Los Angeles is one of the major American cities, and is located in the US state of California. It is easily the largest city in California, and is the 2nd largest in the US.

Primarily renowned for its mediterranean climate, ethnic diversity and celebrity culture, as well as the film and television industry, Los Angeles is hugely popular with American tourists and foreign visitors alike.

Los Angeles can be very expensive though, and you must take this into account when budgeting for your visit. While the local attractions can be quite reasonably priced, shopping malls, restaurants and bars can all be expensive.

With its familiar landscape, distinct and vibrant nightlife, along with a stunning sunset cityscape, Los Angeles remains one of the most highly visited cities in the world and provides endless entertainment opportunities targeted at the whole family.

Arriving LAX Airport

Los Angeles International Airport is the primary airport servicing the Californian city of Los Angeles. It is among the top 5 busiest airports in the world and is located approximately 26km from downtown Los Angeles.

Taxi cabs from the airport to the city center can be expected to cost in the region of $35-$45 to undertake this journey.

Airport processes generally move fairly quickly, although security checks and customs can often take longer than you would wish. Car rental queues also move quickly, and once you have completed baggage collection, it should not be too long before you are leaving the airport in your rental car and heading to your accommodation.

The airport offers an impressive array of bars, restaurants and shopping facilities, and as you would expect, these are generally slightly more expensive than the general Los Angeles area, but offer good quality and excellent service.

Driving Near LAX Airport

Driving in Los Angeles can be an exhilarating experience for the first-time driver. With its long, open road highways, it can be a truly relaxing venture, providing that you stay away from the city centre at peak-traffic hours.

Los Angeles roads are perfectly maintained and the road signage system is among the best in the US. It is by far one of the easiest cities in the US to drive in for first time American drivers.

Just be aware that local drivers do not have the highest patience threshold for overly careful drivers and you may need an updated GPS system to navigate the city without slowing down other drivers.

Car parking availability is very good, but can be quite expensive. However, the public transport system is extremely efficient and this may be the quickest way to visit everything that LA has to offer.

Los Angeles Driving Tips

  • Drivers are responsible for all passengers wearing seatbelts. If pulled over, it is the driver who will be charged for failing to ensure that seatbelts are worn at all times.
  • As with elsewhere in the US, drink driving is strictly prohibited. You will be pulled over and charged if you attempt to drink while you are driving.
  • American cars drive on the right side of the road. Only use the left lane while performing overtaking maneuvers.
  • Children under the age of 12 cannot sit in the front seat of the car. Also, all children under the age of 8 must have a car seat or booster seat in order to travel.
