3 Reasons To Rent A Car On Your Vacation

Planning a vacation to California soon? Don’t forget to take into account how you’ll be travelling from place to place. Public transport is often not the best route to take when travelling. For one, it can get crowded. Second, they are often uncomfortable and may not follow the schedule you have in mind for your day.

Finding a foolproof and safe way to commute can be a bit of a hassle. Luckily, you can rent a car and steer your way to your destinations at your own pace and comfort!

A Private Affair

Imagine planning a romantic getaway to Los Angeles only to have it interrupted by a dozen strangers on your trip downtown. That would really kill the romance, wouldn’t it? With a private rental car, however, privacy won’t be an issue.

It can be quite annoying to have a bunch of strangers surrounding you as you travel to and from place to place, and gave them listening to your private conversations. This is why you should rent a car instead and have all the privacy you want while you travel.

With a rental car, driving around the city with your significant other and sightseeing together while maintaining your privacy gets easier and more fun!

Exploring The Unknown

If you rent a car, you don’t have to stick to a set tourist trail. Exploring the city in a tour bus may give you the chance to see particular sites, but you won’t be able to avail the opportunity to the fullest. You’ll have to follow a strict schedule, and at best will only get a glimpse of the wonderful sights around the town.

Renting a car on the other hand will allow you to make your own routes and discover more areas. You won’t just get to see ‘the big things’ that make for most of the popular tourist attractions, you can also find your way towards other, lesser known places that are just as amazing.

Don’t worry about getting lost! The GPS system will let you navigate easily and you’ll be able to get more than just a typical tourist experience on your vacation.

Cruising In Comfort

What’s the one thing everyone wants while travelling? Comfort, of course! You’ve made arrangements to stay at a nice, comfy hotel and planned the perfect relaxing vacation, so why not extend that luxury to your transport as well?

supercheapcar

With your own car, you can travel easily and in comfort along with your loved ones. No more concerns about leg space or having to stop at set destinations along the way. Put your seatbelts on, turn up the radio, and drive across the city with your hand-picked travel buddies!

Here’s Everything You Need To Do In Orange County In 2018

Here’s Everything You Need To Do In Orange County In 2018

Orange County is one of the most beautiful parts of California (and the United States). While most first-time Cali visitors tend to stick to LA, there’s a lot to be seen in the county that lies just south, and we’re not just talking about Disneyland. Make 2018 the year you book a flight, secure your car rental reservations Orange County through Super Cheap Car Rental, and explore this amazing area.

Of course, a weekend in beautiful Southern California isn’t enough… and sometimes, even a full week is too short to see everything you’re hoping to see. Luckily, Super Cheap has some excellent Orange County long-term car rental terms to ensure you’ll have your perfect vehicle for as long as you need it.

If you’re coming to Orange County this year, enjoy this list of must-see attractions. While you could come to the OC a dozen times and never see everything, these spots will give you an incredible start.

 

Laguna Beach

Without a doubt, Laguna Beach is the absolute gem of Orange County. Located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, it’s a true year-round paradise. The little oceanside town is downright charming, and the beach itself is beautiful.

Aside from long beach walks (which you’ll want to enjoy frequently), a few of the best things to do in Laguna Beach include whale watching, shopping, the Laguna Art Museum and the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. There are also plenty of tasty restaurants to enjoy.

 

Long Beach

Long Beach is basically one giant playground with something for everyone. Home of the historic (and haunted) ship, the Queen Mary, this tourist-friendly town is a must-see. Check out the Aquarium of the Pacific, stroll along the pier, and catch a show at the Art Theatre of Long Beach. You’ll never be bored here.

 

Sherman Library and Gardens

Located in Corona del Mar, the Sherman Library and Gardens is a 2.2-acre horticultural retreat. You’ll discover a museum of living plants, breathtaking gardens, and conservatories linked together by brick walkways lined with flowers. Frequent events, such as movie nights an afternoon tea services, are also a big draw.

