Hey guys, doing this trip in August, flying into LA and driving round. Planning on doing the usual touristy stuff (Hollywood, Universal Studios, gambling in Vegas, San Diego Zoo) but does anyone have any recommendations for anything that may be a bit less known?
>>
Personally, I'd skip San Diego & Palm Springs (although if you stick with Palm Springs you should visit Joshua Tree NP nearby). I'd use the extra time to go up to Lassen NP in northern California. If you go to Death Valley, be prepared for extreme, extreme heat -- carry plenty of water and make sure your car is in good shape.

>death valley and palm springs in august.

yosemite's gonna be hot as fuck, too, but not absolute death like those two. if you're planning on camping in yosemite expect to get your reservations in 6 months early, or be prepared to camp 40-60 minutes outside the park.

San Diego is comfy as fuck though. It's a good contrast to the dirty LA and the sleazy Vegas.

Check out Hearst Castle, Solvang, and Big Sur OP. Central coast is probably the most underrated part of California.

It's already booked like in the pic so no Lassen, at least not this time anyway. Was thinking of checking out Joshua Tree NP
>>1066013
We have all our lodgings sorted already, no campsites needed
>>1066029
Never heard of Hearst Castle or Solvang but I've just looked them up, I may as well check them out if I'm headed in that direction anyway, thanks
>>
Also, is traffic/driving as bad in LA as I've read it is? We get the car when we arrive at the airport so is it worth driving while we're in LA or should we just park up for a couple of days and stick to public transport?
>>

It's pretty shitty at basically all hours but so is west coast public transportation. You could always avoid freeways. One asset to LA is that some streets literally run from one end to the other.
