Los Angeles is an entire universe unto itself. But just beyond the city limits are some of California’s premier coastal retreats, sun-soaked towns, theme parks, and island escapes. Maximize your SoCal experience on one of these day trips from LA.

Catalina Island
Los Angeles can sometimes feel like a concrete jungle, but just off the coast is Catalina Island, a laid-back seaside community that’s part of the Channel Islands archipelago. Catalina visitors can explore a range of historic architecture, see bountiful marine life, and try numerous activities. You might scout for dolphins and sea lions during a boat tour; explore the heritage of Avalon, the island’s largest city; or soar through the air on a thrilling zipline ride.

Disneyland¼ Resort — 27 miles (43 km) from Los Angeles
Walt Disney’s original theme park, located in the Orange County city of Anaheim, has been delighting kids of all ages since it opened its doors in 1955. Many Los Angeles day tours to this world-famous attraction include round-trip transportation and an admission ticket, allowing visitors plenty of time to enjoy iconic park attractions like the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and themed areas including Main Street, U.S.A. Other tours offer flexible pick-and-choose options with access to Disney California Adventure¼ Park next door.

Santa Barbara — 95 miles (153 km) from Los Angeles
The coastal city of Santa Barbara makes for a surprisingly convenient day trip that feels worlds away from busy LA. Many Santa Barbara visitors head to see the city’s historic Spanish Mission-style architecture and scenic harbor before continuing to the Danish-themed city of Solvang, and then head north to explore the sprawling Hearst Castle.

San Diego — 120 miles (193 km) from Los Angeles
San Diego, located about two hours south of Los Angeles, is a perfect day trip companion to your Los Angeles visit. Boasting an incredible collection of attractions—the world-famous San Diego Zoo, Legoland California, tasty craft breweries, sprawling Pacific beaches, and historic sights like the USS Midway aircraft carrier and Hotel Del Coronado—San Diego offers plenty of fun-filled options for day-trippers.
