Note that LAX is part of the Los Angeles World Airports system called “LAWA”, which, in addition to LAX, includes Ontario and Van Nuys Airports.

Los Angeles is one of the world’s most famous cities, home to celebrities and by far the epicenter of the massive American media entertainment machine.    However you may be disappointed if you expect to walk into glamour in the area surrounding  “Hollywood and Vine” which is in Hollywood.   Although that intersection is pretty with some nice shops, the Kodak theater, and cool attractions like the Walk of Fame and Grauman’s Chinese Theater of the Mann Theater empire, the sidewalk and shops and surrounding buildings can be dingy and dusty – more like what you’d expect in a regular big city than in what some would say is the global capital of glamour and style.

Still, Hollywood is a “must see” for a Southern California Trip so enjoy yourself – just don’t expect to get into “American Idol”.     However you may find tickets for TV shows or even movies – note that these are generally free so as on any trip use caution with anybody “selling” you any travel services in that area.

Obviously another must see in the are is Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure (adjacent to each other but not always included on same admission pass depending on which you choose).  Disneyland has managed to retain much of the charm it’s held for children and adults for nearly half a century.    Disney’s California Adventure is more of a ride focused park with some spectacular rides.    Don’t miss “Soarin’ Over California”, a simulated hang glide over the state and a neat and dramatic mini- introduction to the geography of one of the most amazing regions in the world.

Los Angeles Airport (LAX) and Ontario Airport (ONT) are reporting that most flights will be “full or nearly full” this summer travel season:

Los Angeles Airport Authority Press Release excerpt:
Flights from Los Angeles International (LAX) and Ontario International (ONT) Airports this summer will be full or nearly full due to growing demand for travel and a tight supply of seats. Both airports are expecting another busy summer travel season this year.

If you are planning a trip this summer and don’t have your airline tickets you’ll want to start pricing dates ASAP. Tools like Kayak.com and Orbitz.com allow you to provide a range of dates that you can travel. Using a range, rather than specific dates, often opens up cheaper flights.