 

Huntington Beach Pier

Huntington Beach captures the spirit of “Surf City,” and the pier is a local icon. The structure dates all the way back to 1904 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A severe storm in the 1980s tried to take it out, but it was quickly rebuilt and now stretches 1.850 feet into the ocean. That makes it the longest pier on the entire West Coast.

 

Fullerton Arboretum

For a mere $5 donation, you can spend an afternoon relaxing in nature. The Fullerton Arboretum is open daily from 8 AM until 4:30, and it’s full of beautiful gardens and exhibits. If you can bear to be away from the beach for a day, these sights will make it all worth it.

 

Mission San Juan Capistrano

If you’re a history buff, you’ll definitely want to see San Juan Capistrano’s mission. Founded by Spanish Catholics of the Franciscan Order in 1776, it’s incredible that the majority of it is still standing. You can take a guided tour here for a mere $3, or wander around yourself and explore the beautiful grounds.

 

Crystal Cove State Park

Visiting Crystal Cove State Park, which is located off the Pacific Coast Highway between Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar, feels a bit like going back in time. As one of Orange County’s last remaining examples of open space and natural seashore, it features over three miles of beach and a whopping 2,400 acres of backcountry wilderness. Make sure you check out the Historic District, a cluster of 46 vintage cottages built in the 1930s and 40s that are available for rent (but tend to be booked almost a year in advance).

 

Balboa Pier

If you get the chance to check out Newport Beach, head to the iconic Balboa Pier to catch the sunset. Constructed in 1906 as a sister project of the Balboa Pavilion, it has attracted multitudes of beachgoers over the years. If you’re hungry, enjoy a meal and a milkshake at Ruby’s Diner, which sits right on the pier.

 

Fashion Island

If you love shopping (or if you just forgot some vacation essentials and you need a few things), you’ll love Fashion Island, Orange County’s largest shopping center. Not only will you find some great familiar stores, but if you have time, you can even enjoy the wardrobe and styling experiences of your own personal shopper. Fashion Island is located at 01 Newport Center Drive in Newport Beach.

 

Bolsa Chica State Beach

Located in the beautiful Huntington Beach community, Bolsa Chica State Beach is known as a nirvana for newbies. Known for welcoming novice surfers, swimmers and fisherman (due to the shallow water and small waves), this is a great place to visit if you’re curious about surfing… or if you’d just like to watch others attempt it. The beach has outdoor showers, public restrooms, volleyball courts and basketball courts, and the 200 fire rings are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

 

Disneyland

This one goes without saying… but we had to mention it. After all, how can you visit Orange County without going to the Happiest Place on Earth? Disneyland remains just as magical as it always was, and now there are plenty of other nearby theme parks to choose from should you decide that the Magic Kingdom isn’t for you.

Maximize your Disney time by visiting in the offseason (avoid holidays and school vacations). Buying tickets online will save you from waiting in line, and if you pack in your own picnic food, you’ll save both money and time.

Irvine Park Railroad Christmas Train to Santa

From December 1-23, you can take a beautiful night ride through the historic Irvine Regional Park in Orange to meet Santa Claus himself.

Irvine Regional Park is always a beautiful place to visit for people of all ages, with pony rides, paddle boat rentals and the Orange County Zoo.

 

The Christmas Boat Parade, Newport Beach

The annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade and Ring of Lights is an amazing experience, and this year’s event will be the 109th. Over a million viewers gather to watch the decorated yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes sail along the harbor. The dates for this spectacular event are December 13-17.

You can view the parade from anywhere on the shore free of charge. However, for comfort’s sake, many people prefer to view it from one of the local restaurants or from a rented boat. Click here for a list of restaurants that offer views of the boats.

 

Cruise of Lights, Huntington Beach

Huntington Beach’s Cruise of Lights is also an incredible event. This year’s dates for the festivities are December 15-18 and December 21-23, so if you’re in the area, you can see this illuminated parade as well as the Newport Beach display. Park in the Huntington Harbor Mall lot and hop on a designated bus that will take you to the boat launch areas to view.

