If there is thing you should know about Los Angeles before you head out there it’s this: not much is within walking distance of one another. I’m talking restaurants, shopping, beaches, etc. It pretty much all requires transportation of some sort. So when we headed out there we set out to find the best possible form & we’re here to tell ya, getting a car is essential. Not just any car though, after all, you’re on vacation people! Enjoy that warm weather & indulge in some luxury as we did with our Lexus RC F. While at first we were intimidated by how suave & speedy the car appeared, we were so happy to find it drove easier than any car we’ve driven before! Plus we turned quite a few heads along the way…
Our RC F was essential in getting us from point A to B around LA. As we briefly mentioned above, LA is made up of tons of neighborhoods, most of which are driving distance from one another. Since we had plans to go to Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Venice, West Hollywood, & so many other places, a car served as the best option of getting where we wanted on our own schedule. Let us also note that all you LA people complaining about traffic, we truly don’t understand. Perhaps we got lucky the entire week we were there? Who knows, but thankfully we didn’t hit any bad traffic!
The size of the Lexus RC F was ideal as it was big enough to fit all our luggage (not an easy task…) yet compact enough to fit into that one teeny spot left on the street after driving around for 15 minutes looking for parking (worse than the traffic in our opinion). We felt completely safe in the RC F & loved all the different features it had to offer. For someone not totally comfortable driving a sports car, there are several different modes you can switch the car into which allows for driving at your own discretion. One day during our trip it was 85F & the next it was 65F, thankfully the RC F heats up & cools down within a matter of seconds so you’re never uncomfortable temperature-wise. Plus you know how most cars now-a-days have heated seats? Well the RC F does as well but it also has cooling seats! We were totally spoiled by all the incredible amenities the Lexus RC F has to offer.
The RC F took us to so many fun places in LA & we had the best time cruising around in it! It made traveling such a breeze, thanks to the awesome navigation system & loads of fun, thanks to it’s gorgeous looks & phenomenal stereo system. If you’re looking to get a car either long term or just for a weekend trip as we did, we highly recommend the Lexus RC F.
