Weather Lowdown

November is the start of the rainy season in Los Angeles, and temperatures begin to decline with an average temperature of 17°C (about 62°F). The average high temperature still reaches 23°C (around 73°F) but can also reach as low as 10°C (about 50°F). Still not bad, considering many other areas around the States have already had the first snowfall of the year by this point.

The amount of average daily sunshine is about nine hours a day, meaning you will still be able to head out in light clothes during the day. You also still have time to enjoy outdoor activities during the day in Los Angeles. However, seeing as evenings are cooler, a light jacket would be appropriate to take with you. You have an excellent chance of having a sunny day while visiting Los Angeles in November, at 68 percent.

The average rainfall during November is 31mm and rain falls, on average, three days during the month. So, it is likely you may experience a light shower if you visit Los Angeles around this time. Pack your umbrella, poncho or raincoat just in case. The chance of rain on any given day is 13 percent and the chance of a cloudy day is 11 percent.

The average sea temperature is a chilly 17°C (around 63°F), so it would not be advisable to go swimming unless you're feeling brave and have the proper wet or dry suit. With the chances of abundant sunshine, hanging out at the beach is still a good option. Even if you're not planning on getting in the water, with all the sunshine, you'll still want to pack sunscreen, hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun's rays.

Where to Stay

Catering toward a young, hip crowd, Stay on Main Hotel Los Angeles offers shared and private rooms at an affordable rate. When staying here, you'll get free continental breakfast, afternoon snacks and Wi-Fi and get to participate in group activities like ping pong, video games and movies. Stay on Main is only minutes from LA LIVE and a short Metro ride to Hollywood.

A cozy, boutique hotel just blocks from Los Angeles' Wilshire Boulevard, Shelter Hotel offers rooms with a king bed or two double beds. All the rooms have flat screen TVs, iPod alarm clocks and free Wi-Fi. The Metro subway and bus stations are only steps from the hotel, providing easy access to the best of Los Angeles.

Bringing Japanese flair to Los Angeles, the Mikayo Inn in Los Angeles is one of two Mikayo Inns in the States. Along with the typical hotel room amenities, the rooms here have heated water bidets and the executive rooms come with a Japanese rain shower and bath. The Japanese touches go beyond the rooms with an on-site sushi bar and karaoke lounge.

Things to Do

Americans celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November to commemorate the Pilgrims' original settlement in New England in the 17th century. Most people have family celebrations with traditional turkey dinners, and this is also on the menu at many of Los Angeles' top restaurants.

Even in the warm Mediterranean weather, the Holiday Ice Rink in Pershing Square opens every November and features an outdoor skating rink similar to the famous Rockefeller center ice rink in New York.

The NBA season is in full swing in November, so consider taking in a LA Lakers or LA Clippers professional basketball game at the Staples Center. The LA Kings professional NHL hockey team also calls the Staples Center home, so you can catch them in action as well. If sports aren't your thing, the Staples Center hosts other events like concerts, comedians and ice shows.
