Hop On Hop Off Double Decker Buses are so much fun! If you want to save yourself the trouble of driving everywhere and being stuck in that thing called L.A. traffic, please do yourself a favor and get a ticket! These buses take you to all of the hot spots like Universal Studios, Santa Monica Pier, Venice, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Downtown L.A., and West Hollywood! Although they can't take you to every single place in L.A. they can get you pretty darn close so you have to do minimal walking, but at least they take you to all of the touristy areas! What I found so enjoyable about taking these buses was sitting on the top! It's a double decker bus so you have the option to feel like you're riding in a convertible as you cruise through the city. In addition, you get free headphones that plug into an outlet next to your seat. You can listen to a sassy British guy tell you about the history of the different stops and some fun facts as you cruise along the road. It is extremely informative and now I feel like I could take over his job since I learned so much about the city during my ride. The only downside is that these buses run every 30 min- an hour so plan accordingly! You could be stranded for a while if you don't know the bus schedule!
