Making My First Trip to OAK and LA to Watch Rockies, Any Pointers?


This weekend I will making my first trip to watch the Rockies on the road (besides being in school in Missouri and driving the short distance to Busch).  My brother and I are going to the Sat and Sun games in OAK and the Mon game in LA.  We have tickets, hotel reservations (Park Plaza in OAK and Airport Courtyard in LA), and plan to use public transportation/walking to get to games. 

I did some research and looks like Park Plaza is really close to the McAffee Colliseum, so that doesn't bother me much.  We are planning on taking the BART from SFO airport to OAK and getting the hotel's free shuttle from there.  We could always take a cab if the walk doesn't look friendly from the hotel to the stadium.  I am more concerned with getting to Dodger Stadium.  My plan is to get on the Metro near our hotel on Century Blvd near the airport and ride it to Union Station downtown.  I heard it is a bit of a walk from there, and there are no shuttles to the stadium this year.  I'm thinking maybe a taxi would be a good idea, but I don't know how close they can get you or if it would be worth it.

On a side note, any "must-dos" at either stadium?  They are the two oldest this side of the Mississippi, so it will be great to see that 60's architecture! ;)  Look forward to seeing any of you West Coast Rox Fan's at the games!
