Drivetime, you are looking at approx. 2 - 2 1/2 hours one way from Aguora Hills to Downtown LA. You might find some of the smaller suburbs like Monrovia or Glendora that are 30 minutes from Downtown LA a better fit. This will give you more home at a better value and your drivetime to the beach will only be approx. 1 hr. If you have any further questions please let me know. Have a great day!
