Hi,
im thinking of staying downtown in LA near to the walk of fame, chinese theatre etc.

How far is this from Malibu & Venice beach as I want to do a little surfing if possible.

Can I walk or is it a good taxi ride?

Also which is the better of the 2

thanks

Its quite a journey from Hollywood to Venice Beach and even further to Malibu. Not sure how much a taxi is as I rented a car whilst there.
I spent most of my time in Malibu and Venice Beach (I love Venice Beach!) as I was there surfing too. Santa Monica is nice too. I found that spending just a few days in downtown LA and Hollywood was enough for me.

tallbird,

Malibu is much fruther (you definitely can't walk and a taxi would be expensive). Venice beach is not that far, too far to walk (especially carrying a surfboard), but you could take a bus.
