Los Angeles Travel Guide
It’s hard not to envy those who live in the City of Angels - a fantastic year-round climate, long stretches of golden beach and more cultural attractions than you could shake your skip-the-line ticket at. While the East Coast dashes for cover in snowy winters, LA is awash with sunny afternoons best spend riding the waves or hiking in the nearby national parks. It’s a sprawling city though. To explore it thoroughly, your best bet is nabbing a Los Angeles car rental. Nothing says LA more than driving down the palm tree-lined Sunset Boulevard or Beverly Drive. You never know….you might even catch a glimpse of a celeb.
Dining in Los Angeles
Few places in the states see such a diverse foodie scene. It’s safe to say that Los Angeles packs some serious culinary punch. Hop in your Los Angeles car hire and take a drive out in search of some of the best Latino eats this side of the Mexican border, one of the vegan restaurants (there’s more here than any other city in the country) or no-nonsense Asian eateries that knock out fresh sushi, zingy plates of Thai classics and some of the most authentic Korean cuisine in California. Oh, there’s an enviable nightlife scene here too. Expect rooftop cocktails, beachfront beers and classy wine bars aplenty.
Attractions in Los Angeles
This sprawling metropolis isn’t short on things to do. A good place to start is the early-20th century Santa Monica pier, the end point to the famous Route 66. Alternatively, take a stroll along Venice Boardwalk for gorgeous ocean views. Culture vultures are well catered for in LA. Don’t miss a visit to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) which has a dizzying number of works from national and international artists. Of course, it’s unthinkable for first-timers to skip the Hollywood Walk of Fame and if you have kids, they’d never forgive you if you didn't drive out to Universal Studios in your Los Angeles car rental.
Los Angeles driving routes
If you’ve got plenty of time, why stick to just one city? A car hire in Los Angeles gives you the freedom to explore outside the city. Take the 4-hour drive out across the desert to the infamous Las Vegas where you could try your luck on the slots, catch one of the world-class shows or dine in one of the Michelin-starred restaurants. You know what they say, ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’. When you’ve had your fill of Sin City, continue to the Grand Canyon to catch snaps of one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders.
Los Angeles car rental
While it’s possible to pick one up in the city centre, those sold on a car rental in Los Angeles are best scoring their ride at the international airport when they arrive. The journey from the airport very much depends on where you’re staying at the time you arrive but shouldn’t take you much more than an hour. There are a few things to remember when you’re driving in LA. Traffic keeps to the right and if you’re not sure on the speed limit, the maximum is 25 miles an hour on the city streets and 65 on the highways. Everyone in the vehicle is required by state law to wear seat belts.
