Southern Californians know how to day-cation. To no surprise, those day trips can easily turn into multi-day adventures. While the destination may not be far, the drive should be one of comfort, safety and style. With a Mercedes-Benz, you never have to question what you’re going to get. From camping with the family to shopping in LA, here are five fun trips to take your Benz on the next time the road calls.
Southern California Road Trips
Sprinter Van to Joshua Tree
Feel the comforts of home while experiencing the wild! The sublime landscape of Joshua Tree is heightened when you’re comfortable enough to fully appreciate it. The Sprinter Van not only provides the ease of transport, but it’s also built to accommodate necessities for an overnight stay. With removable seats perfect for the campfire, the spacious interior is yours to create the perfect sleeping quarters.

S 63 Coupe to Beverly Hills
The S 63 Coupe is all about unassuming style embedded with technology that’s actively working for you, perfect for a trip to Beverly Hills. “It’s monumentally important to focus on how comfortable and responsive this vehicle is,” says Grant Dossey. There’s everything from pedestrian recognition to collision prevention technology that can even assist with over-steering. Oh, and don’t forget the contoured seating with massage capabilities for when that daily LA gridlock traffic kicks in.
SL 550 Convertible to San Diego
Beach towns and convertibles make a perfect pair. With the SL 550, “you can take the top down while driving 25 miles per hour down the beach.” The solid top design allows you to convert on the go, taking full advantage of the sunshine and ocean breeze. Even with its sporty design, there is still plenty of room for the overnight bags. It’s California cool with all the functions you need.
GLS 450 to Disneyland
When it comes to a trip like Disneyland, you need a vehicle that can not only contain the excitement for the drive there, but also be comfortable enough for the drive back after a day of adventuring. Most seven-seaters feel cramped, but for Grant, the GLS 450 “is the first seven-seater where I have been completely comfortable in the back seat.” So whether its little ones or kids at heart, legroom and comfortability are key. And with its suspension and braking systems, any surprises on the road are easily met.
G 550 to Palm Springs
Sometimes on the way to your planned destination, an impromptu detour is unavoidable. The G 550 has the amenities and design to handle a trip to the desert. With so much to explore out in Palm Springs, off-roading should always be on the menu. “It was originally designed as a military transport vehicle—it has the Mercedes style while keeping those rugged bones.” It’s perfect for a mountain climbing trip by day and black tie by night.
