There’s still plenty of summer left, so pack up your car and venture out from the L.A. area on a SoCal road trip with friends or family. Although the City of Angels is full of amazing sights and entertainment opportunities, nothing quite speaks of adventure like hitting the open road. Here are some of the best road trips destinations to set out to from Los Angeles.
If you’ve been to Joshua Tree, it’s time to head to this incredible national park for at least a weekend. The park’s beautiful landscapes are a wonder to behold, so spend a few nights camping, hiking, and enjoying the stars.
Head south to Salton Sea for an edgier road trip and explore what was once a thriving resort destination in the 1950s. The area has since been largely abandoned due to the lakes increased salinity, pollution, and general smell. The ghost towns and abandoned buildings make this an interesting trip.
No other place is quite so perfect for a road trip as the Big Sur area. Explore the sights of redwoods, mountains, and the ocean while cruising along the narrow Highway 1 that winds along the cliffs and sea. This trip is as beautiful as it is thrilling.
