Weather all year round
Los Angeles is sunny 320 days a year. Los Angeles has a semi-arid Mediterranean climate, which is conducive to mild and humid winters and hot and dry summers. The average temperature is 19.3°C year-round, but the thermometer actually varies several degrees between the coast and the interior. The precipitation rate is moderate with an annual total of 305.3 mm: the rainy season is in winter and spring
A stay in Los Angeles requires a big budget. Everything is very expensive: accommodation, restaurants, taxis. Plan between US$80 and 200 for a middle-class hotel and between US$20 and 40 per meal per person, US$2 for a transport ticket. About the same as French prices; however, petrol is cheaper here than in Europe.
Two types of passports are valid in the United States. Biometric passports, issued since 2009, and e-passports, which replace the machine-readable passport. Both types of passports must be accompanied by an ESTA. France is still part of the Visa Waiver Pilot program, which allows all French nationals to enter the United States without a visa for a stay of up to 90 days. In addition to the passport, the traveller must be in possession of a non-refundable return ticket to the United States and not intend to extend his or her stay. The ESTA form must be filled out online at least 72 hours before departure and the US$14 fee must be paid (https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov). For more information on the types of visas available and the procedures to follow, visit the website of the U.S. Embassy in France.
Traveling to Los Angeles does not present any major health risks, but be vigilant on certain points to avoid any health inconveniences during your trip.
Water. Tap water is drinkable throughout the Los Angeles area and does not require any special precautions. If you have any doubts, especially outside the city, prefer mineral water bottles and check that they are well sealed.
Sea and beaches. The beaches are beautiful but not all of them are allowed to swim. Find out about tide times and the direction of the currents, which are sometimes dangerous.
Sun. Beware of burns! High temperatures prevail in the desert near the city and the sun's rays can be aggressive and dangerous. Therefore, extreme caution should be exercised and long and repetitive exposures should be avoided. Use sunscreen with a high index and wear a hat and glasses
