Visiting Agoura Hills
The closest major airport to Agoura Hills is Burbank Bob Hope Airport (BUR), approximately 30 miles away. You can travel between the airport's Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC) and Agoura Hills hotels using public transport, but expect to take at least two Los Angeles Metro buses. Several private shuttle companies offer services between Agoura Hills and the airport, as do local taxi companies. You can also arrange rental cars in Agoura Hills, or pick one up at the RITC, where 11 car rental companies have desks. Having a car makes it easy to get around the city and to the trailheads in the Santa Monica Mountains. Hikers might also want to explore the trails around the rustic neighborhood of Old Agoura, which include the 11-mile Cheeseboro Canyon Trail, or head to nearby Paramount Ranch, a historic filming location for old westerns that's now a National Park Service property. You'll be ready to return to one of the numerous hotels near Agoura Hills, which include some of the most elegant hotels in Los Angeles and the wider region. In the evening, check out the schedule at Agoura Hills' Canyon Club, which regularly hosts big name performers.
