Hollywood is approximately 126 miles or 203 kilometres from San Diego. Obviously this differs slightly depending on where you class as your exact departure and arrival point, but from approximate centre to centre this is the distance.

This journey should take around 2hrs 15mins with no traffic, but at rush hour and peak times the journey is more likely to take around four hours. Remember that traffic in LA can be very bad and gets especially tedious on a Friday and so it is best to avoid peak times in this area.

The journey time and distance given is based on the following route. Join the US-101 S out of Hollywood, then merge on to the I-5 S and then take a slight left turn to I-805 S. Continue for just over 100 miles then take exit 20 to merge onto CA-163 S toward Downtown. From here continue onto 10th avenue, and then take your left at the second cross street onto 8th Avenue. This takes you to central San Diego.

If you decide not to drive, the next best option would be the train. You can board an Amtrak train in Downtown San Diego, Solana Beach or Oceanside and take it all the way up to Union Station in Downtown LA. Once at Union Station you can walk down to the RED Line subway and take the subway train directly into Hollywood. The train ride takes about 2hrs 45 mins and the subway is about 15 minutes from Downtown to Hollywood.
