Best Airbnbs in LA (updated June 2021)


When is the best time to visit Los Angeles?

Los Angeles gets hot in the summer, making it a great time to visit travelers hoping to hit the beach. Summer weather often extends into fall, providing beach weather until November or later, and flights and stays can often be found at lower rates in September.

While winter and spring are still warm compared to the snowy regions of the north, don’t expect to sunbathe in a bikini. The average high in January, for example, is 69 degrees Fahrenheit, so pack plenty of diapers.

Where should I stay in LA?

Each neighborhood in LA has its own unique personality and style. The best place to stay in LA will depend on what you want to do. Newbies and those looking for the ultimate LA experience may want to stay right next to Hollywood. Likewise, you’ll want to be downtown if you’re hoping to enjoy LA’s nightlife and top restaurants.

For luxury stays and upscale shopping, consider Beverly Hills and Malibu. However, to be close to the beach, you’ll want to be in areas like Santa Monica and Venice.

What is there to do in LA?

LA offers something for every type of traveler, from museums and hikes to world-class nightclubs and restaurants.

The Santa Monica Pier, shopping on Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the Hollywood Sign Pose are all tourist favorites.
