If your trip to Los Angeles is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is looking a little empty, we can give you a helping hand.
You may need to ask the boss for an extra week off, because Los Angeles is bursting at the seams with unmissable attractions. First to be checked off your list should be University of Southern California and California State University-Los Angeles. You won't want to miss Hollywood Walk of Fame and Dolby Theater either.
Discover the best of what this place has to offer by adding Walt Disney Concert Hall and Staples Center to your must-see list. If you have an extra day to spare, drop by Microsoft Theater and Los Angeles Convention Center as well.
Plan a stop at OUE Skyspace LA. It's one attraction you'll find on most visitors' to-do lists. If you still have some space on that schedule, U.S. Bank Tower and Los Angeles Central Public Library will keep you amused, too.
Pull out your bucket list, because it's about to get a little longer. Once you've crossed off the sights in Los Angeles, you'll discover a big-name attraction just a little down the road. Wanderers from all corners of the globe make a stop at California State University Fullerton. You can access it from Fullerton, 22 miles away.
Rain, hail or shine, you'll be able to catch sight of the incredible beaches near Los Angeles from the comfort of your own rental car. As you travel along, keep a watch out for seabirds drifting over these stunning stretches of coastline:
Heading to Los Angeles for work-related reasons? After an exhausting day of mingling and making new connections, you might find your stomach shouting out for food. Thankfully, these convention centers offer easy access to some fantastic cafés and restaurants:

Journeying to Los Angeles to finally see Six Flags Magic Mountain and J. Paul Getty Museum? Now that's what you call a dream road trip! But it's smart to give a bit of thought to exactly how you'll get around. Driving in this heaving metropolis can be tricky, so go for something small, like a mini or a compact car. You'll be squeezing past traffic and snapping up car spaces like a local. If you'd prefer to leave the driving for outside the city center, that's fine too. Rent something more comfortable and a little bigger, like an SUV, and discover the sandy shores of Los Angeles County.
First of all, there's a wide variety of both luxury and economy rental vehicles available in Los Angeles. What you go for is largely dependent on how much you want to spend and what you plan to do. Specialty vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to comfort and class. If you want to treat yourself, why not book an elite SUV, or perhaps a slick medium-sized vehicle? Otherwise, if you just need a car to whiz around town in as cheaply as possible, go for an economy vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your wallet).
