Campervan Rental Los Angeles

Los Angeles where stars come to get famous, surfers come to surf the best waves on the West Coast, and everyone else comes to experience one of the greatest cities in America. LA is a place that has it all – outdoor activities, the Sunset Strip, Venice Beach, landmark museums, theme parks, wineries, breweries, and exciting nightlife.

There are several exciting areas to check out in Los Angeles – each with its own unique characteristics. Hanging out in LA Live downtown or stroll down the Walk of Fame in Hollywood are definitely must-dos. 

Make a stop at the Santa Monica Pier, a great leisure area packed with activities, vibrant street performers, restaurants and stunning ocean views. You can also drive your RV rental to Griffith Park and check out the view of the famous Hollywood Sign.

This city is just the starting point for your California vacation. Rent a campervan and explore the nearby national parks, discover unbelievable landscapes, or camp in vast deserts.

Getting to Los Angeles

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 Los Angeles

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 campervan in 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.
