LA Traffic Information

Driving is a major part of the Los Angeles experience. The city is rather spread out so having a car rental in Los Angeles is the ideal way to get around. As you make your way to all the fabulous attractions be prepared to encounter the famous traffic of LA freeways. We recommend including a GPS to your rental vehicle so you can make your way around using backstreets if necessary. It is also important to know that speed is monitored by red light cameras and a photo of your license plate number will be taken to fine you for speeding.

When you rent a car in Los Angeles it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the main freeways. The famous 405, often referred to as Santa Monica Freeway, is known for its scenic views. Running through the greater Los Angeles area the 405 runs along the Pacific Coast and connects to the Ventura Freeway, also known as Route 101 or I-10. This major freeway also offers access to Culver City, Westfield Mall, and more. These routes do tend to suffer from congestion, so another option is to drive I-5 which runs directly through Downtown LA.

Sightseeing in LA Year Round

Besides attractions relating to the film industry like the star-studded Hollywood Boulevard or Universal Studios, Los Angeles is home to an impressive selection of museums. The city actually has more art centers per capita than any other city in the world, totaling 841. Stop by the fantastic Los Angeles County Museum of Art or the Getty Center, one of the most visited museums in the country thanks to its unique design and location on the hills looking over the city. Santa Monica Pier is a must visit with its iconic entrance as well as family attractions such as the solar-powered Ferris wheel, aquarium, the original 1920s carousel and much more. Other unmissable seafront attractions and beaches are Venice Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Redondo Beach.

Winter 2020: What to Do in LA

Winter in Los Angeles is not beach season, but the temperatures are more manageable. You can expect weather in the 70s getting down to the upper 40s at night in some areas from January to March. Also, be prepared for rain. Milder weather means you can do things outdoors like going for a hike in Griffith Park for views over the city. On rainy days you can head to the Getty Center to see some art, or the Natural History Museum to see the dinosaurs. If you do need some snowy winter weather, you can head out of the city to ski resorts at Big Bear or Mountain High, both about a 2-hour drive.
