Destination Los Angeles

Los Angeles is well known to be expansive. This is great,. However, travelers should take care when choosing which of the 5 airports in the Greater los Angeles area to fly to. LAX, the most populr, is also the largest  - and this means that there are frequent traffic jams on the way from airport to downtown. However, neither does public transport seem like a real alternative. There is no train service directly from the airport but buses run to the Metro Green line at Aviation Station. Cabs into downtown LA will cost around $45.00, taking half an hour if traffic is good. in the rush hour, traffic can be painfully slow and the ride will cost a lot more. Hollywood and Disneyland are the city's saving grace and make up for all these inconveniences.
