Coming from LA


Angelenos, need to get to the wedding?

There are a couple routes you can take to drive to Murrieta from Los Angeles.  The drive is about 80 miles and, according to Google Maps, it will take you around an hour and a half to get there.  We've done the drive a few times so far, and it's generally a longer drive than that due to road construction and our beloved SoCal traffic.  If you're driving straight to the wedding from LA, we'd suggest allowing yourself at least 2 hours.

Options from Downtown LA:

  1. 101 South to 5 South to 91 East to 15 South

  2. 101 South to 60 East to 71 South to 91 East to 15 South

  3. 101 South to 10 East to 71 South to 91 East to 15 South
