Find the best car rental deals in Lake Elsinore, California

Enjoy California’s natural beauty in the town of Lake Elsinore. It was so-named for the state’s largest freshwater lake, whose shores it sits on. It has a long, proud history. While you can easily walk around the historic town, with its vintage street lamps and engaging museums, you’ll need a rental car to see the wider region.

With Los Angeles and its international airport just an hour away, you can rent a car through Orbitz and make your way through lush greenery and rolling hills to this charming little town. There are waterfalls to be discovered, and day trips to be enjoyed.

Lake Elsinore and beyond: Three destinations by car

Lake Elsinore is in the midst of beautiful Californian countryside. Here are three nearby places well worth the drive.

Tenaja and Ortega Falls

Go in search of nearby waterfalls on this day out in nature. Take a drive out to the trail head of Tenaja Falls and set off on the picturesque path. It follows the river up to the beautiful waterfall. The Ortega Waterfall is just a few minutes’ stroll from the car park, but equally impressive.

Journey time: About 40 minutes

Distance: Approximately 25 miles

Los Angeles

There’s a lot to take in in Los Angeles, so set off on a driving tour and see the sights in one day. Begin on Route 101 before heading over to Mulholland Drive, Laurel Canyon Road, Sunset Boulevard and, of course, the world-famous Rodeo Drive. You’ll pass all the great spots, and have enough time to hop out and take photos.

Journey time: About one hour

Distance: Approximately 70 miles

Joshua Tree National Park

Spend a day in the desert at Joshua Tree National Park. In fact, spend the day in two deserts, as it is here that the Mojave and the Colorado deserts collide. Set off on a driving tour of this vast wilderness, and discover bizarre-looking geological features, desert plants and animals, and some of the starriest skies in the world.

Journey time: About 1 hour 40 minutes

Distance: Approximately 95 miles
