As one of the oldest cities in California, Azusa saw its beginnings as miners were striking gold. While those days are over, the area is still known for its natural beauty, as well as its historic past. Both continue to lure visitors to the foothills of the San Gabriels, and if you book a room in one of the many affordable Azusa hotels, you too can experience this storied town.
Whether you are flying into Ontario International or Bob Hope airports, Azusa is on public bus routes, as well as a developing Metrotrain line. However, if you have an interest in visiting the forests, mountains, and nearby towns, you will want to look into Azusa car rentals.
Azusa sits just below the San Gabriel Mountains, and adventure travelers and other outdoor enthusiasts won't want to miss the chance to hike through the Angeles National Forest and up to the Bridge to Nowhere. Once you've found your favorite among the cheap hotels in Los Angeles, put on your hiking boots and explore this arch bridge over the San Gabriel River. It was originally built in 1936 as a road link, but now it serves as a breathtaking vista and water crossing. Don't forget to investigate the Crystal Lake Recreation Area. Ideal for fishing, hiking, biking, and picnics, it's a cool escape from the hotter climate in the city. Hotels in Azusa are also ideally located near the Durrell House Museum. Built in the early 1920s, this home of the former Mayor is not only architecturally intriguing, but offers exhibits on the "golden past" of the area. And speaking of days gone by, if you visit in October, book into one of the hotels near Azusa in order to fully enjoy the week-long "Golden Days" downtown celebration, which includes carnival events, picnics, restaurant tastings, and even a parade.
