Driving Through Burbank
Burbank is between the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains and the sprawling San Fernando Valley, and is cut in half by the I-5, or the Golden State Freeway. State Route 134, an east–west route, cuts across the southern tip of Burbank and connects to the US-101, taking you west through the San Fernando Valley and beyond. If you want to spend some time shopping, arrange Burbank rental cars and drive along Magnolia Boulevard, a street lined with vintage clothing stores, independent boutiques, and antique shops. Los Angeles vacation packages should include at least a few tourist attractions showcasing the exciting world of movies and television, and Burbank has no shortage of options. Take a tour of the back-lots and sound-stages of the city's numerous studios, which include Warner Bros. Studios and NBC Studios. You can also be part of a live studio audience at a TV taping. Drive into Griffith Park, which forms Burbank's southern border, and visit some of its family-friendly attractions, among them the Los Angeles Zoo, and Travel Town Museum, which focuses on the railroad heritage of the west and offers rides on a miniature railway. The park also features hiking trails and is home to the historic Griffith Observatory. In a city known for its car culture, extensive network of freeways, and seemingly endless sprawl, rental cars in Los Angeles are key to exploring the area with ease.