Tickets start at $19 ($12 for children). Call 714-840-7542 to get yours as soon as possible.

Admission is as little as $49, with special ticket packages being offered on their website.

 

Nutcracker Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Village, Downtown Anaheim

If you’ll be in the Anaheim area on December 2, skip Disneyland that morning (really!) and head to the downtown area by 10 Am for the tree lighting. You’ll also see a performance of the Nutcracker, a “snow” play area, an international food frenzy, pictures with Santa and more. Best of all, everything (except the food and souvenirs) is free.

 

Dana Point Winter Festival and Tree Lighting

This gorgeous tree lighting also takes place on December 2, with festivities from noon until 5 PM. Aside from the lighting of the spectacular tree, you can decorate cookies, shop for crafts, check out a petting zoo, visit Santa, and so much more. Everything takes place at La Plaza in Dana Point, and almost everything is free.

 

Sawdust Art Festival’s Annual Winter Fantasy, Laguna Beach

Every weekend from now through December 17, the Laguna Beach Sawdust festival grounds transform into a winter wonderland with a whopping 175 artists selling their original creations. The Winter Fantasy offers the most original holiday shopping in Southern California, so if you’re looking for unique gifts, you won’t want to miss it. You may want to bring an extra carry-on for the plane just for your new creations.

 

Laguna Niguel Holiday Parade, Crown Valley Parkway

On December 9 at 10 AM, the Laguna Niguel Holiday Parade will once again dance down the streets of Laguna Niguel. This is a time-honored tradition with more than 3,000 parade participants and too many guests to count, so you’ll want to arrive early to get a good view.

 

 

10 Off The Beaten Path Attractions You Must See In Orange County

Located just south of Los Angeles, Orange County includes some of Southern California’s most visually stunning spots, like Dana Point and Laguna Beach. It’s no wonder the tourism industry here is thriving—between the legendary theme parks, historic sites, and picturesque beaches, “the OC” instantly envelops you in a classic California lifestyle.

But there’s more to see in the OC than just Disneyland… much more, in fact. If you’re willing to go off the beaten path, you’ll find beloved local gems and underrated attractions. Make sure you choose the right Orange County inexpensive car rental to take you from point A to point B (and C… and D…). Ask us about our Orange County long-term car rental terms.

Once you’ve got the keys to your rental car, you’ll be free to explore one of the most beautiful parts of Southern California. We highly recommend visiting as many of these 10 spots as possible. Not only are they often less crowded than the more well-known places, but they’re amazing.

 

  1. Crescent Bay Beach

Crescent Bay Beach is located in northern Laguna Beach, and it’s surprising how quiet it is given the fact that it’s so easily accessible. You can park on the North Coast Highway and then walk down to Cliff Drive, following the path to the beach. There you’ll find peace and quiet (and sometimes total solitude) and surf, sand and sky.

 

  1. California Citrus State Historic Park 

Technically this park is in Riverside County, but it’s worth the drive. You’ll find this historic park in the city of Riverside, and it’s a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. The property reminds us of a time when orange groves were abundant in the region, and there are plenty of walking trails and places to have a picnic.

 

  1. Fullerton Arboretum

Need to relax and reconnect with nature? Drive straight to Fullerton and pay the $5 suggested admission to enjoy the arboretum. The facility has plant collections that represent species from all over the world. Plus, it’s just plain pretty.

 

  1. Cameo Shores Beach

This serene beach sits nestled below the Cameo Shores community in Newport Beach. To reach it, you’ll have to walk along a rocky shoreline from Little Corona Del Mar Beach. But because of this, the area remains delightfully uncrowded.

 

  1. Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, Buena Park

This is a dinner show like no other, and many tourists don’t even know it exists. Kids of all ages as well as kids at heart will be in awe watching the show (and the menu isn’t too bad, either). Medieval Times was popular decades ago, and now the same people who enjoyed it as children bring their own kids to experience it.

 

  1. Mission San Juan Capistrano

This old Spanish mission dates back to 1776, when it was founded by Spanish Catholics of the Franciscan Order. These days it’s a beautiful part of our history you can visit daily from 9 AM – 5 PM for $9.

