If you're using Los Angeles International (LAX) as a jumping off point for a fun vacation, rest assured that L.A. has no shortage of fantastic activities and sun-drenched beaches. Not only is navigating the city easier with a vehicle, but a car rental allows you to sit back and enjoy some famous drives; head up the scenic Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu's Surfrider Beach to soak in the sun, or to the Getty Museum to experience some culture. With famous theme parks like Disneyland and L.A.'s legendary entertainment centers in Hollywood and Burbank, a trip to the City of Angels is never boring.
From LAX, Highway 1 is a convenient way to access northern fun spots like the Santa Monica Pier, and southern attractions like Long Beach's Queen Mary. Interstate 405 and the Century Freeway border LAX, make easy connections to the city's intricate web of freeways. Spend the day wandering Hollywood's Walk of Fame and take in a musical at the Pantages, or head to downtown L.A. for games at Dodger's Stadium and the Lakers' Staples Center. Those interested in music can catch a performance at the Disney Concert Hall.
The flight from Sacramento International Airport (SMF) to LAX is a quick 90 minutes, and the airport is a popular hub for travelers heading to destinations east of California. Fortunately, LAX is filled with eateries, shops and art exhibitions that help layovers pass by pleasantly.
