Find cheap car rental deals in Lancaster, California
Lancaster is a quiet city, separated from the bright lights of LA by the peaks of the Los Angeles National Forest. That makes it a relaxing destination for anyone wanting to see the county without the potential stress of staying in central LA. The poppy-lined fields of Antelope Valley add to the appeal of this SoCal city.
As with many destinations in LA County, renting a car is an essential part of a trip here. Grab a deal on the car of your choice through Orbitz, then start exploring the Mojave Desert, the nearby cities, and the family-friendly attractions of the region.
Lancaster is situated on the northern edges of Los Angeles County. Use your rental car to explore the rest of the county, starting with these three destinations.
The city of Santa Clarita is mostly famous for two things. Firstly, it’s the home of the California Institute of the Arts, a famous school where many Disney and Pixar animators were trained. Secondly, it’s the home of Six Flags Magic Mountain, which packs in a dizzying number of high-speed, high-thrills rides. It even has an adjacent water park for those hot California summer days.
