Like all major American cities, especially its neighbour San Francisco, Los Angeles is open all year round. On the Californian coast, temperatures remain pleasant, even in winter, and the city's activity does not weaken. However, depending on your wishes, it will be wise to choose your stay period. Here are some tips on when to go to Los Angeles.

The high tourist season is summer in Los Angeles. Southern California attracts many international travellers, who take their holidays in July-August. You will see many Europeans at this time of year. The Christmas holidays and the Thanksgiving Bridge are also very busy, with many Americans returning to their families. The period between March and May is also busy enough for spring break.

The low season begins in September/October and ends in March (excluding end-of-year holidays). You can try to negotiate prices for your hotels, especially outside Los Angeles. Visit the deserts in autumn or spring. Outside the summer months, national parks are subject to very low temperatures (snow is often still seen in the spring): check before you go!
