Plan Your Drive Before You Purchase Your Disneyland tickets,

Universal Studios Hollywood tickets and SeaWorld San Diego tickets

 

Southern California is big place encompassing over 10K square miles. 25 million people call Southern California home. What was once farmland, orange groves, and dairies, has given way to big city downtowns, entertainment giants, mega-theme parks, endless suburbs and lots of freeways to connect it all.

 

Southern Californians love their cars. As a result, we lag behind the development of mass transit systems found in other big cities. Although Southern California boasts one of the most extensive freeway systems in the world, the past 30 years has seen California grow resulting in more clogged freeways that struggle to move pretty much all day.

 

To avoid ruining your day sitting in stop and go traffic, mostly stop, we highly recommend downloading the Waze app. Waze helps you navigate around traffic jams or at least some of it.

 

Once you've checked into your hotel, it's easier to use the Lyft app for your get-around town transportation. If you choose to drive your own car just to go a few miles to dinner or go to the beach, you're going to have to deal with navigating your directions and parking. If you choose to indulge in a little wine then don't drive. It's not worth the risk. Better to let Lyft drivers do the driving. They know the quickest way from here to there and best of all, there are no parking hassles. 

 

San Diego to Orange County is about 150 miles. Orange County to Universal City is another 150 miles. To assure everyone has a good time, it's critical you plan out where you want to go, when you want to go, and where you need to stay. Your hotel's guest services are locals, make sure you get to know them. The drive along the coast to San Diego through Camp Pendelton is enjoyable providing you travel at the correct times. Traffic typically jams up in and out of Oceanside after 2pm. Weekends are busy all day so leave before 9am and plan to return after 7pm. Traveling to and from Los Angeles on the 5 freeway after 2pm will have you bottled up in heavy traffic north of Orange County all the way to Los Angeles. We would suggest traveling on the 405 freeway to the 101  north for a route that offers more lanes in and out of Los Angels. The 5 freeway is older and provides only three lanes south of Los Angeles. 

 

If you're planning on buying Universal Studios Hollywood tickets, discount Disneyland tickets or SeaWorld San Diego tickets your best choice is to book your hotel near where you're going to be spending your time. Check out our featured hotels in the Disneyland area San Diego,  Los Angeles,  Orange County for a hotel near where your vacation is.
