Best time to take a vacation to Los Angeles

  • Best Time to Go

    Los Angeles is known for its year-round warm temperatures, but the ideal time for travelers to plan Los Angeles vacations is during the late fall. In November, the city is relatively smog-free and clear, which offers perfect weather for outdoor excursions and tours. In late summer, hotel rates are quite expensive due to the large number of tourists who come to the area, so the best time to reserve Los Angeles travel accommodations is fall or winter when rates are more affordable. Many of the city’s annual events are held in May, including the Valley Greek Festival and Earth Day WorldFest.

Insider tips for Los Angeles travel

  • Hollyhock House

    Book a public tour of the Hollyhock House, a private residence designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

  • San Gabriel Mission

    Plan a trip to the San Gabriel Mission, a massive church dating back to the late 18th century.

  • Los Angeles County Museum of Art

    Tour the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which offers a “Pay What You Want” admission special after 5 p.m. every day.

  • Griffith Park

    Visit Griffith Park, an outdoor green space home to hiking trails, children’s train rides, and the Los Angeles Zoo.

  • Off the Wall

    Enjoy the vintage Hollywood memorabilia at Off the Wall, a novelty museum located on Melrose Avenue.

Los Angeles highlights

  • Los Angeles highlights
  • Griffith Park Observatory

    When people talk about seeing the stars and heavenly bodies on their Los Angeles travels, they're rarely thinking astronomy. To see stellar bodies that have aged naturally, head to Griffith Park Observatory. Entry is free, but for an extra treat you can pay just $7 (even less for students, kids and seniors) for entry to the Samuel Oschin Planetarium.

  • Venice Beach Boardwalk

    If strutting your stuff was an art form, Venice Beach Boardwalk would be a world-class museum. For the cost of a hot dog and a beer, you can spend an afternoon of your Los Angeles vacation watching characters play out their dramas, comedies or action films … at least the ones they're starring in inside their heads.

  • Getty Center

    This museum is famous for a few reasons. Firstly, the art collection is incredible, featuring everything from manuscripts and photographs to paintings and sculptures. Secondly, since the Centre is nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, the view takes in the LA skyline, the ocean and the Bernardino Mountains. Add to this the fact that entry is free and you've got yourself a date on your Los Angeles vacation.

  • Hollywood Forever Cemetery

    If you're into Old Hollywood, it doesn't get much older than those stars already six feet under – many of whom are resting in peace at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Throughout the summer, patrons can enjoy classic films under the stars. Check out Cinespia's website for show times and details.

  • La Brea Tar Pits

    Forget Jurassic Park – the La Brea Tar Pits are the real deal, with over three million fossils. The pits contain woolly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers and ground sloths that were trapped in the asphalt that's been leaking out of the ground for the past 40,000 years. The exterior of the pits is free to the public, but for a small fee (under $10) you can head into the complex and learn all about the process.
