Places to Get Los Angeles Visitor Information
Flying into LA for a long or short stay? If you staying on the east side, the valley, downtown or North Hollywood , you might consider flying into The Bob Hope International airport in Burbank. It’s a smaller airport but many commercial airliners fly here for commensurate fares. Most visitors arrive at LAX (which is south of Playa Del Rey) and drive 20 minutes north (traffic depending) to popular Venice Beach and Santa Monica. If you’ve never been to a big city, and/or if English is a second language, a good source of visitor information for Los Angeles can be extremely helpful for navigating the sometimes confusing roads as well as finding local landmarks to visit. For the most fun for the time you’ve got in LA, paying attention to traffic patterns is critical.
A few centrally located LA tourist centers include one at Hollywood and Highlands Center, at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard, and one downtown at 685 South Figueroa Street. A multi-lingual staff is available at both centers (conveniently located next to public transportation), to advise on everything from dining to accommodations, as well as traveling directions and sightseeing options. These visitor centers offer great resources at no cost to you so that you can get the best out of your trip. Of course, one of the best resources of tourist tips is from people you know. As they say in Hollywood, ‘it’s all about who you know…’
