Drive times in LA

Jump to last reply

Hi there! My family and I are getting ready to fly to Australia for a cruise. We are flying from the East Coast and will be arriving at LAX on a Tuesday at 2:35 PM. Our flight to Sydney does not depart until 10:20 PM. I was thinking of checking our bags with the airline and then renting a car and driving into Hollywood for a few hours.

My question is - if we drive to Hollywood, when should we plan to head back to LAX? I know that LA traffic is a challenge! I would like to be back at the airport by 8:00 PM.

I am guessing by the time we pick up the car it would be approx 3:30 PM - is this going to allow enough time to head to Hollywood. Look around a little while and head back?

Thank you so much for all of your replies!

Edie
