I would get a rental car .... public transportation in So Cal is not the best. You might be able to pick up a rental car at one of the hotels and only need it for the one day you are heading to the beach. Or depending on how many are in your party it might be better to just get one for the entire trip rather than messing with a shuttle from the airport. Not sure what airport but if it's Orange County aka John Wayne the drive is easy.Thank you as well for this great thread!
I do have a question, and if I missed it above, I apologize.
We will be staying in the DLR area, but really want to take a day trip to Newport Beach--maybe visit Bilboa (sp?!?) Island and I know we want to go to Crystal Cove State Park. I'm trying to decide if we need a car rental for this trip as otherwise we will be at DLR the whole time. Is there public transport that we could take from DLR to Newport Beach and back, or would that be a real mess of transfers, etc., and we'd be better with a car??
