    Hi All,

    I am travelling to LA for short duration on business trip. Sadly I am not getting hotel accommodation. I need some guidance around how i can find suitable accommodation. I need some place around North Hollywood.

    I stay in very reserved society (India) so not yet out in the society. (Have told my parents though.) So I want to make friends and share experiences, enjoy company, roam around LA and be as I really am for as long as I can. US is really land of freedom in that sense. I know it is weird to write this on forum, but this is kind of last chance so took chance!!
    Waiting for your replies.

    Thanks.

    If you are going to have some kind of transportation or can afford to take taxis, get a place in West Hollywood...to give yourself a little break from being reserved. ;)

    Take one of the economical city buses and head out to Redondo Beach. You may choose to either sleep directly on the beach or directly across the street on one of the numerous benches provided specifically for overnight guests.

    Local Police won't bother you?
