Richmond International (Byrd Field) (RIC) airport has been in operation since 1927. It's located centrally, which means you can get there via I-64 or I-295. Parking is available if you drive, or you can get to the airport in a taxi, hired car, or the EasyPark shuttle service. Flight duration is five hours to Los Angeles International (LAX) airport on a nonstop flight; stops will increase your travel time. In Los Angeles, you can rent a car, take the LAX Flyaway shuttle, or utilize public transportation.
Many people travel to Los Angeles to see Hollywood, but the area also boasts Universal Studios, the Getty Center, Griffith Observatory, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and, if you head north to Valencia, Six Flags Magic Mountain.
Other attractions include the Battleship USS Iowa, the Greek Theater, Santa Monica Bay and Runyon Canyon Park. Staples Center is a prime place to see sporting action. Among the annual events in Los Angeles County are Pasadena's Tournament of Roses Parade, the Firecracker Run, the Easter Street Fair, and the Persian Food Festival.
Los Angeles rarely sees temperatures that drop below 40 degrees, with summers warming up to the 80s in the coastal areas, and in the 100s inland. The best neighborhoods for tourists include West Hollywood, Beverly Grove and Westwood. LAX offers flights in the country and as far away as Germany, France and Tahiti.
