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