 

  1. The Hobbit Restaurant, Orange

Vacations are really mostly about eating, right? Since 1972, this unbelievably elegant eatery has been serving seven-course, prixe-fixe dinners in a refined setting. This spot is on many a Californian’s bucket list, and since you’ll be saving so much money on your rental car, you’ll be able to indulge.

 

  1. The Lido Theatre, Balboa

This flamingo-pink venue dates back to Old Hollywood… rumor has it that Bette Davis herself designed the bathrooms. You’ll mostly see live performances here now, along with newly released films and the occasional festival screening. Grab your seats in the balcony simply because you can.

 

  1. Crystal Cove State Park

Located in Newport Beach, visiting Crystal Cove feels like going back in time. You can easily spend an entire day there enjoying the beach, and with a little proper planning (they book fast), you can spend the night at one of the vintage beach cottages tucked away on the coast.

 

  1. Balboa Island Fun Zone

We’re not sure which is better, the Fun Zone itself or the ferry ride to and from the island. The Balboa Island ferry has been in operation since 1919, and these days, it carries passengers by foot or car to the Balboa Island Fun Zone.

The Fun Zone was built in 1936 by Al Anderson, featuring a small beach and a Ferris Wheel as the main attractions. It has since been rebuilt several times, but it maintains its old-fashioned charm, especially the arcades on the boardwalk. Kids and kids at heart love this place.

And remember, it’s always worth making the effort to see some of Orange County’s more popular attractions as well. Knott’s Berry Farm, Long Beach, the Queen Mary, Newport Beach and the Aquarium of the Pacific are just a few options. Needless to say, you may want to consider extending your vacation.

 

 

 

 

A Southern California Road Trip You Can Take On One Tank Of Gas

SuperCheapMap

Part of the fun of a California vacation is driving around and exploring new places. After all, there’s no road trip quite like a California road trip. But the cost of getting to Southern California is expensive enough without factoring in the price of gas once you’ve arrived.

Luckily, there are plenty of beautiful road trips you can take using just one tank of gas. All you’ll need to do is fill up once before you return your rental car and you’ll be good to go. Looking at Los Angeles car rental packages before your trip will help you determine the most cost effective option for you. At Super Cheap, we don’t discriminate based on your age, so you’ll find plenty of underage car rental Los Angeles options that won’t break the bank.

This road trip takes you from the Super Cheap building near LAX Airport down to coast to Carlsbad and back, stopping at many beautiful places along the way. The total duration of the trip is about 280 miles, which should be just about one tank of gas.

The Griffith Observatory

Start with a trip to the Griffith Observatory, which is about a 40 minute drive from the airport (with traffic). This iconic Southern California landmark is the perfect spot to begin a road trip. Access to the observatory is free, and nothing beats the incredible views of LA. If you have the time and want to stretch your legs, you can also take a hike through Griffith Park.

Torrance

Find I-110 South and drive 28 miles south to Torrance, a charming city in the South Bay region of LA. Walk through Wilson Park, check out the Chen Art Gallery or get a growler to go at Smog City Brewing.

Long Beach

Head south on I-405 for about 20 minutes and you’ll reach Long Beach, hopefully just in time for sunset. Long Beach has plenty to see, do and eat, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to explore. The Pier 76 Fish Grill serves delicious seafood, while Tequila Jack’s is a great place to go for Mexican food with harbor views. If you can swing it, you’ll never forget spending the night at the Queen Mary, California’s notoriously haunted ship. There are also several budget-friendly hotels in the area if you need to save your cash.

Balboa Island

The next day, head to Newport Beach where you’ll find Balboa Island. This is the perfect destination to make you feel as if you’re truly on vacation. Take a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk, and don’t forget to ride the Ferris Wheel if it’s open.

