Planning for Your Next Road Trip


National Road Trip Day is on Friday, May 24, 2024, perfect for kicking off the weekend with a fun family activity. While we are conveniently less than 15 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport, our Los Angeles hotel is also conveniently located near many major highways such as I-405, Pacific Coast Highway/California 1, and I-105, making it the perfect gateway for your road trip.



Packing Tips


While packing the car, you'll want to maximize as much space as possible since you'll be on the road for most of the time. Here are some packing tips to maximize space:


  • Roll clothes and pack heavy items at the bottom: Rolling your clothes is the best way to prevent unwanted creases and to make the most of your space. Also pack heavier items at the bottom of your suitcase which will keep it stable when luggage needs to be moved around.
  • Foldable and reusable tote bag: A large foldable tote bag is ideal to travel with so you can have something to fill up when you start to buy memorabilia and souvenirs.
  • Reusable water bottle: Refill your water bottle with water filling stations that are usually available at rest stops. Our hotel also has a water filling station near the fitness center.
  • Medications and vitamins: Keep your medications and vitamins organized by preparing your daily pills in advance in refillable waterproof travel vitamin bags that you can purchase on Amazon.


Top Attractions in El Segundo


While making an overnight stop during your road trip at our El Segundo hotel, we recommend exploring these must-visit places:


  • Automobile Driving Museum: This museum features an impressive collection of antique, vintage, and muscle cars. Don't miss out on taking a classic car ride on Sunday, which is subject to availability and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Old Town Music Hall: A long cherished venue since its establishment in 1921 with screenings of vintage silent and sound films, and live performances by esteemed jazz, ragtime, and popular music artists.
  • Downtown El Segundo: Tucked between the beach and residential neighborhoods of El Segundo, shop and dine while getting to know the city's distinct character.
  • SoFi Stadium: Watch a sports game or your favorite band and artist perform at this sports and entertainment complex. Take a SoFi Stadium Tour to experience what it would be like to be a fan, broadcaster or player, while getting exclusive access to team locker rooms, player tunnel, and more.
  • Kia Forum: An Inglewood landmark that is the only arena-sized venue dedicated to music and entertainment in the U.S.


These are just a few examples of must-visit places in El Segundo. Make sure to check our local events calendar to stay up to date with what's going on today in Los Angeles.
