I hardly ever post here, but seeing as I live in Australia every other forum I've been on is Aussie. I think I have the best chance talking to Americans here.
I'm planning a trip to the great US and A!!! I'm so excited. I'm going to be going with my girlfriend (Both just finished uni 23 years old).
What I want to know is where the best place to stay in L.A is. I've already got the New York (Brooklyn) accomodation sorted but I want to know where I should stay in L.A.
Most people have recommended me to stay at Long Beach, but my best friend who has been to America is really recommending somewhere called "South Central" particularly an area called Compton? which I'm not all that familiar with. She is telling me that Long Beach is great in summer but there is nothing to do in winter and that Compton is great all year round.
I really don't know the U.S.A but from what she is telling me Compton sounds great. Are there any beaches nearby there I can visit? And does anyone know the quality of hotels in this area?
Any response would be greatly appreciated.
