Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.

  • I have gone hiking here a couple times. It is quite wonderful. The views are breathtaking and it is a good place to just get away from the city and walk with nature.
  • This place is incredible!! My favorite time of the year the spring because the air always has that fresh crisp touch to it. Soothes your soul when you breathe in. One of my favorite places in the Bay Area to visit.
  • Beautiful views from Eagle Rock and Mesa Parker Overlook. I you can see from the city to Point Dume. Trails are well maintained. We hiked and ran, but the main path is bike-friendly; would be a good way to see more in one day.
  • Love tapanga canyon enjoyed lots of hiking early 2000's moved away miss it very much all you guys out there that's enjoying it now have a hike for me
  • Great for hikers, beginners to advanced. You choose how many miles you want to walk and also decide altitude gain for a great cardio workout while you enjoy the beauty of this place.
