March might just be one of the best months to visit Los Angeles. Sure, this means you don’t exactly get a tan while here, but no one stops you from taking a romantic walk on Catalina Island. It’s usually affordable to visit LA in March but book in advance.
The average high temperature in March in LA is 69F/21C and the average low is 51F/11C. Pack a jacket for the evenings and nights. A combination of shirts and sweaters is an excellent option for this month in LA. During the night it might be warm enough for t-shirts.

Flights and accommodation in March
March falls during the shoulder season, when it’s typically cheaper to travel anywhere. That’s the case of LA as well, so although it’s a good idea to book the flights in advance, you’ll be able to find good deals, especially if you avoid flying during important events (such as the LA Marathon).
Since more and more travelers choose to travel during the shoulder season, make sure to book the accommodation . Still, you’ll be able to find good deals but you can also consider a hostel or a vacation rental , especially if you travel with a group of friends.
What to do
LA Marathon takes place in March, so expect crowds to flock here for the event. You can cheer along the route, from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica Pier.
March is the month when the nature comes back to life so the Huntington Gardens offer an amazing display of colors. If you happen to get to LA on a rainy day, visit the art galleries within the gardens. Or visit the museums, go to the cinema and enjoy a hot tea (or coffee) is a cozy cafÃ©.
March 14 marks St. Patrick’s Day and there are plenty of events taking place in LA. Plus, it’s a good excuse to try the local clubs, right?
For a super display of colors, rent a car and head out of the town to see the poppies bloom. Or watch the swallows come back to town on March 19.
Especially if you travel with the kids, plan a visit to Disneyland. Or you can head to other theme parks in the area. Try to avoid the weekends, when it’s busiest.
If you travel with your significant other, you can head to Catalina Island and walk hand in hand.
You should definitely head to Hollywood and enjoy the Walk of Fame . Don’t forget to take a photo of your favorite celebrity’s star. During the day, shop on Sunset Boulevard and Rodeo Drive, while at night go club hopping.
