Are you visiting Los Angeles this summer? You might be wondering what to pack for your vacation. There’s a plethora of things to do and different traditions in LA culture. Let this guide help you out with where to start.
In Los Angeles, July, August and September tend to be the hottest months of the year. During the summer, temperatures in downtown average mid 80s or low 90s and temperatures by the ocean average in the mid 70s. During the summer in LA, you’ll mostly experience blue skies and no rain and the heat is dry with almost no humidity.
When it comes to what to pack, you’ll certainly want to pack things to handle the warmer weather. Bring plenty of tank tops, shirts and shorts. While it’s sunny during the day, at night it can get a little chilly, especially if you visit the beach, so bring a few jeans or leggings along with you as well as a sweater for the evenings. As far as shoes, you’ll probably want to have a good pair of sandals, especially if you’re going to go to the beach as you don’t want to be wearing tennis to the beach. If you’re heading to nightclubs or want to do some dancing, pack heels. When you’re going sightseeing, wear tennis shoes or comfortable sandals with arch supports and bring a pair of hiking boots for your outdoor adventures.
Finally, make sure you take your camera along with you to remember all your adventures in LA. Some of the most iconic and photographic places in LA to visit include the Griffith Observatory, Santa Monica Pier, “Urban Light” at the LA County Museum of Art, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall to name a few.
