Just west of Burbank is the thriving neighborhood of Van Nuys. This San Fernando Valley region invites visitors to explore its golf courses, green spaces, and popular lake retreat. In addition, affordable Van Nuys hotels are just minutes away from the exciting entertainment centers of Burbank and the upscale eateries and boutiques of Studio City and Sherman Oaks. It's a prime location for fun in the California sun!
Visiting Van Nuys
Only 10 miles west from Bob Hope Airport, visiting Van Nuys can be done by public bus and taxi, although you may want to rent a car in Van Nuys if you plan on wandering beyond the main city streets. After choosing from Travelocity's many hotels in Los Angeles, drop your bags off and get ready to investigate.
Looking very much like an oasis in this desert region, popular Lake Balboa tempts visitors to rent paddle boats, go fishing, or take private vessels out on the calm waters. The lake is surrounded by significant green space, which gets a special burst of color when the Cherry Blossoms bloom – a glorious sight that also happens to be close to many of the hotels in Van Nuys. Dogs are welcome in the park, and there is a large-scale playground for children. Want to spend more time outdoors? Try the Japanese Garden. Filled with meditation gardens, streams, lakes, waterfalls, and even an authentic teahouse, it's a calm space inside a bustling city. Golf courses, a trampoline park, and even laser tag spots are all found within the neighborhood for added entertainment. Do you love film and television? Jump in the car and head east for the Warner Brothers Studio Tour before getting tickets and enjoying a taping of your favorite talk show. And if you are up for a longer drive, head west to Malibu for an afternoon relaxing beside the Pacific.
