Peak season

On the surface shamelessly pretentious, loud and glitzy, take cheap flights to Los Angeles and you’ll discover a fascinating cosmopolitan metropolis beneath the city’s veneer. Los Angeles has a plethora of iconic sights up its sleeve, including the neighbourhoods of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive. Not surprisingly nightlife, restaurants, shopping, sunbathing and celebrity spotting are high on the list for first time visitors. Los Angeles’ Mediterranean climate offers abundant sunshine and mild weather year round. Peak season is summer with temperatures averaging 24C to 29C. Head to the coastal towns of Santa Monica and Venice Beach to cool off if the city gets too hot and smoggy. You’re unlikely to save money on flight tickets and accommodation at this time. February is also best to avoid for the annual Academy Awards, unless you’re a die hard celebrity watcher.

Off Season

Los Angeles doesn’t really have an off season, the city is always busy and lively but if you had to choose one it would be January as it’s typically rainy. December to February, excepting Christmas and New Years’, should produce good deals on flight tickets and hotels if you do your research and book early.

When is the best time to book a flight to Los Angeles?

Spring (March to May) is a great time to book flights to Los Angeles. Timing your visit to the City of Angels in Spring means comfortable temperatures in the mid to late teens, plus less rain and smog. You’ll also find accommodation is discounted in the Spring. Autumn is another good time to go with temps in the late teens and early 20Cs. The weather is still warm enough for swimming and sightseeing is much more pleasant. Plan a couple of months in advance for cheap flights to Los Angeles and great deals on hotels.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Los Angeles?

Monday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Los Angeles. Flying on Saturday will result in higher flight prices.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Los Angeles Airport (LAX) is 30 km from downtown Los Angeles and is a large busy airport. However, ground transport is well organised with shuttles between terminals, several bus and limousine services plus a metro connector to access the light rail. Taxis are also prevalent and you can take your pick from hundreds that line up in the central terminal area.

What is good to know if travelling to Los Angeles?

  • For a classic LA beach experience, head to Manhattan Beach. The scenic 283m pier is popular fishing spot and the beach has an aquarium, nine-hole golf course,  beach volleyball and Sunday afternoon concerts. This is where people come to be seen, to swim, surf, laze on the beach, roller blade, and have some fun people watching.
  • The Getty is the biggest and best museum in LA, with a notable collection of Western art from the Middle Ages to the present. Admission is free but parking costs $7 for the day. Metro bus 761 drops you off outside the main entrance.
  • If you yearn to dine with the stars, the historic Formosa Café, adjacent to The Lot (formerly Warner Hollywood Studios) will be a highlight of your LA experience. Featured in the film LA Confidential, the café has been going since 1925 and its walls are adorned with signed photos of all its famous patrons, including Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Humphrey Bogart, James Dean and Elvis. The diner is still popular with today’s A-list celebrities such as Bono, Nicholas Cage, Jodie Foster and Michael Douglas.
  • A unique LA event is the annual spring Blessing of the Animals, a colourful parade of pets and motley creatures along downtown Olvera St, from pampered pooches and pusses to sheep, horses, snakes and other beloved pets. It’s been going since 1930.
  • No chance of getting lost in LA. Look out for the Purple People Greeters, who answer questions, give directions, make recommendations and even call the police if you get into trouble. You’ll spot them travelling in pairs wearing matching purple “Downtown Guide” or “District Safety” t-shirts (or you can call in to their Service Centre at 801 S Hill St).
