Those flying from Houston to Los Angeles are in for an adventure! No matter the reason for your visit, you can't help but be swept up in the magic that is L.A. The City of Angles offers many attractions, including the famous Hollywood sign, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Venice Beach. With a rental car you are able to venture outside of the city and see many nearby attractions, including Universal Studios.
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the world's largest origin and destination airport, meaning it has more non-connecting passengers than anywhere else on the planet. This can make for a busy arrival, so you will want to make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to get into L.A. upon arrival.
Though it is only located 15 miles west of downtown Los Angeles, it does take about 40 minutes to drive into the city. Having a rental car will ensure the fastest commute, as you do not have to wait for public transportation.
If you have some extra time once you land in L.A., you might check out the Flight Path Learning Center located in the Imperial Terminal of LAX. This aviation museum gives visitors a hands on look at aviation history, featuring Howard Hughes memorbillia and a resource library.
Most flights from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to L.A, are nonstop and last for about three hours and 45 minutes.
