LA-Glendale weekend blitz

LA-Glendale weekend blitz

I'm not a very impulsive person, but recently out of the blue I bought concert tickets for my favorite artist performing an exclusive 4 week residency at Complex in Glendale. Trouble is, I'm located in Orlando, FL. ha.

I have a limited amount of time, and so will be flying out really for a three day weekend. Its a long flight for such a short stay, I know, but it is what it is.

My question is, it will most likely be my sister and I. She's doing me a favor by tagging along to the show so I'd like to be able to show her a good time sightseeing on the other day and a half I have there. For such a short stay, will we absolutely need a car? Or are there a few things we can do that we can get by without one? I think I'll be staying very close to the concert venue, so getting to and from the show will be easy. But if she, say, wanted to see some of the LA touristy things, is it possible to jet down to LA proper without a car? What would be the must do's on a trip so short?

weekend cars are quite inexpensive, and you will have taxi or shuttle charges back and forth to Glendale if you don't rent a car........I think it will be worth it. You're flying into LAX airport, or Burbank ?

I have not bought airfare just yet. Waiting on confirmation from my sister first. LAX had the better fare, but Burbank seems much closer to Glendale. I found a good deal on Air BnB a few blocks from the venue.

Burbank is probably worth the connection/stop somewhere but it would depend on how much more the fare is. Burbank is an easy airport from which to rent a car and the drive to Glendale is a cinch. Since your time in the area is so short, you should get a car, waiting for bus transportation to see Hollywood or Beverly Hills or the beach areas would be terrible.
