How much does a Trip to LA Cost?

Things to know before you start Packing!

Now that you are clear how much does a trip to LA cost - let's dive into some essential things to know before you start packing. This will answer the integral question - what to pack for a trip to LA

  1. Pack according to the season

Trust me, I've seen people who pack off-season clothes, for example, they are going for a trip in summer and packing all the autumn clothes. Yes, it happens. Pack your stuff and your essential needs according to the season.

If you're going to LA in the summers, consider packing clothes that are breathable because you don't want to take a bath in sweat. Take swimwear for a day at Venice Beach. Tropical shirts would look amazing (which we have on a great sale!)

In spring, take light color shirts with you. You can even take flower pattern t-shirts. Yes, spring is all about flowers and beautiful weather with alluring blue skies.

A little piece of advice, take some nice stylish jacket with you even in the summer. Because at night, LA tends to get colder, somewhat to 10 to 20 degrees. Yes, this is true.

  1. Miscellaneous Travel Items

By travel items, what I mean is items like your camera for those shots and memorable pictures. Cell phone charger, which is essential, sorry everyone knows this one.

When packing for a trip to LA a good backpack is important. You can't roam around the city holding things in your hands, so a backpack is a must. Consider taking other bags with you too, like a fanny pack or a cross-body bag, to look stylish and good in photos, and feel confident when you walk around the city.

Hand sanitizers are a must on your packing list, so make sure you keep them with you. Stay safe!
