When you board a plane at John Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and de-board at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you're traveling from the largest to the second-largest city in the country. Travelers will have plenty of time to plan their LA vacations during the little more than five-hour flight. Both airports deal with heavy traffic and long lines of travelers, but California offers a totally different environment. Amenities like free Wi-Fi and friendly volunteers in red jackets, assisting travelers, help visitors feel welcome. For those traveling with pets, the airport provides indoor pet parks for doggy potty breaks. After flying close to five hours, these perks can help ease the stress of air travel.
While LA covers more than 500 square miles, access to major freeways makes driving the best option. Have some spare time to kill? You can lounge on the beach or head to Hollywood. To access a rental car, go to the airport's ground transportation level. Follow the purple signs to a catch a shuttle. The 40 rental car companies available will provide free shuttles to their locations.
LAX is located in the southwest of LA, along the Pacific Coast. Marina Del Rey, a man-made harbor, is a few miles northwest. Manhattan Beach, three miles south, provides a 928-foot pier where crowds enjoy free fishing lessons and dolphin watching. Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach are also nearby.
