday. We've done a number of LA destinations over the years including the Getty and Norton Simon, Disneyland, the Griffith, even the Museum of Jurassic Technology, I have an interest in baseball and may be able to take in a Dodgers game, depending. We will have wheels. Where might we hie to?

WeHo area on the cheap?

Made a last minute decision to go down to the West Hollywood area for Pride/Resist next weekend. I'll have some unscheduled time there. Any suggestions for sights to see and things to do that are 1. accessible without my own private vehicle and 2. appropriate on a bus/hostel-sized budget? Would prefer to stay within around an hour's walk (totally fine with using transit to get to something awesome, though; will grudgingly take a taxi if necessary). Explicitly queer/gay stuff welcomed but not mandatory. NB, I have never been to LA.

Spending time at Disneyland Vs Universal Studios

Our family of four is going to California in less than two weeks. Our mission is basically to see Disneyland and Harry Potter World/Universal Studios. We have 2 little girls, one in Kindergarten and the other a Fifth Grader. We have six days to spend between these parks. We are thinking about 4 days at Disney/California Adventure and 2 days at Universal/Harry Potter world. Does this seem like the right allocation of days in these parks? [more inside]
