Find cheap car rental deals in Camarillo, California
It’s possible to experience the sun and sights of Southern California without getting stuck in the crowds of LA. The city of Camarillo, a short trip west of Los Angeles, is a far more relaxing destination that still offers close proximity to SoCal’s coolest spots. While you’re visiting Camarillo, don’t miss its atmospheric Old Town, where locals set up stalls at the Farmers’ Market, and painters showcase their skills in independent art galleries.
To navigate Camarillo and the wider region, rent a car through Orbitz. You’ll have full flexibility to drive to the coastline or explore California’s mountains.
Use Camarillo as your base for exploring the beautiful beach cities that line the coast of Southern California. Hit the road in your rental car and drive to these three oceanfront destinations.
It’s easy to see why the rich and famous are drawn to the neighborhood of Malibu. It’s one of the most spectacular parts of LA’s coastline, with cliffs towering above picture-perfect sandy beaches. The area isn’t as exclusive as its reputation suggests, as there are public beaches and hiking trails that lead to waterfalls. If you just want a glimpse of the area, drive your rental car along the Pacific Coast Highway.

California’s own Riviera has a distinctly European feel. Unwind in the laid-back community here, where the red-topped roofs and elegant marinas recall the south of France. The relatively small city packs a big punch, with a popular zoo, a historic mission, and a traditional wharf adding to the appeal of this trendy beach resort. Of course, you could just come here to soak up the sun by the ocean.

Santa Monica is one of LA’s trendiest neighborhoods, its small-town atmosphere lending the area a hipster edge. It’s perhaps most famous for the Santa Monica Pier, where an old-school fairground brings in thrill-seekers and families. Its downtown region is packed with independent stores, while its beach is vast, sandy and blessed with warm sunshine throughout most of the year.
