Whether you're flying to Los Angeles from Chicago for business or pleasure, you'll be trading one big busy city for another. Los Angeles is one of America's most famous destinations with tons of places to explore, especially when you have your own transportation.
After picking up your rental car at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you can enter the city's sprawling freeway system. Watch out for certain unique-to-LA traffic issues such as high-speed police chases and celebrity chasing. LAX isn't far from the water, and you can head out to Vista Del Mar for some coastal scenery.
Los Angeles is a sprawling metropolis, and first-time guests will want to visit Hollywood and Universal Studios. Other popular attractions associated with LA include Disneyland and Newport Beach, both about an hour's drive out of LA in Anaheim, making a rental car very useful. A car will also get you to your sport of choice as you can catch the LA Dodgers at Dodger Stadium or the LA Lakers at the Staples Center.
In-air flight time between Chicago O'Hare International (ORD) and Los Angeles is just under four hours. Gate to gate time is usually around four hours for a nonstop flight.
