Where to go in your Los Angeles motorhome hire
Just under 300 miles from Los Angeles is the world-famous Yosemite National Park, a must-visit for any Californian road trip. It covers a full 1,200 square miles and includes giant sequoia trees, deep valleys and powerful waterfalls throughout. It's also 4 hours East of San Francisco.
The Mojave National Preserve is another incredible spot that covers 1.6 million acres. It’s about 4.5 hours from LA and is dotted with sand dunes, Joshua tree forests, abandoned mines, canyons, homesteads, and more.
If you have children with you (of any age), a visit to Disneyland in Anaheim just an hour out of Los Angeles is an absolute must, and even the adults will love the fantastical buildings, costumes and entertainment. This is the original Disney theme park with eight areas where you will easily while away a day or two.
Palm Springs is the place to be for sunshine and relaxation, with 354 days of sun per year, hot springs, golf courses, shopping areas and spas.
The Columbia State Historic Park offers an insight into the 1850s when the state was in its gold rush boom. The area is 5.5 hours north of Los Angeles and is a real city as well as an attraction where you can see buildings, costumes and daily life from this era.
For a sea-side excursion, visit the Point Lobos State Natural Reserve 330 miles up the coast from Los Angeles, a drive that will take you roughly 5.5 hours in your motorhome. It’s considered the ‘crown jewel’ of the state parks, and offers one of the best underwater habitats in the world. There are hiking trails, hidden coves, world-renowned diving spots, wildlife such as sea lions, and stunning ocean views throughout.
Further afield is Las Vegas, in the state of Nevada. A great road trip starts with an RV Rental from Las Vegas and finishes in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles motorhome hire throughout the seasons
The summer season of June to August is generally the busiest time when the temperatures reach into the low 80s (Fahrenheit) and the tourists pack in.
Winter is quieter and cheaper, and while it does cool down to the high 60s and rains fairly frequently, it can still be a good time to visit as you won’t have to deal with crowds.
Spring, from March to May, is a perfect time to travel. There are fewer crowds, plenty of events, and the temperatures average around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Similarly, fall from September to November also offers warm but not-too-hot temperatures, fewer crowds and great events.
