How do i use the Metro in Los Angeles while on Vacation?

Hi everyone! Im going to hollywood/LA for spring break next month and i need some help in determining how to use the bus and metro to get to the points of my destination. I have never been on a city bus or subway system so please bare with me. The hotel i will be stayin at is The Hollywood Hotel on 1160 N. Vermont Ave, Los Angeles. The attractions i plan on going to are as follows;
Hollywood Blvd for walk of fame, ripleys museum, hard rock cafe, kodak theatre, etc.
Jim Morrison apartment (8214 w. norton ave), the Whiskey a go go, and the viper room which are all located in West Hollywood
The griffith observatory
Venice beach
the store DASH in Calabasas
Rodeo drive for all the trendy shops to window shop

So, will it be better to take the bus, subway, or cab to some or most of these attractions? I want to take the bus and subway cuz its cheaper. Are there subway systems near all the locations i want to go? Please help me out here, i’d greatly appreciate it!!
Also, are the subway and bus times the same everyday?

Administrator answers:

Try metro.net and you can see what we have. Our “subway” is called the Metrorail. You can buy an all day pass that is good for the Metro buses and the Metrorail systems. It cost 5-6 dollars for all day. Check out their website and print out routes for the places you want to go.The observatory you might like to get on a tour bus. When you are in Hollywood close to the Chinese Theater there are several Tour places that can help you. Star or Starlight comes to mind.

How much are lofts in Los Angeles, CA?

two of my friends and I want to move to LA to go to school since we wanna go for big things, like get into industries. I want to get into the beauty industry or even some type of fashion , && i want to do photography. My friend wants to get into film so we thought LA is a great place if we want to get big and known. but we would be working part time jobs in L.A. going full time to school, but i was thinking i do not think we could afford that so i wanted to work full time and go to school part time even though it would take me a bit longer to finish. (I would be going to cosmetology school by the way)but who knows how much the pay is In LA. since its so expensive to live out there. My friend suggested moving into a loft because it is supposedly cheaper than an apartment. We where In L.A. this past weekend and we were walking in Downtown LA and we saw a lot of lofts that we wanted to check out but we have no idea how much they are. the thing is I am scared because of how expensive it will be to live in LA but i just do not want to give up my hopes and dreams all because of money. but anyways i want to know how much they are and what is the difference between an apartment and a loft, and if you guys could suggest anything that is cheaper or any sugesstions general. thank you i very much appreciate it.

Homes in Los angeles?

Would it be cheaper to rent an apartment in Hollywood Hills, or buy a home? Thanks for the help!

Administrator answers:

The advantage to buying a home right now is that interest rates are insanely low, and real estate prices are also down. Which means that if you buy now, there’s a good chance you could turn a profit a few years down the road. With rent, you’re just handing your money to a landlord. When you buy, you at least wind up with a house at the end of the road.

(Just be sure you don’t buy a “money pit”: a house that needs a zillion repairs, and eats up your cash fixing them.)

Helen asks…

What should we do about our roommate problem!?

My fiance and I share a 2 bedroom apartment with a friend of ours…and up until about 6 months ago, the three of us were really close. Our roommate and my fiance have had some differences recently and they are not close at all anymore.

We live in Los Angeles and apartments are not cheap around here…so moving out is not an issue. Our roommate’s girlfriend comes over and spends the night like 4 nights a week and has done this for as long as we all have been living together.

My fiance and I work overtime to pay for our wedding, a future down payment on a house and other various bills. Our roommate is a Grad Student and is living off of student loans. And his girlfriend does not have a care in the world because mommy and daddy pay for everything.

She pays for NOTHING in our apartment, and my fiance and I are getting sick of her being here a majority of the time and not helping out when we are working our butts off…so my question is…

Should we tell our roommate that we want her to start paying a portion of the rent?
Rent is currently split 3 ways…I pay, my fiance pays, and our roommate pays
When she is here, she does everything here. She eats, showers, does laundry, uses TV and internet…oh, and doesnt clean up after herself! She is a slob!

Administrator answers:

If she is living over there then yes she should pay for the rent. Or the rent should be split in two you as a couple half and them as a couple half. Especially if she is showering, washing her clothes, eating etc over at your house.
You should ask for it, 4 nights is over half a week.

Mandy asks…

I need to move but I dont know where to go?

Im in Los Angeles right now and im looking for a cheap apartment somewhere im paying about 850$ a month for my house Ive considered South Chicago and the Bronx anywhere else that has cheap apartments?

Administrator answers:

Consider Palmdale or San Bernandino. It is near L.A and the rent is chep. You could get an nice apartment (pool, park, community center) for as low as $550 in Palmdale. I was checking the rents in Palmdale and the 1bed 1 bath are $550 to $600 and the 2bed 1 bath are from 800 to 950. NOTE: It is hot.
