Arrive early at airports; familiarize yourself with where the rental car shuttle pick-up locations are before you leave home, so that it's easier on arrival at the airport and you can pick up the next available shuttle. Relax and enjoy!

In California we loved Paso Robles (wine tasting), Big Sur, Pismo Beach (clam chowder), Santa Barbara, Yosemite National Park and San Francisco. Would have liked to have spent more time in some places but we'll be back!

Eat fresh seafood!! Amazing eats throughout the city... Give yourself plenty of time to get anywhere - traffic is crazier than you could imagine and NORMAL. Point Dume is spectacular in Malibu - be sure to go somewhere beautiful on the coast and enjoy the created beauty of the ocean!

Be prepared to be aggressive to get on to shuttle! Make room for other passengers. TIP YOUR DRIVER for good service; they work hard!

Great e huge city. A lot of touristic places. The best is the tour in the studios, especially watch a tv series and the park on the Universal Studios. Six Flags Magic Moutain we had a loto of fun, but the park could be more organized e offer better conditions to the clients to minimize the time on the lines. The traffic is the worst in the city, so plan all with much time before your schedules.

Driving is very slow between the hours of 7:00 AM & 10:AM and again between 3:00 PM & 6:00 PM avoid driving during this time if possible.
