Los Angeles - Road Trip Ideas

Fly in, pick up your keys to a cool car rental from Los Angeles airport (LAX), and strap yourself in for a Californian road trip adventure. Renting a car means you can pick the perfect wheels to fit your plans. You could rent an SUV for a round trip taking in majestic Yosemite, then head on to the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe. Or enjoy a one-way rental in a convertible and cruise along Highway 1, going from beach to beach before dropping off your keys in another city. Whether you go east or head north or south hugging the twists and turns of the coastline, the best Los Angeles road trips are just a car rental booking away.

Los Angeles to Las Vegas

Drive from California’s beaches to a desert oasis with a one-way car rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. LAX to LAS is 282 miles, which takes around 5 hours to drive directly, depending on traffic, but it’s much more fun to take your time and stop along the way. From the airport, drive to Santa Monica to stay in a beautiful beach hotel. You could drive to Palm Springs for an oasis of cool pools and cocktails near Joshua Tree National Park or take iconic Route 66 for retro diner stops around Barstow. Nearby Calico Ghost Town is worth a visit and if you stay overnight, the Skyline Drive-in is a must. Cruise through Mojave National Preserve and drive along the Sunset Strip at dusk for a dazzling arrival in Las Vegas, in perfect time to hit the nightlife or hit the pillow in your hotel room!

Los Angeles to San Francisco

The rugged twists and turns through Big Sur along the dramatic Pacific Coast Highway is one of the best drives in the world. Take a car rental from LA to San Francisco for an unforgettable 442-mile drive taking 8 to 9 hours total, but it’s well worth spending a week over. Stops in Malibu and Santa Barbara give you a taste of classic California beach life. Julia Pfeiffer State Park offers thrilling cliff-edge roads and redwood trees. Take a tour of Hearst Castle, an opulent mansion once owned by William Randolph Hearst, and stay in cute Monterey and beautiful Carmel—home to many actors and musicians. The City by the Bay is calling, so drop off your ride and hop on a cable car for a historic end to your amazing road trip.
