Los Angeles travel tips

1) The opinion that it is impossible to move around Los Angeles without a car is a stereotype

It is quite possible to get around the city by public transport. Buses and the metro run every 10-30 minutes on weekdays and a little less often on weekends. One metro or bus ride costs $1.75. If you are in Los Angeles for only a few days and stay in the city centre, there is no point in renting a car.

2) Check whether you’re lucky to join Dine LA, the top restaurants’ festival in Los Angeles

Twice a year, in January and July, Los Angeles hosts two weeks of Dine LA, when the city's top restaurants prepare a special menu consisting of the best dishes and put a fixed price on it. Lunch usually costs $25-29, and dinner $40-50. Check the dates for the next two weeks to experience fine dining at low prices.

3) Go for a hike from Los Angeles to spend a day in nature

Around Los Angeles, there are many hiking and running trails, for example, Runyon Canyon. It has well-marked routes. Also, you can go to Caballero Canyon, Fryman Canyon Park, or Los Liones Trail that are even easier.
