The Best Time to Go to Los Angeles
Los Angeles summers are essentially how they appear in Hollywood movies: filled with tourists, hot weather, and crowded beaches. Visiting Los Angeles in the springtime (March to May) will allow you to explore the city with smaller crowds and pleasantly mild weather. If you’re looking for more beach days, plan your trip for the autumn (September, October and November) to catch the end of the summer heat. December to March is the wettest time of year, but temperatures remain quite comfortable, so a winter trip shouldn’t be ruled out.
