Car Rental at Burbank Airport
Burbank Bob Hope Airport makes a good entry point if you want to be close to the buzz of Hollywood and yet far from the traffic congestion of Los Angeles. A car rental at Burbank Airport will bring you to Tinseltown and Sleeping Beauty Castle in under an hour during off-peak hours. Rental cars in Burbank Airport are also very useful not just around southern California but also if you plan to go north to San Francisco, or inland to Yosemite Valley.
Tinseltown and Disneyland
Burbank is just half an hour north of Hollywood and an hour north of Anaheim’s Disneyland. There's plenty to be star-struck about in Los Angeles – the Walk of Fame, Beverly Hills and Sunset Boulevard are but a few – and if you have had your share of the fantasyland that is Disney, head to the Santa Monica Pier with your Burbank Airport car rental for the quintessential LA beach scene. Keep in mind, however, that the busiest time after noon in Los Angeles is entirely from 1PM to 6PM.
California's Wine Trails
California is world-renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, and produces plenty more varieties not just in Napa Valley, its most popular wine-growing region, but also in Lido and Modesto County where the bulk of wine production takes place. To get there by car hire from Burbank Airport, take the state Route 99 to San Francisco but do drop by for the historic cable car, the Golden Gate Bridge, and farm-to-fork cooking in San Francisco's Michelin-starred restaurants. Modesto is served by a city-county airport where you can drop off your one way car rental in Burbank Airport.
Yosemite National Park
Rent a car in Burbank Airport and drive north and inland to one of the most important parks in the United States. From San Francisco, go inland four hours to the east and arrive at the eastern entrance of the Yosemite Park. More than just towering sequoias, there are plenty of natural curiosities in Yosemite, including waterfalls, sheer granite cliffs, abundant wildlife and the silence and emptiness that the wilderness brings. You need not drive back to Sacramento or San Francisco, as one way car hire in Burbank Airport can be dropped off at Fresno Yosemite International Airport.
Pacific Coast Highway
The road trip was born in California, thanks to the Pacific Ocean to its west and fertile valleys and breathtaking mountains to its east. One of the most popular stretches of California State Route 1 is the Pacific Coast Highway, a 123-mile twisting and cliff-hugging drive in central California coast. From the south, the drive starts at Morro Bay, about four hours north by rental cars from Burbank Airport, and winds up to Monterey about three hours south of San Francisco. The entirety of US Highway 101, whose southern terminus is in Los Angeles, will take you up right to the Oregon border at Crescent City. The closest drop off place for your one way car rental from Burbank Airport is at Rogue Valley International Airport at Medford, Oregon, just three hours inland and to the north.
