Residents of the Los Angeles and Santa Monica area know that L.A. is a wonderful place to live, but sometimes it’s fun to get out of the city and see new places. Fortunately, there are a number of fantastic sights within driving distance. Here are just a few of the best ones that you could take before the summer is over — as well as car recommendations for those trips.

Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach lives up to its reputation as a gorgeous and scenic destination for those seeking a getaway. Located just an hour’s drive from Los Angeles, Laguna Beach visitors can enjoy the sites in a luxury convertible like a Porsche or an Audi. Explore the miles of beautiful coastline, feast on some of the wonderful food, and take part in one of the several renowned local festivals.

Balboa Island

A man-made island near Newport Beach, Balboa Island is a small, tight-knit community that welcomes visitors with open arms. Take in the sights on foot, or tour the island in a comfortable compact like a Toyota Prius or Volkswagen e-Golf.


A taste of wine country and only an hour and a half away, the lovely city of Temecula offers visitors a scenic and serene destination. Well-suited for a casual and classy ride like the 2016 Audi A3, Temecula is perfect drivers who just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree — one of the most beautiful national parks in the country — is perfect for anyone looking for a beautiful outdoors destination. The rugged landscape makes it perfect for the versatile Volkswagen Tiguan, and fans of the wilderness will find a lot to love.


Routinely featured on lists of the country’s best beaches, Coronado is a brief two hour drive from Los Angeles. Coronado promises vacationers a lovely landscape and a quaint, casual town, and it’s perfect for enjoying in a car like the 2016 Porsche Panamera.
