Best Los Angeles driving roads

Pacific Coast Highway

The PCH, as the locals call it, stretches along the coast from the sandy beaches of Santa Monica to the stunning cliffs of Malibu. Book a convertible on Turo to best enjoy the ocean air.

Angeles Crest Highway

Let your Los Angeles car rental alternative perform while you climb up 7,900 feet, clinging to twisting mountain roads through majestic forests and catch glimpses of LA over cliff-edges.

Mulholland Drive

This breathtaking 14-mile drive through the Santa Monica Mountains allows you to relive Hollywood chase scenes with great views of celebrity properties and the scenic valley below.