Laguna Beach

Afterwards, cruise down to the visually stunning Laguna Beach, one of California’s most popular destinations. Over a decade ago, the Laguna Beach reality show introduced us to the cast of The Hills, but it was a popular place to see long before that. Its year round mild climate and arts-focused community make it a very desirable place. You can look through the charming shops and boutiques, or if you’d prefer to be near nature, head to the beautiful Crystal Cove State Park, where you’ll find hiking trails, tide pools and long stretches of sandy beach.

Carlsbad

39 miles south of Laguna Beach sits the lovely seaside city of Carlsbad. This area is best known for the Legoland amusement park, which can actually be a lot of fun. But if that isn’t your style, Carlsbad Village is a wonderful place to hang out and check out the shops, local art and dining options. And although it’s only open seasonally, the Carlsbad Flower Fields are absolutely stunning (and perfect for vacation selfies). Spend the night at the Beach Terrace Inn or the Ocean Palms Beach Resort.

Temecula

The next day, get on Highway 76 E and take I-15 N to Temecula, a mid-sized city that happens to be part of Southern California’s wine country. If you love wine, this is your place to taste and stock up on bottles to-go. They even offer wine tours through several privately owned companies. But you certainly don’t have to enjoy wine to enjoy Temecula. There’s also the amazing Old Town Temecula, a once sleepy part of town that has seen a revival in recent years.

Lake Elsinore

You won’t find many tourist towns on the final stretch of your road trip. But Lake Elsinore is worth visiting. The small city sits on the shores of the lake, which is a natural freshwater body of water and the largest natural freshwater lake in Southern California. The historic downtown area doesn’t have much going on, but it’s a great place to walk around before you have to climb back in the car.

Once you’re back in the Los Angeles area, you’ll want to fill up your car… if you started your trip with a full tank, it will be empty by the end. You’d be surprised by how many road trips you’re able to take on one tank of gas with proper planning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10 Hidden California Beaches Perfect For Escaping The Crowd

Hidden California Beaches on west coast

It may be winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy time at the beach in California. Our mild winters mean there’s never a bad time to sink your toes into the sand (though you may want to leave your swimsuit behind for a few months). And better yet, the off-season means the beach will be quieter.

But even though tourist season hasn’t officially arrived in California, you’ll still see some good-sized crowds at our beaches, especially at our most popular destinations. That’s why we’ve prepared a list of lesser-known beaches that are off the beaten path.

Of course, before you cruise to the coast, you’ll need a good car rental Los Angeles. Seeing the beach in California means doing a lot of driving, so get something reliable and comfortable. Check out car rental Los Angeles to see if you can find a deal on a more long-term car rental.

These 10 beaches may take a little more effort to find than our most well known spots, but the peace and quiet you’ll enjoy will be worth it.

Russ Cove Beach

Russ Cove Beach is hidden near Half Moon Bay on the north side of Pillar Point. It’s located near the Bay Area, and although it isn’t as warm as summertime, you’ll still be able to enjoy the coastal hiking trails the area is known for.

Seal Cove

Also known as Cypress Cove, Seal Cove sits inside the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve at Moss Beach and has amazing tide pools to check out during low tide. You’ll also see a lush forest behind the beach with plenty of hiking trails.

Carmel Meadows Beach

Located on the outskirts of Carmel, Carmel Meadows Beach is the name of the small portion of Carmel River State Beach that is adjacent to the Carmel Meadows housing community. It’s a little rocky and rugged, but it’s much less crowded than the main Carmel River Beach.

Table Rock Beach

Table Rock Beach is a tucked away, locally loved place in south Laguna Beach. Skimboarders love the shape of the waves, but you won’t find big crowds of people here.

Pirates Cove Beach

Pirates Cove is a secluded beach in a small cove on the west side of Malibu’s Point Dume. You can access it from the southern end of Westward Beach, though it can be tricky to reach during high tide. But in an often crowded area like Malibu, sometimes a little seclusion is necessary.

Hidden Beach Park

This park is a small, hard to find place in the Rio Del Mar community in Aptos. It may seem like an obscure place to visit, but it’s located in a creek ravine that empties out onto a small but pleasant sandy beach.

