Travel & Transportation
Los Angeles provides numerous ways for travelers to visit, whether it’s by land, sea or air. LA is well-known for its love of cars, and interstate highways like US 101, Interstate 10 and Interstate 5 connect the City of Angels with the rest of the country. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is one of the busiest airports in the world. Amtrak has various train routes that service Los Angeles, connecting California cities such as San Diego, Santa Barbara and San Francisco, as well as daily routes to Seattle and Chicago. The World Cruise Terminal in San Pedro is the West Coast’s largest cruise terminal, with one million passengers embarking on ocean voyages on a dozen cruise lines every year.

Getting There


The main airport in Los Angeles, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), is roughly 10 miles from Downtown L.A. and easily accessible via car or public transportation. It is the third-busiest airport in the United States, with flights to and from almost anywhere. LAX is in the process of a multi-billion-dollar capital improvement program that improves service, enhances convenience and modernizes operations. This includes the $1.9 billion new Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT), with 60 new dining and luxury retail shops that showcase the best of L.A. cuisine, culture and lifestyle.
