Every year, millions of tourists flock to Los Angeles to experience the best California has to offer in entertainment, cuisine and sights.Here’s a few insider tips to get ahead of the game on your next trip to LA.
Rent a Car
With the current state of Los Angeles’ public transportation, your best option to get around is driving. With a car you will be able to get anywhere in LA with ease like a true Angeleno. Take a scenic drive down Mulholland through the Hollywood Hills or take the 405 to the 10 and got off at Lincoln to get a Godmother sandwich from Bay Cities Deli. Try to avoid heavy traffic times, Monday-Friday, 9AM-11AM and 5PM-7PM.
Skip Venice and Santa Monica
While the Santa Monica pier is a must see, but for the beach, there are plenty of nicer alternatives. Try Malibu’s state park Leo Carrillo for stunning beaches, hiking and camping. For a classic California beach town experience, Manhattan, Hermosa and Redondo Beach are just south of LAX.
Yelp is your Best Friend
Whether it’s late night tacos at Taco Zone, sushi from Sushi Gen, a burger from Father’s Office or beef double dip sandwich from Philippe’s, LA offers the best food in California and we love to talk about it. Yelp is a great tool to find great restaurants and what LA locals love.
