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.

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.
