How to go from Los Angeles airport to the city

Tiffy ·
Up to 7 airports are located in Los Angeles. Here's a tip: If you plan to take an internal flight, leaving or going to Los Angeles, look carefully at the airport code.

If upon arrival you plan to pick up a rental car and there’s an office there, great, but if not, sometimes private transport becomes...

Re: LA rail extension great for beachgoers

Travel Rob ·
This will really help on time. As a kid, I took the bus from Santa Monica to Downtown LA a lot and it took forever but it was to be one of the most interesting rides anywhere. It goes through such diverse neighborhoods it almost doesn't seem real.

Re: Yelp Offers Health Grades for LA Restaurants

This is a first for both Yelp and the County Health Department, so I guess we'll have to view it as a pilot project before any other areas get added. I'm wondering (and I'm sure Yelp is, too) what effect it will have on discussion, and on user choices.

Re: JetBlue aims Buffalo-LA flight at Canadian flyers

DrFumblefinger ·
There's a fair bit of competition for Canadians at the Buffalo airport. My cousin lives near Niagara Falls and often uses Buffalo as her preferred departure airport. Given her close proximity, it makes a lot more sense than driving to Toronto, which is about as popular with Canadians as JFK and LAX are with Americans.

Great piece! The Huntington is one of my favorite places in the LA area and also pretty close to another one of my favorite spots ther , the beautiful racetrack, Santa Anita. As far as smog goes in LA , it really has gotten a lot better since I was a kid but still can be a shock to people.
