Hello all,

I've been looking around for a place closer to Santa Monica for work, and a few nice apartments have shown up for me. One I'm considering is in West Hollywood, but I'm wondering what the drive is like. Is taking the 2 pretty smooth, or stop and go?

Longest way ever is through Beverly Hills....especially in traffic. Did the touristy thing for people more than once so they could see different sites and Lordy, they got loads of pictures, though.

I've always found San Vicente Blvd to be the EASIEST/fastest way to get to/from Santa Monica, but it ends right at Barrington/Federal... you could always take Santa Monica Blvd to SVB though. SMB is typically stop and go.

You can check google map traffic and set it for the time that you expect to be commuting. Typically it's not so great, IMO.

It may be better to take the Santa Monica freeway\ 10 even though it is a ways from West Hollywood. The only other options are surface streets [Sunset\ Santa Monica\ Pico] and they are horrible during rush hour.
