Los Angeles is a popular tourist destination throughout the year, but particularly so in the summer months. It is recommended to book car hire Los Angeles Airport vehicles well in advance of travelling, if requiring a specific make of vehicle or additional items like child booster seats or roof luggage racks, as they are subject to availability.
The urban sprawl that is Los Angeles is best discovered by car. Very distinct districts make up this city, where English and Spanish are spoken in almost equal measure in some parts. Cosmopolitan and multicultural, Los Angeles offers tourists a taste of all countries of the globe, with areas like China and Tai Town, Little Armenia and Little Italy being just some examples of the diversity that exists.
Perhaps most famous for its Hollywood inspired theme parks and tinsel town itself, Los Angeles has much to offer to tourists, not least of all sunshine and blue skies at Venice Beach Promenade and Griffith Park, a marvellous place for hiking and enjoying spectacular views. The Hollywood Walk of Fame and the various themed bus tours offered throughout the city allow tourists to catch a glimpse of how some of the world’s most famous actor live. Children will no doubt pester their parents to take them to Disneyland and after a long day little ones and grown ups will be happy to drive away under their own steam in a rental car rather than having to negotiate crowded public transport.
Los Angeles also has museums and art galleries to offer that have world famous collections and hiring a car will allow tourists drive along the coast to enjoy the amazing beaches or travel inland through the orange groves that give Orange County its name.
The city enjoys some 260 days of sun shine throughout the year and only has some 35 days of rain, which falls mainly in the winter. Temperatures rarely sink below 20 degrees Celsius even in winter and the summer months can be very hot, exceeding even 30 degrees Celsius at times.
Los Angeles Airport is situated some 16 miles 26 km from the city centre (downtown), in the south-western district called Westchester. The Century Boulevard exit on Interstate 405 connects Los Angeles with the airport, as does the Sepulveda Boulevard exit or State Route 1 on the Interstate 105.
