A travel budget is a must. Don’t waste money on things you don’t need, but it’s okay to splurge. Book a night at one of Los Angeles more posh hotels or check out some of the more high-end restaurants that LA is known for. It’s okay to look for deals and save money, but don’t miss out on great experiences or walk 10 miles to save a couple bucks.
There’s more than just Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). LAX is the best-known and busiest airport in LA, but there are lots of flight options. You can find affordable alternatives at Burbank (BUR), Orange County's John Wayne Airport (SNA) and Long Beach (LGB). SafeRide Transport can provide airport car services from LAX, BUR, SNA, and LGB. If you're headed to Long Beach, we have a travel guide for that, too.
In fact, the city of Los Angeles is multiple cities split into the Valley and the Basin. The Valley includes the warmer northern suburbs and the Basin includes the beachfront towns on the Westside, south of the Santa Monica Mountains. Neighborhoods like Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and West Hollywood are actually separate cities that are sandwiched in the middle of LA. Make a plan and visit all the different iconic spots that the Los Angeles area has to offer.
Remember that there are 70 miles of coastline in Los Angeles… that’s a lot of beach. Most people only think of Santa Monica Pier and Venice Boardwalk, but Los Angeles is full of amazing beaches. From the cliffs of Point Dume State Beach to the sunsets at El Matador State Beach, there’s a beach that’s great for you. Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach are perfect for rollerblades, bicyclists, and runners. Explore all the beaches LA has to offer.
Because Los Angeles is so spread out, unlike most cities downtown is not the best place to start for a tourist. It’s not quite the same sort of bustling city filled with historic landmarks and great shopping you’d find in New York. It’s not a bad downtown, but definitely not the best place to start for visiting tourists. There are some great locations to visit still including Grand Central Market, Little Tokyo, and Walt Disney Concert Hall.
We like to think of LA is beach time all year long, but the parts of Los Angeles can have very different temperatures throughout the year. Santa Monica is often cooler than downtown Los Angeles and Pasadena can be even hotter. Know the weather of particular areas you plan to travel.
You used to need a car and fight the notorious freeways yourself, but ridesharing services have changed how people travel in Los Angeles. However, there are still other great transportation services available in LA that you may not know about. Public transportation systems include six Metro lines and two dedicated bus ways. SafeRide Transport also offers a variety of luxury sedans, SUVs, passenger vans and stretch limousines. Vans and SUVs are perfect for group transportation in LA.
