The beauty of living in LA is we can put our tops down and take a scenic drive nearly all year long. Spring is almost here and our temperatures are already rising. Nothing beats getting in the car and enjoying a scenic drive in the famous California sunshine. If you haven’t driven any of the routes below, Eurozone Motors recommends you do so for a relaxing, sunny, and fun-filled afternoon
Angeles Forest – Angeles Crest Scenic Byway
If you’d like to nice mountain drive, head to the Angeles Crest Scenic Byway. This drive will take you through the San Gabriel mountains, which border LA to the east. Once you reach the highest elevation of the drive, 8,000 feet, you’ll see the Pomona Valley to the west and the Mojave Desert to the east.
Pacific Coast Highway (PCH)
Of course, Los Angeles is known for Pacific Coast Highway and this drive is gorgeous. It can be crowded, though, so if you can drive it during the workweek, you might find it more enjoyable. In LA, PCH is particularly beautiful from Santa Monica to Zuma, although it runs from San Diego to Oregon.
Famous in film, Mulholland Drive is a 55-mile route throughout the Hollywood Hills. You can see the San Fernando Valley on one side from Mulholland Drive and Hollywood and the City of Los Angeles from the other side. Stay on it to drive all the way to Calabasas for lunch but go easy; this drive is quite twisty.
Feel like a little excitement during your relaxing LA drive? Take Mulholland all the way to Calabasas and check out Stunt Road. This road is super twisty but the challenge is worth it for the views. Turn right on Schueren Road, which turns into Piuma Road, to end up on PCH for an ocean-side drive home.
Palos Verdes Drive
If you drive along Palos Verdes Peninsula, you’ll drive along the Pacific Ocean and all it has to offer. Stops along this route include the Point Vicente Lighthouse and Wayfarers Chapel. Eventually, you’ll end up in the Port of Los Angeles if you’re headed south, where you can see shipping in action.
