To see the best (and worst) times to visit, please read our reviews of our recommended places to stay
By Public Transport: Good network of public transport - this includes a bus network, a subway and light rail system. The commuter rail system Metrolink links LA to all neighbouring counties and many suburbs.
By car: We recommend hiring a car, despite congestion in central LA. See our car rental recommendations. Valet parking is a quintessential LA experience! Major linking highways from LA include Interstate 5 which runs south to San Diego and on to Mexico, and to the north as far as Canada via Sacramento, Interstate 10 goes eastwards all the way to Florida, US Route 101 heads up to San Francisco.