Pinnacle Gulch Beach

Will you be visiting Bodega Bay? Head to the Bodega Harbor housing community, find the Pinnacle Gulch, and go straight to the bottom. This beautiful beach is for sure a must go to on our list of hidden California beaches. It begins with a wide mile-long trail and stairway that begins across the road from the parking lot. After you hike down to the narrow beach, you’ll find tide pools and beautiful large rocks.

Mesa Lane

Mesa Lane is located below the tall bluffs in Santa Barbara. The beach makes up a narrow band between the cliffs and the ocean, and it takes climbing down 241 stairs to reach it. Clearly, this is a beach best explored during low tide.

Fleener Creek Beach

Fleener Creek Beach is a beautiful hiking and beachcombing spot located near the quiet coastal town of Eureka. If you’re planning to road trip way up the coast to Northern California, this beach is a must-see. The Fleener Creek Trail is a nice, short half mile hike down a hill to the beach below the bluffs. To find it, start in the town of Ferndale and turn into Ocean Avenue until it becomes Centerville Road.

South Black’s Beach

The southern section of Black’s Beach, which is also known as Torrey Pines City Beach, is accessible through a gate at the intersection of Blackgold Road and La Jolla Farms Road. The beach has long, paved trails leading to it, and while parking is minimal, it’s usually easy to find.

Gray Whale Cove State Beach

Resting between the tiny town of Montara and Pacifica’s San Pedro Point, Gray Whale Cove is often missed by the tourists who pass it on Highway 1. While the beach tends to be a bit packed with locals on a clear and sunny day, it remains largely uncrowded on overcast days. Something to be aware of: You might see some nudity at Gray Whale Cove.

Luffenholtz Beach

Luffenholtz Beach is one of Northern California’s most solitary beach environments. Best during low tide, the beach is a great place to observe the beauty of the Pacific Ocean while relaxing and enjoying some peace and quiet.

 

California’s Haunted Highways

Do you believe in ghosts?

To some, it’s a silly question, but to others, paranormal activity isn’t something to be laughed about. For some California car rental travelers, apparitions are all around us… in fact, one might even be hitching a ride in the vehicle beside you!

According to local legend and lore, California is home to an overwhelming number of roadside spirits. Why, you might ask? Well, it depends on which haunted highway you’re asking about. From historical happenings to more recent accidents, there are more than a few infamous roads in this rambling state. Think you’ve got what it takes to hit these spooking roads after night in your California car rental? Read on to find out! Read more

How to Avoid a Truck’s Blind Spot With Your California Car Rental

The majority of California drivers have become accustom to sharing the road with a wide variety of vehicles. From bikes to buses, motorists are responsible for safely navigating their way around these important modes of transportation. This includes driving alongside large tractor-trailers. Big and bulky, these road-worn beasts are sizable obstacles to dodge – especially when driving a compact California car rental.

If you’re planning to spend some time on California’s freeways during your upcoming visit to the Bay Area, beware: trucks dominate these roadways. As a fellow road user, it’s important to note that many of these long haul vehicles are plagued by large blind spots. Make one wrong move in your rental and you could find yourself stuck in a very dangerous situation. Read more

The All-Inclusive Pricing Checklist

What you need to know before you go

Ahhh yes, summer holidays! Escaping for even just a few days is a great way to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. Unfortunately, it’s also a great way to drain your bank account. Hidden holiday fees, especially those associated with dodgy car rental firms, can really put a cramp on your vacation budget.

Every year, thousands of summer vacationers reserve what they believe to be an “all-inclusive” car rental vehicles before hitting the sun and surf in Southern California. Reeled in by bargain basement per-day prices, these renters are lead to believe that the price they pay at the time of booking is the full and final cost.

Sadly, this is rarely the case.

Victims of the old “bait and switch”, these California rental car companies know exactly how to trick travelers into believing they’re getting a great rental rate. Protect your pocketbook and your pride during your upcoming California rental car vacation; avoid unnecessary rental rip-offs with SuperCheap’s quick and easy all-inclusive pricing checklist.
