Getting to LA

Los Angeles is internationally known for being the entertainment capital of the world, offering a wide range of attractions and activities for locals and visitors.

Most people traveling to Los Angeles, fly into the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). LAX is one of the busiest airports in the world, with annual passenger numbers peaking over 60M people. 

The airport is a hub for major airlines, including Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, and United Airlines. It also provides routes to major international destinations on British Airways, Air Canada, Japan Airlines, and more.

Los Angeles has several major highways passing through the city. Routes such as Interstate-5 and the Pacific Coast Highway. Because LA has so much to offer and a lot of people commute to work from surrounding cities, be aware that it has one of the heaviest traffic you’ll experience in the world. Even with six-lane highways, it’s still common to see traffic jams – especially during rush hour.

Public transportation isn’t as common as in other cities, although there is a metro bus with routes to major areas in the inner city.

The historic Union Station is a transportation hub for the Metro, Metrolink, and Amtrak services - although, it’s not as commonly used, especially for visitors.

Parking in LA

Parking in Los Angeles is very tricky. With so much traffic everywhere you go – whether in the city or near the beaches – it’s nearly impossible to find any, let alone cheap (or free) parking. Be sure to factor in parking fees in your budget when you rent a RV Los Angeles.  

The most common place to park in LA is on the street. The street parking meters range in an hourly price from $0.50 to $6.00. The rates change based on the time of day. Be aware of where you park to avoid parking tickets, getting your car towed, or car crimes. 

An alternative is to find a parking garage, which is more secure than street parking. The LA Live parking garage is a popular place to park that offers deals such as $5 for the first two hours and flat rates of $15 at night.

If you want to explore LA via public transportation, take advantage of the Park and Ride lots along the metro lines. These lots are located in major cities like Burbank and Culver City that offer free parking, and you’ll arrive in LA as quickly as a 20-minute metro ride.

The best time to rent a RV in LA

Weather graph for average temperatures in LA
Average temperatures in LA per month

Los Angeles, also known as LA or “City of Angels”, is located in Southern California and is one of the most populous metropolitan cities in the USA. The city is surrounded by deserts, mountains, forests and beaches along the Pacific Coast; its unique position regulates the temperatures to provide a mild climate in all seasons.

One of the best parts about RV rental Los Angeles is that it is generally sunny all year.

The greatest time to visit LA is from March through May, and then again between September and November. These periods offer enjoyable temperatures and better air quality, along with lesser crowds. 

July through August are the hottest months of the year, with an average temperature of 71°F (22°C). The sweltering temperatures of summer coupled with thick smog tend to drive away visitors during this season. Surprisingly, that’s not the case for LA, as it’s its busiest time. 

Spring, January through April, is the least busy for this Southern California city, it has milder climates, averaging in the 60s (15-18°C). This means, you’ll have lots of sun, but still cool enough to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking.

The winter months of December through February average a temperature of 55°F (13°C) along with frequent rainfall.

LA is a diverse city with lots of cultural activities throughout the year. You’ll see a spike in tourism during November for Dia de los Muertos Festival or Chinese New Year, with a big parade in February.
