The importance of the entertainment business to the city has led many celebrities to call Los Angeles and its surrounding suburbs home. LOS ANGELES where to go? the MUST VISIT list LET'S GO! TRAVEL TIPS when to GO? let's GO!!! •The Los Angeles area is served by five major commercial airports and more than a dozen private airports. The five major airports are located in Los Angeles, Burbank, Santa Ana, Long Beach, and Ontario.
•Los Angeles International (LAX) is the major gateway.
•Public transportation connections for the airport are not the greatest. LAX FlyAway runs shuttles to/from Union Station (half-hourly, $7.00 one way), Westwood, Van Nuys, and Irvine Station. There is no train service directly to the airport, but free shuttle buses run to the Metro Green Line at Aviation Station. Taxis to Downtown cost $45.00 and take 30 min in good traffic but can be far slower (and more expensive) in rush hour.
•The other airports in the Los Angeles area are Long Beach Airport (LGB), Bob Hope (Burbank) Airport (BUR), Orange County/John Wayne Airport (SNA), andLA/Ontario Airport (ONT) east of L.A. All five airports lack direct train service, only the Burbank Airport is somewhat in walking distance of a Metrolink commuter rail station (not to be confused with the Metro rail service). •The Greyhound terminal is at 1716 East 7th Street, near I-10 and South Alameda Street, south of the city's Downtown Arts District and east of the vast, notorious Skid Row district. by BUS by PLANE •The main Amtrak station is at Union Station, 800 N. Alameda St. next to the Hollywood (US-101) freeway in downtown Los Angeles. The train station also has a Metro Red Line subway station (platforms in station's basement) and Metro Gold Line light rail station (on platforms 1 and 2, parallel to the Amtrak and Metrolink trains), while local city buses stop at various locations around the terminal, including some in the MTA (Patsaouras) bus plaza at the east portal of the station. by TRAIN the MUST VISIT list TRAVEL TIPS The best time to visit Los Angeles is in summer, from June into September when there’s a lot of action at the beach. Los Angeles weather can reach into the 90s, but average temperature in the summer is in the mid-80s during the day, and the 70s at night. Reservations are a must at restaurants, but they’re not difficult to come by. Crowds can tend to be a little bit larger at some of the attractions and you might have to wait a little longer in the lines at Disney. PEAK SEASON:
JUNE - SEPTEMBER OFF-SEASON:
DECEMBER - MARCH Except during the holidays, Los Angeles sees the fewest visitors in winter, from November to March. Rains generally start in December or January and end in March. Nights are cool enough to require jackets, and can sometimes get down as low as the 40s. Days can be sunny and balmy, requiring only a long-sleeved T-shirt or light wrap. Hotels may be offering winter deals, but since L.A. is also a big business destination, a lack of tourists doesn’t necessarily result in deals. Some of the best times to visit L.A. are the spring months of March and April and the fall months of October into November. Days are warm but not hot, and nights are cool enough to require jackets. The sky is generally clear—in spring, it’s washed by rains, and in late fall it’s blown clear by the fabled Santa Ana winds. SHOULDER SEASON
MARCH : APRIL; OCTOBER - NOVEMBER Beach Cities / LAX Venice Beach includes the beach, the promenade that runs parallel to the beach ("Ocean Front Walk" or just "the boardwalk"), Muscle Beach, the handball courts, the paddle tennis courts, Skate Dancing plaza, the numerous beach volleyball courts, the bike trail and the businesses on Ocean Front Walk. Besides, the recreational fitness, family fun activities and shopping, Venice also has a fishing pier at the end of Washington Boulevard. Beverly Hills This world-famous city with its world-famous zip code is synonymous with wealth, status, and celebrity.

VENICE BEACH With coastal attractions stretching from Malibu all the way south to San Pedro and the Port of Los Angeles, LA’s beach communities are the epitome of Southern California’s Endless Summer. Malibu is the home of the Getty Villa, 27 miles of beaches, and numerous activities in the Santa Monica Mountains. Known for its Ocean Front Walk, Venice Beach is also home to Muscle Beach, the Venice Skate Plaza and numerous basketball, handball and paddle tennis courts. Venice’s Abbot Kinney Boulevard is known for its eclectic shopping and sophisticated eateries. Marina del Rey is one of the world’s largest man-made, small-boat harbors. South of LAX, San Pedro is home to LA’s World Cruise Center, Battleship IOWA, as well as CRAFTED, a marketplace for hundreds of local artisans.
