Use Google Maps to determine fastest way around town - you do not want to get stuck in those freeway traffic jams! Sometimes the fastest route uses side streets.

Act like a local. Don't focus on being a tourist and going to all the tourist locations. Imagine you are leaving here already, go to the small ma/pa shops. Hang out in the parks. Explore the local events that are happening around town. Don't just be an outsider, traveling around on a tour bus briefly stepping into the community. Be one with the community and you'll have an amazing time.

For any visitor, it becomes abundantly clear pretty early on that Los Angeles is a car city. A common opinion around LA natives is that you'd have to crazy to not use a car to get around. Reason for this is that the city and most of its' different attractions are spread out. You can get by using a combination of public transit and/or Uber but expect to spend a lot more time moving between places. A 30 minute drive between Hollywood and Santa Monica will take around 3 times that long with a bus. Traveling by car in LA is usually a enjoyable experience. There's some great drives around the area even though you stick to the highways. It's generally recommended to avoid the biggest rush hours which tend to be the busiest commuting times between 7 and 9AM and 5 to 7PM and Saturday early afternoon. Traveling in less busy times of the day also gives you the added benefit of being able to find free parking next to popular tourist destinations. For example it's possible to find free parking around Hollywood's walk of fame on weekdays before 6PM.

Try to stay at hotels that are close to the ocean. LA is a very busy city, so try to avoid unwanted traffic. San Diego is very beautiful, so put it in your plan. It is really worth it.
