The Best Road Trip Destinations From LAX

There’s nothing quite like taking a road trip up the California coast. Of course, if you drive straight to one of the many California travel destinations, you can make good time, but you’d miss out on all the beauty California’s coastline has to offer. This road trip from LAX will take you to fun destinations along or near the coast all from the comfort of your rental car.

After you fly into Los Angeles International Airport, hop in your LAX car rental and let the good times begin.

Leo Carrillo State Park

No matter whether you like to play in the waves or walk along the seashore, Leo Carrillo State Park has something for all beachgoers and roadtrippers alike. The area features beautiful hikes, shaded campgrounds, tidal pools, surfing, coastal caves, and more.

Ventura Beaches

Driving up and down the California coast, you’ll see your share of beautiful beaches, but if you’re looking for a top surfing spot, Ventura beaches are one of the best places to visit. You may even see surfers enjoying the waves with their dogs at the pet-friendly beaches in the area.

There are plenty of local restaurants near the beaches and in downtown Ventura, so this stop can take a few hours, all day, or a few days depending on your preferences.

Stearns Wharf

Make a stop at the number one tourist spot in Santa Barbara: Stearns Wharf. Historically, the wharf served the passenger and commercial shipping needs of the harbor. Today, it’s one of the most popular places to visit and features restaurants, an ice cream parlor, an interactive marine museum, a toy store, an old-school candy shop, and so much more.

Bubblegum Alley

Right in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo is where you’ll find this unique, quirky attraction. Bubblegum Alley has walls around 15 feet tall and 70 feet long that are entirely covered in chewed pieces of gum. Stop by and make your mark on this sticky attraction!

McWay Falls

This short hike in Big Sur has a stunning view that is worth the walk. It’s easy, fairly flat, and leads to a gorgeous 80-foot waterfall. The hike is less than a mile, and the elevation gain is about 50 feet. There are restrooms in the area, and a parking fee.

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

Continue up the coast to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This seaside amusement park will be a delight to adults and children alike. Admission to the park is free, and tickets can be purchased individually for each ride. Browse through all the fun rides, shops, games, dining options, and more.

If you go during the summer, be sure to take advantage of the various free entertainment events held most weekend nights.
